The Mark Richt Victory Watch

On a soggy night in Sanford Stadium, the Georgia Bulldogs watched an early lead evaporate on a pair of turnovers, but the Red and Black battled back to tie the Arizona St. Sun Devils. In the closing minutes, the 'Dawgs blocked a field goal attempt by the visitors and drove the length of the field to split the uprights on a game-winning Blair Walsh three-pointer as time expired to claim a 20-17 triumph between the hedges.

The win, which was both exciting and more exciting than it should have been, gave the Georgia head coach his 85th career victory, placing Mark Richt 116 wins behind Vince Dooley on the all-time school list. After 108 games on the job, Mark Richt sports a ledger of 85-23 (.787), which outpaces the records of Wally Butts and Vince Dooley at the same juncture. Coach Butts was 79-26-3 (.745) and Coach Dooley was 71-32-5 (.681) after as many games.

Go 'Dawgs!
