ATHENS, Georgia -- For the first 30 minutes of Saturday's opener against No. 16 Clemson at Sanford Stadium, No. 12 Georgia looked like a lot of other teams on the opening weekend of the college football season.

Pretty average.

Georgia's much-maligned defense couldn't keep the Tigers off the field, and its offense couldn't seem to stay on on it.

At least the Bulldogs had junior tailback Todd Gurley.

Gurley, who was plagued by ankle injuries the past season, carried the ball only four times in the first half, but his 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown helped the Bulldogs tie the score at 21 before the half.

In the second half, Gurley showed why he's among the frontrunners for the Heisman Trophy, as he ran wild to finish with a career-high 198 rushing yards on 15 carries with four total touchdowns.

"He had four [carries], huh?" Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said, when asked about Gurley's first-half workload.

With Gurley finally healthy, Georgia might be the team to beat in the SEC East and a contender for one of the four spots in the first College Football Playoff. Gurley gives the Bulldogs a commodity that a lot of other teams don't have -- a player who can change a game in an instant and do it time and time again.

"I think he's the best player in America, or at least one of them," Richt said.

No. 1 Florida State suspended starting defensive end Chris Casher for the Seminoles' opener against Oklahoma State on Saturday night because of an "academic-related matter," the school announced.

"Chris Casher is being withheld pending review of an academic-related matter," the statement read. "Student privacy will not allow us to expand any further."

The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Casher, a redshirt sophomore, was slated to make his first career start after playing in 13 games last season. He missed most of his freshman season with a knee injury.

The Seminoles won the game, 37-31.

Casher missed practice Thursday, and Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said it was because Casher had a class-related absence.

During the summer, FSU had placed Casher on probation for one year for two violations of the university's student code of conduct stemming from the sexual assault investigation into quarterback Jameis Winston, the Wall Street Journal reported.

In 2012, police briefly detained Casher and Winston after a person reported two men were carrying a gun on campus, USA Today reported. It was a pellet gun, and Winston and Casher told police they were shooting at squirrels, according to the report.

The two were also investigated for damage at the apartment complex they lived at during their freshmen seasons. The damage from the BB gun "battle" cost $4,200, the report stated.
