Final scrimmage a real barn burner!

Georgia won its final scrimmage, albeit against the scout team. Given (literally) a 35-0 halftime lead, the scout team wasted it and lost 49-48 in OT. Only real news though was that Richt expects Malcome to start against Buffalo. Proving one if two things: 1) these stats we've been given (where Gurley has clearly been the star) are completely worthless, and/or 2) the head coach is still a sucker for seniority.

Pass break-ups: Damian Swann 2, Washington, Branden Smith, Williams.
Int: Herrera 23-yard return for touchdown.
FG: 57-yarder missed. Richt didn’t say but I am assuming it was Marshall Morgan with the attempt.
Notable: Keith Marshall had impressive moves on the way to his touchdown catch from Murray. No stats for Ogletree or Rambo. Read into that, if you dare. Richt obviously testing the kid Marshall's leg some. Other than that the QB lines stand out to me the most. They clearly rebounded after being called out by Richt last week. Over 300 yards, 3 TDs and no interceptions.
