Gametime 2011 – New Mexico State at Georgia
On Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs (6-2, 5-1 SEC) return to Athens to host the New Mexico State Aggies. The game will be televised by CSS at 12:30 p.m. ET.
Georgia is coming off of a big 24-20 win over the Florida Gators in Jacksonville. New Mexico State (3-5, 1-3 WAC) has lost consecutive games at Hawaii (45-34) and home against Nevada (48-34).
It should be an interesting game on offense for the Dawgs. On Tuesday, running backs Isaiah Crowell, Carlton Thomas and Ken Malcome were each suspended for the game Saturday for a “violation of team policies.” Walk-on Brandon Harton, who has 11 carries for 34 yards this year, will be the likely starter at tailback.
Georgia leads the overall series against New Mexico State. The Bulldogs beat the Aggies 40-13 in 1995, 37-0 in 2000 and 41-10 in 2002.
