College Football » Georgia runs past Buffalo.
First Published Sep 01 2012 02:15 pm • Last Updated Sep 04 2012 04:46 pm

ATHENS, Ga. • Freshman tailback Todd Gurley ran for three touchdowns, Aaron Murray threw three scoring passes and No. 6 Georgia overcame a sloppy first half to beat Buffalo 45-23 on Saturday.

Gurley didn’t start but may have emerged as the Bulldogs’ future at tailback with his eight carries for 100 yards, including scoring runs of 10 and 55 yards. He added a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the first quarter.

Georgia, which was favored by 37 1/2 points, led only 24-16 at halftime before pulling away in the season opener for both teams.

Another freshman tailback, Keith Marshall, had 10 carries for 46 yards, while starter Ken Malcome had six carries for 32 yards before hurting his left hand during the third quarter.

Branden Oliver, who was coming off his school-record 1,395 yards rushing in 2011, had 30 carries for 111 yards and a 2-yard touchdown run for the Bulls.
