FINAL
UGA 42
UF 20
Florida scores 17 unanswered points in the third quarter but can’t overcome a considerable deficit as top-ranked Georgia defeats its SEC Eastern Division rival in Jacksonville at TIAA Bank Field. 
4th quarter
– Xzavier Henderson with another long reception to go over 100 receiving yards on the day. 110 yards and a touchdown for Henderson today. 
– The ‘Dawgs can’t convert on 4th-and-3 and the Gators take back over on offense with 1:32 left to play. 
– Georgia’s just looking to run out the clock now. Daijun Edwards gains 19 yards to give him 105 rushing yards today, making him the first 100-yard rusher for the ‘Dawgs this season. 
– Florida’s driving into UGA territory as the Gators try and remain in the game, but the drive stalls out at UGA’s 15-yard line. The Gators go for it on 4th-and-11, and Richardson throws into double coverage after the pressure comes. Georgia think it’s picked off Richardson for the second time tonight, but replay rules it incomplete. The ‘Dawgs take over at their 15-yard line. 
– SCORE: Brock Bowers with another reception, his sixth reception of the game. Trey Dean was in coverage but couldn’t make the play. Georgia’s to Florida’s four-yard line. The ‘Dawgs are now 8-for-8 on fourth down. From four yards out, McIntosh punches it in to give UGA the 42-20 lead after the extra point. 
– Florida turns it over on downs at midfield as Richardson’s targets are covered and the pressure gets there quickly. Georgia takes back over at midfield. 
3rd quarter
— Georgia answers right back on its next drive and Daijun Edwards caps the drive with a 22-yard rushing touchdown to reinstate the double-digit lead for the ‘Dawgs. The extra point is successful to push Georgia’s lead to 35-20. 
– SCORE: Anthony Richardson finds Xzavier Henderson uncovered down the sideline and hits him in stride for a 78-yard touchdown. Mihalek’s extra point is good, the ‘Dawgs commit a penalty that’s declined. It’s suddenly a one-possession game. 
– Amari Burney intercepts Bennett and the Gators will take back over. Rashad Torrence picks up an unnecessary roughness penalty after the play, but the Gators get the ball back at their own 28-yard line. Florida has also received its first sideline warning of the game. 
– SCORE: Florida’s drive stalls out but Mihalek knocks home the 26-yard field goal to make it a two-possession game. Gators have scored 10 unanswered points out of halftime. 
– Amari Burney goes for the strip, forces the fumble and the Gators recover at Georgia’s 27-yard line. A huge play, and now Florida has another opportunity to cut into this deficit. 
— SCORE: Etienne rushes up the middle from two yards out for Florida’s first touchdown of the afternoon. Gators trim into the 25-point deficit and trail UGA, 28-10, after Mihalek’s extra point. 
— Etienne picks up 10 yards on 3rd-and-7 to extend the drive. Florida has first-and-goal from the 6-yard line now. 
— Anthony Richardson picks up nine yards with his legs for a UF first down, and the Gators are inside the red zone. On 1st and 10, Richardson overthrows an open Keon Zipperer. 
— Florida goes for it on 4th-and-4, but not before UGA calls a timeout. The Dawgs don’t hear the whistle and hit Richardson after the whistle for an automatic first down. 
— Gators take over on their 25-yard line to open the second half, and Etienne picks up a first down on a short reception. Florida sticks with Etienne and he picks up 14 yards for another first down. 
2nd quarter

— SCORE: McConkey with the seven-yard completion to score Georgia’s fourth touchdown of the first half. 28-3
— Georgia’s threatening to score again before halftime. Jason Marshall Jr. is whistled for defensive pass inference to give UGA the ball on the seven-yard line with 21 seconds left before halftime. 
— Again, the Gators go three-and-out and Crawshaw’s punt goes out of bounds on UGA’s 36-yard line. 38-yard punt. 
— Florida will get the ball back with 2:16 remaining in the first half after Bennett’s pass attempt is incomplete down the right sideline. The punt goes out of bounds at UF’s 15-yard line. 
— SCORE: Florida’s drive stalls out but Adam Mihalek nails the 52-yard field goal. There won’t be a shutout today. 431st consecutive game where the Gators haven’t been shutout, which extends the NCAA record.
Austin Barber is in at left tackle for Richard Gouraige and Michael Tarquin remains at right tackle.
Amari Burney with a tackle for loss in the backfield, a 5-yard loss on 2nd down to bring up 3rd-and-11. Bennett’s pass is incomplete and the Gators force UGA to punt for the second time today. Credit Brenton Cox with the pass break-up and Trey Dean with the QB hurry. Henderson returns the punt to the 34-yard line but a block in the back penalty will back the Gators up to the 24.
