JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There was nothing pretty about Georgia’s 17-9 win against Florida on Saturday from the Bulldogs’ perspective, except the final score.

The annual showdown in Jacksonville was downright nasty, with the two teams combining for 227 yards in penalties, and Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray was terrible for three quarters before leading a late touchdown drive that finally helped the Bulldogs pull away a bit.

But No. 10 Georgia (7-1, 5-1 SEC) showed toughness that clearly had been lacking in its last two games, handing No. 2 Florida (7-1, 6-1) its first loss of the season -- and its first back-to-back defeats against Georgia since 1988-89 -- taking over first place in the SEC East with two league games to play.
