Georgia holds on to beat Georgia Tech

Georgia linebacker Justin Houston (42) celebrates with teammates Saturday in Athens, Ga.

    ATHENS, Ga. — Aaron Murray threw for three touchdowns, Justin Houston returned a fumble 18 yards for a score and Georgia Tech missed a tying extra point, giving Georgia the win it needed to be eligible for a bowl, a 42-34 victory over the Yellow Jackets on Saturday night. This one was a comedy of errors that surely wasn't very funny for the fans of either team, both finishing disappointing seasons. But Georgia (6-6) held on to beat its state rival for the second year in a row, benefiting from a rare miscue by one of Georgia Tech's most reliable players.
    The Yellow Jackets (6-6) were poised to tie the game at 35 after Anthony Allen bulled into the end zone with 4:57 remaining. But Scott Blair yanked the extra point wide left, and Georgia added an uncontested TD.