Jeremy Crawshaw with a short punt and Georgia will start on its 34. That was Crawshaw’s fifth punt of the day. He had 14 punts on the season coming into today’s game.
— SCORE: Amari Burney can’t break up the pass intended for Brock Bowers, and the standout tight end is able to haul it in on the bobble and complete the 73-yard reception for the score. Georgia takes a 21-0 lead.
— Consecutive penalties on the Gators – a false start followed by a holding call – means the Gators will have to punt it away again. Crawshaw’s punt bounces out of bounds at the 18-yard line. Florida can’t take advantage of the takeaway.
Jadarrius Perkins intercepts Stetson Bennett down the sideline. Just ripped the ball away from the wide receiver. Richardson’s whistled for intentional grounding on the next play to make it 2nd-and-23.
1st quarter
– END OF 1Q: Another three-and-out for the Gators. Crawshaw with another punt. Gators have three punts to three rush yards with two seconds left in the first quarter. The ‘Dawgs take over at their 30-yard line and hand it off to McIntosh to bring the quarter to a close.
– SCORE: McIntosh punches it in from a yard out to put the ‘Dawgs up, 14-0 pending the extra point.
– Antwaun Powell-Ryland Jr. saves a touchdown by bringing down Edwards after a 20-yard gain. UGA’s at Florida’s 27-yard line and looking to take a double-digit lead as the first quarter ticks down. Already nine first downs today for the ‘Dawgs.
Brock Bowers gets back to work and picks up 19 yards down the right sideline. His third reception so far today.
– On third-and-long, UF’s whistled for a false start on center Kingsley Eguakun. After the penalty, Richardson evades the pressure and dumps it off to Etienne, who picks up 12 yards but the Gators will again punt it away. Crawshaw’s punt takes several favorable bounces but Florida can’t stop it from bouncing into the end zone. Georgia will start its third drive from the 25-yard line.
Trevor Etienne returns the kick-off from the three-yard line to the 36-yard line. The freshman running back made several would-be tacklers miss before picking up extra yards. On first down, Etienne stays on the field and rushes for a one-yard gain. The Gators look to Etienne again on second down by throwing to him in the flat, but he loses two yards to bring up 3rd-and-11.
– SCORE: A completion by Dillon Bell gets the ball to the 1-yard line, and Daijun Edwards punches the ball in from short to give the top-ranked Bulldogs a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter.
– Georgia picks up another first down on a 3-yard rush to bring up 2nd-and-7 from Florida’s 11-yard line. ‘Dawgs threatening to open the scoring.
– Bennett completes to Brock Bowers for a 24-yard gain. Two Gators were in coverage but couldn’t break up the pass. On first down from Florida’s 42-yard line, Bennett again finds Bowers, this time for a 9-yard gain.
– Georgia star Jalen Carter, who was questionable to play today, was in on that third-down stop for Georgia. A boost for the ‘Dawgs on defense.
Anthony Richardson has no one open on first down, but he gets outside the pocket and picks up four yards on the ground. Richardson takes a tough hit at the end of the play but is able to shake it off and remain in the game. Florida rushes it on second down for no gain, and Richardson can’t complete to Keon Zipperer on 3rd-and-6. Gators will punt it right back to the ‘Dawgs.
– Tre’Vez Johnson can’t come up with the interception, setting up 3rd-and-8. Bennett’s pass attempt is incomplete, intended for Kearis Jackson, and the Bulldogs have to punt it away on their first drive of the afternoon.
– Bennett completes for an 18-yard gain to move the chains after a pair of penalties backed the ‘Dawgs up 15 yards. Florida couldn’t take advantage of the negative yardage.
– Georgia’s whistled for a hold on the second play of the game to set up a 1st-and-20 after McIntosh’s first-down run. Then UGA’s whistled for a false start to make it 1st-and-25.
– Florida kicks off for a touchback. Desmond Watson makes the start on defense as McIntosh rattles off a 11-yard run on the first play of the game.
Pregame
– Florida wins the coin toss and defers to the second half. Georgia will receive the opening kickoff.
– Georgia wide receiver AD Mitchell made the trip to Jacksonville but he isn’t dressed out for warmups, meaning he’s all but guaranteed to miss the game.
Lloyd Summerall isn’t dressed out prior to warmups. The JACK linebacker was listed as “questionable” on UF’s depth chart, released Wednesday at the conclusion of practice.
