ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia got off to a rocky start in Saturday's 45-21 win against North Texas before closing the game on a 24-0 run. Let's take a quick look at three Bulldogs who made big impacts in the victory:

Leonard Floyd: The freshman outside linebacker teamed with Jordan Jenkins to pound Mean Green quarterback Derek Thompson all afternoon. Floyd recorded Georgia's only two sacks, for 17 yards in lost yardage, and tied for third on the team with six tackles. Floyd and Jenkins both made two tackles for a loss, and Georgia had 10 TFLs as a team in holding North Texas to just 7 rushing yards and 245 yards of total offense.

Tray Matthews: The final score might not indicate it, but Matthews made one of the biggest plays of the game when he intercepted a Thompson pass in the third quarter. Georgia had just taken a 28-21 lead, but North Texas was threatening to tie the game once again before the freshman safety made a diving interception at Georgia's 5-yard line to halt the drive. Matthews also led the team with two pass breakups.

Aaron Murray: He played longer than anyone expected Saturday, but Georgia's senior quarterback made good use of the extra playing time. He finished 22-of-30 for 408 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He also scored a 1-yard rushing TD. Murray's 98-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Davis -- Murray's 100th career touchdown pass -- was the longest pass play in UGA history and Murray also passed former Bulldogs quarterback David Greene for third on the SEC's career total offense list. Murray now has 11,352 career yards, trailing only Florida's Tim Tebow (12,232) and Chris Leak (11,380).
