SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Joe Cox threw two touchdown passes, Caleb
King added two rushing scores and Georgia beat mistake-prone Texas
A&M 44-20 on Monday in the Independence Bowl.

Cox hit Aron White on touchdown passes of 24 and 2 yards in the
second half as the Bulldogs (8-5) pulled away for their fourth
straight bowl victory. It was the fourth straight postseason loss
for the Aggies (6-7), who have not won a bowl since 2001.

Georgia blocked two kicks, Brandon Boykin tied the Southeastern
Conference record with his third kickoff return of the season and
Cox threw his first touchdown pass after the snap sailed over the
Texas A&M punter's head in the third quarter.

The Bulldogs sealed the win by intercepting Jerrod Johnson twice
in the third quarter.

White tied the Independence Bowl record for touchdown
receptions, sharing it with four others.
