Georgia slipped a bit in 2009, losing five games. But the Dawgs finished in style, running Big 12 opponent Texas A&M straight out of Shreveport in a 44-20 win in the Independence Bowl. The Dawgs won somewhat unconventionally as they got 24 points off of special teams - including a 81-yard kickoff return and a 49-yard field goal. The Dawgs have now won four straight bowl games while Texas A&M has lost four straight.
Many folks in Athens began to turn up the heat on Mark Richt after a sub-par 8-5 season in his 9th year guiding the Dawgs. Especially drawing criticism was the play and the coaching of the defense. The defense Monday night wasn't superb, but it was good enough for the win.
This game's scoring came in odd bunches. The score was 0-0 late into the second quarter, and it appeared that it would be that way until haftime. But the two teams managed to score three touchdowns in the final 2 and a half minutes, and UGA took the lead 14-7 into the break. A&M tied it up quickly in the 3rd quarter, but Georgia scored five straight times after that to put this one away. A late A&M score made things look a bit more respectable.
Dawg running back Caleb King had two touchdowns, while quarterback Joe Cox and receiver Aron White also hooked up twice for scores. Blair Walsh had 10 points for Georgia via field goals.
