Halftime observations

- Georgia has 100 more offensive yards than Mississippi State, has held the ball for 9:40 longer and has twice as many first downs.

And yet UGA trails by a point. Red zone, anyone?

- This game is there for Georgia. If it doesn't clamp down on its mistakes and take control in the second half, it has only itself to blame.

- One less crucial mistake by either team, and we have a different ballgame right now: If Washaun Ealey doesn't fumble, or Marlon Brown doesn't hold at the end of Kris Durham's run. Or Mississippi State doesn't throw a silly halfback option or jump offsides on a punt return.

- Aaron Murray is playing fantastic, except for the red zone. He has 155 yards passing and 24 rushing, and no turnovers. I don't know if the red zone problems are really his fault, though. If Georgia had a more effective run attack, that would certainly help.

- Kris Durham, wow. I guess he's long since answered whether his play is any fluke.

- Bacarri Rambo can't seem to catch a break, can he.

- The defense, or special teams, could still use a big turnover. The Darryl Gamble interception was a gift, but hey it counts.

- That said, I still don't quite trust the Georgia defense to have a huge second half. It's played well since the opening drive, but still seems prone to the kind of one-play breakdowns that could decide a game.

- Where's the breakaway ability for the Georgia tailbacks?
