Bulldogs top Rebels

    OXFORD, Miss.  — As the final seconds ticked off the clock, Georgia linebacker Cornelius Washington smacked aside a Mississippi offensive lineman and headed straight for the quarterback.
    He arrived in plenty of time, wrapping up Mississippi's Randall Mackey before slamming him to the turf for a loss of 17 yards.
    It was a fitting end to a dominant day for Georgia's defense.
    The Bulldogs held Ole Miss to just 183 total yards and a single offensive touchdown in a 27-13 victory on Saturday.
    "I thought our defense came out in the second half and played a dominant game," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "The defense finished this game extremely well. One play could have made it ugly and nasty for us, but our defense just didn't (allow) that."
    While Georgia's defense was thriving, the offense proved capable as well. Aaron Murray completed 17 of 26 passes for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Freshman Isaiah Crowell rushed for 147 yards on 30 carries, helping the Bulldogs (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) grind to the road victory. Malcolm Mitchell caught three passes for 93 yards as the Bulldogs gained 475 total yards.
    The Bulldogs jumped out to a 17-0 lead by midway through the second quarter.
