Florida vs. Georgia score: Gators enter halftime trailing 7-6

The No. 2 Florida Gators enter halftime trailing their SEC East rival Georgia Bulldogs, the No. 10 team in the nation, by the score of 7-6 at Everbank Field.

After being held scoreless in the first quarter by the Georgia defense, the Gators were able to score 6 in the second quarter thanks to a pair of successful field goals by kicker Caleb Sturgis.

After forcing Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray into throwing his third interception of the game, the undefeated Gators had an opportunity to enter halftime with a lead. However, a poor snap in the shotgun caused some confusion and quarterback Jeff Driskel was unable to hit a wide-open Trey Burton in the end zone.

It looked as if the Gators would enter halftime with a lead after the team found itself on the Georgia 5-yard line. But another miscue by Jeff Driskel, this time an interception, gave Georgia the ball back and the lead at halftime.

As expected, it has been a game dominated by both teams' defensive units, which have played extremely stout defense and made it a long first half for both quarterbacks. In fact, each team has forced three turnovers.
