ATHENS, Ga. - The Georgia Bulldogs have been racking up their share of offensive numbers in recent seasons, and today was no different.

On a gorgeous afternoon at Sanford Stadium, Georgia's first-team offense got the better of the first-team defense as the Red topped the Black 27-24 before an announced G-Day record crowd of 46,073. Leading the way for the Red was fifth-year senior quarterback Hutson Mason, who completed 18 of 27 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown.

Mason's favorite receivers were fellow seniors Michael Bennett and Chris Conley, who combined on 11 receptions for 171 yards.

"It was a great day," Bennett said. "When we had our guys in there, we were really just clicking on all cylinders. We really threw the ball a ton, which was kind of tiring us out, because we only had four receivers on the Red team and Conley was a little-banged up.

"You're going to be tired in a game, so it was good work in that way, too."

The Red team, which consisted of the starting offense and the second-team defense, amassed 261 yards in the first half.
