Halftime stats and observations

1. Aaron Murray is firing away tonight. The freshman quarterback has 220 passing yards and three TDs, and it's only halftime. He also has that nice downfield block on Washaun Ealey's 34-yard run.

2. Speaking of Ealey, he has 49 rushing yards on just three carries. Caleb King has three yards on four carries.

3. The receiving leaders: A.J. Green (four catches for 46 yards), Kris Durham (three catches for 90 yards, 1 TD) and Orson Charles (two catches for 67 yards, 1 TD).

4. Georgia Tech ran the ball 39 times in the first half. It attempted three passes. Yup, that seems about right.

5. The Yellow Jackets are averaging 4.5 yards per carry. Considering they're willing to run the ball every play and take that average all the way into the end zone, the Bulldogs have to stiffen up in the second half.

6. Georgia nose tackle DeAngelo Tyson and end Abry Jones each already have a season-high seven tackles (only two of them solo). That's how many of the runs are going up the middle.

7. The prognosis for a Georgia win isn't rocket science: Just get off the field a few times on defense, and that should be enough, since Georgia's offense is looking so unstoppable so far.

But getting off the field will be key for that defense. The Yellow Jackets dominated time of possession, at nearly 18 minutes, so there's a danger the Bulldogs could wear down.
