Outback Bowl Score Update: Michigan State Rallies With 14-Point Third Quarter, Trails Georgia By Two

The Georgia Bulldogs owned the first half of the Outback Bowl against the Michigan St. Spartans, racing out to a 16-0 lead, but the Spartans rallied in the third quarter. Michigan State blanked the Bulldogs, 14-0, in the third to make the score 16-14 headed into the fourth.

The Spartans got into the scoring column with an eight-yard run from La'Veon Bell; a Darqueze Dennard interception of an Aaron Murray pass attempt set up that possession for the Spartans. Michigan State went for two and converted as Kirk Cousins hooked up with Brian Linthicum.

Later in the period, Dennard made his second interception of the game, picking off Murray and returning it 38 yards for a touchdown. The Spartans boldly elected to go for two once again, trying to tie the score, but Cousins' pass fell incomplete.
