Georgia is proud of its rushing tradition, but on Saturday in the Orange Bowl, the Bulldogs took it to another level as it built a 28-3 lead with 10:18 to play in the 1st half.

Ladd McConkey was the latest punctuation as he scored from 27 yards out with 10:18 remaining as Georgia built a 28-3 lead. Florida State’s shell-shocked roster moves following the College Football Playoff snub appeared to take a toll early. The Seminoles missed as many as 8 defenders from opt outs and transfer portal moves.

Georgia began the game with 299 total yards, including 167 on the ground with 8:02 left in the first half. The Bulldogs had 14 first downs, but also averaged an eye-popping 11.9 yards per rush. By comparison, Florida State by that point had 5 first downs, 40 rushing yards and averaged 3.6 yards per carry.

McConkey’s touchdown came after Georgia forced a fumble which created a short field.

Kendall Milton got the party started with 7 carries for 91 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and Daijun Edwards also contributed a touchdown with 5 carries for 59 yards to start the game.
