College Football Recap: Gator Bite

Florida (49) - Georgia (10): The Gators laid a beatdown on rival Georgia, stomping the Bulldogs to the tune of 49-10. Florida remembered how Georgia celebrated their first score in last season's 42-30 win, and were all too happy to exact revenge. Florida coach Urban Meyer even called two timeouts in the final minute to rub it in some more. • Missouri (31) - Baylor (28): It took a 34-yard field goal from Jeff Wolfert with about 2 minutes remaining to help the 14th ranked Tigers escape with the win over Baylor. Freshman Robert Griffin chose the most inopportune time to throw his first pick of the season (in 210 attempts) - it came as Baylor attempted a last-minute drive to pull it out, sealing the deal for Missouri. • Utah (13) - New Mexico (10): The guys at Utah don't really care how they get their second BCS bowl bid in four years. They'll take the wins any way they can get them - ugly or not. "It doesn’t matter to me one bit, don’t care," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. The Utes only managed one touchdown, and relied heavily on their defense to pull off the victory. • Georgia Tech (31) - Florida State (28): Sorry, Bobby Bowden. There would be no miracle comebacks on this day. Georgia Tech safety Cooper Taylor made sure of this by popping the ball loose from Marcus Sims with his helmet, on a last-ditch effort to get into the end zone from the 3-yard line. "It was the last play of the game, we either had to stop them right there (or lose)," Taylor said after his squad beat the 16th ranked Seminoles. “I’m in shock right now." • BYU (45) - Colorado State (42): For a long while there, things looked a bit dicey for the Cougars. For the second week in a row, it took a late rally for BYU to escape with a win - this time defeating Colorado State by three. Dennis Pitta sealed the victory with a 17-yard grab, scoring the TD with 22 seconds remaining.
