It's only the end of the first half, but with Florida ahead 14-3, karma appears to be working overtime for the Gators. Georgia had a chance to cut in the lead before the end of the first half, but the appropriately-named tight end Tripp Chandler slipped in the end zone to miss a potential wide-open touchdown catch. Knowshon Moreno followed with another gaffe, allowing a pretty touch pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford in the end zone to bounce off his facemask. Then, Georgia kicker Blair Walsh caromed a 27-yard field goal attempt off the left upright. The red zone has been the dread zone so far for the 'Dogs. Georgia has managed just three points in three trips inside the Florida 20. Meanwhile, Florida has cashed in with a pair of touchdowns on its two red zone trips. The Gators even received an assist from Georgia coach Mark Richt, who made a questionable call on an onsides kick attempt after the 'Dogs cut the lead to 7-3. Florida needed just 41 yards to march to its second touchdown drive after Butch Rowley scooped up the onsides attempt.
