UGA Beats Bama in Overtime Thriller

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) _ Mikey Henderson caught a 25-yard
touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford in overtime to lift Number 22
Georgia to a 26-to-23 victory over Number 16 Alabama Saturday night.
The Crimson Tide started overtime with the ball but failed to
gain a yard and Leigh Tiffin put Alabama ahead with a 42-yard field
goal.
The Bulldogs (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) needed one play
to win it.
Stafford lofted a pass to the left side of the end zone for
Henderson, who made an over-the-shoulder catch and ended the Tide's
hopes of a second straight dramatic victory.
It was Henderson's first career touchdown catch, and it was a
big one for a team that was flirting with its first 0-and-2 SEC
start since 1993.
The Tide had rallied to beat Arkansas 41-to-38 last week on John
Parker Wilson's touchdown pass to Matt Caddell with 8 seconds left,
the team's first fourth-quarter comeback win since the 2004
Independence Bowl.
This one might have been even more improbable if Alabama could
have pulled it off after scoring 10 points in the final 6:30 to
force overtime.
