Week 6 helmet stickers
By David Ching
No. 6 Georgia barely survived Tennessee's upset bid on Saturday, with the Bulldogs winning 34-31 in overtime. With this week's helmet stickers, we'll single out three players who made that win a reality.
Aaron Murray: Georgia asked its quarterback to save the Bulldogs from a late deficit for a second straight week, and for a second time Murray delivered. Despite the absence of many of his top playmakers, Murray drove the team 75 yards for the game-tying touchdown -- a 2-yard pass to Rantavious Wooten with 5 seconds to play -- and the Bulldogs won with a Marshall Morgan field goal in overtime.
J.J. Green: When Keith Marshall left the game with a knee injury -- and All-SEC tailback Todd Gurley was already out with an ankle ailment -- Georgia leaned on diminutive freshman Green to carry the running game. Green responded with 17 carries for 132 yards (7.6 ypc). His fellow freshman back Brendan Douglas also deserves a nod for his 32-yard catch and run to the Tennessee 13 on Georgia's game-tying touchdown drive
Marshall Morgan: The SEC's Special Teams Player of the Week came up big again -- and not just when he hit the game-winning 42-yard field goal in overtime. The sophomore drilled a 56-yard field goal in the first quarter that was the longest in Neyland Stadium history and the longest this season in the SEC. Morgan missed from 39 yards in the third quarter, but the two clutch makes more than make up for that miss off the upright.
