Athens, GA (SportsNetwork.com) – Sony Michel ran for 155 yards with three
touchdowns and Hutson Mason threw for a pair of scores, as 13th-ranked Georgia
bounced back from last week’s tough loss at South Carolina and cruised to a
66-0 victory over Troy.
Michel, a true freshman, averaged 15.5 yards on just 10 carries. He took over
at tailback after Todd Gurley played the first two series. Gurley ran for 73
yards on six attempts, part of Georgia’s 367-yard effort on the ground.
The Bulldogs (2-1), after the 38-35 loss last week in Columbia, outgained the
Trojans 547-212 overall. Mason finished 8-of-12 for 97 yards through the air,
while Isaiah McKenzie returned a punt for a touchdown in the lopsided victory.
Dontreal Pruitt, making his first start at quarterback in place of Brandon
Silvers, threw for 158 yards with an interception for Troy (0-4), which
wrapped up its non-conference schedule and will open Sun Belt play next
Saturday at Louisiana-Monroe.
