The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs went up by three touchdowns in the first half against the Florida Gators with a lot of talent and a little bit of luck. It may not have been a Prayer-at-Jordan-Hare-level of tipped pass, but Bulldogs tight end Brock Bowers grabbed a pass that linebacker Amari Burney tipped forward to him while attempting to intercept the ball.

Burney was tripped up, and Bowers snagged the ball and ran it the rest of the way in for the Bulldogs’ third touchdown of the half. Florida has had a few just-missed interception opportunities today, but that one has to sting with a score on the end of it.

Georgia entered this game as a heavy favorite, despite the long-standing competitive rivalry between the two teams. Florida lost its way after a strong season opener against Utah, dropping to 4-3 overall and 1-3 in the SEC.

Bowers is one of the nation’s best tight ends and is expected to be one of the top prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft.
