TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Mikey Henderson and the Georgia Bulldogs weren't going to drop the ball again.
Frustrated by missed chances in a loss to South Carolina two weeks earlier, the 15th-ranked Bulldogs' young offense came through this time in a 26-23 overtime win over No. 22 Alabama.
Matthew Stafford's 25-yard touchdown pass to Henderson on Georgia's first offensive play in overtime ensured that this wouldn't be another game that got away.
A few balls slipped out of receivers' hands in this one, too, but none that cost them the game.
Georgia improved to 3-1 and 1-1 in the Southeastern Conference.
Tide coach Nick Saban said his fears of a lackluster start following a dramatic win over Arkansas proved true.
The Bulldogs jumped out 10-0 and dominated most of the first half, with Stafford picking Alabama apart with a short passing game that didn't give the defense time to mount a pass rush
