What they said after Georgia’s win over Florida Atlantic

“We really challenged our guys to go back to work. There was a lot of patting on the back about how great we did in the second half [at Missouri]. They responded with great practices during the week and came out and played well. The effort was outstanding, and when they had an opportunity to make plays they made them.”

- Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo on Georgia’s school-record 713-yard output vs. Florida Atlantic

“I was pretty upset about that interception. I felt like I had probably one of my most complete games I’ve had since I’ve been here, and that kind of stunk to finish the game like that.”

- Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, who completed 14 of 19 passes for a career-high 342 yards and accounted for four touchdowns (two passing, two rushing) but threw an interception in the end zone on his last play of the night with about three minutes left in the third quarter

“I was concerned, yeah. They were legitimately taking that ball and moving it right down the field.”

- Georgia coach Mark Richt on Florida Atlantic’s offense in the first half, when the Owls had 263 yards and touchdown drives of 57 and 87 yards

“We came in at halftime and regrouped and were back playing the kind of defense we are used to in the second half.”

- Nose guard John Jenkins after Georgia held FAU to 55 yards in the second half

“First half, [FAU was] eight out of 12 on third-down conversions. That’s pretty strong. We got them to third down but couldn’t get off the field. Guys like Jarvis can get you off the field – obviously we’ve seen that with him – so I think [not having him] affected us. If Jarvis had played, I think we’d have been more productive when it came to pressuring the passer.”

- Richt on the absence of outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, who didn’t play because of a strained groin muscle

“We came out pretty sharp in the first half, and we really played well against a good SEC team. But the second half was a completely different ballgame.”

- Florida Atlantic quarterback Graham Wilbert, whose team trailed 28-14 at halftime and was outscored 21-0 in the third quarter
