Sam McKewon and Rich Kaipust break down the big plays of the game, quarter by quarter.
* * *
Keith Marshall: One of Georgia's two dynamic freshman backs catches a 21-yard screen pass on the Bulldogs' first third down of the game.
P.J. Smith: Watching Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray all the way, he ducks under a poorly thrown pass near the NU goal line and makes the interception.
Shawn Williams: After the Huskers' first drive stalls, Georgia's safety blocks Brett Maher's punt. The ball goes into Nebraska's end zone, but the Bulldogs are unable to recover the ball before it rolls out of bounds.
Murray: On third-and-8, he hits Justin Scott-Wesley for a 24-yard gain and a first down.
Arthur Lynch: Georgia's tight end is wide open thanks to a blown Husker coverage. Murray hits him in stride and Lynch runs in for a touchdown.
Rex Burkhead: The Husker running back bolts for 21 yards on NU's next drive. He then catches a 16-yard shuttle pass.
Taylor Martinez: Beating the play clock by a nanosecond — if that — he throws a perfect pass to Jamal Turner for a 14-yard touchdown.
Will Compton: The Husker linebacker sniffs out a screen, picks off Murray's pass and returns it 24 yards for a touchdown.
Tavarres King: NU's lead lasts one play. The Georgia wide receiver catches a 75-yard touchdown pass.
Ben Cotton: The NU tight end catches a 56-yard pass from Martinez. But Nebraska is unable to convert the big play into points, as Brett Maher misses a 47-yard field goal.

Damian Swann: The Georgia cornerback steps in front of an ill-advised Martinez pass, intercepting the ball and returning it into Nebraska territory.
Murray: On third down, he scrambles for a 10-yard gain. It prolongs the Bulldogs' drive.
Todd Gurley: The other Georgia freshman running back takes a snap out of the Wildcat and runs 24 yards for a touchdown. Georgia leads 23-14.
Burkhead: Rumbles 19 yards and is pushed while out of bounds, leading to a late hit call. Nebraska's down to the Bulldog 19.
Tim Beck: Burkhead exits, and Nebraska's offensive coordinator calls three straight passing plays. Martinez can't complete any of them. The Huskers settle for a Brett Maher field goal.
Mark Richt: Although his offense is averaging 6.5 yards per rush, he chooses not to go for a fourth-and-1 at midfield.
Burkhead: Gains 13 yards on three straight carries.
Kenny Bell: The Husker receiver runs under a floated Martinez pass to haul in a 35-yard gain. Martinez, blitzed severely, threw the ball blind.
Burkhead: Makes a leaping 16-yard catch for a touchdown and the Nebraska lead. This is the Burkhead fans hoped they'd see all year.
Gurley: Runs for 19 and 24 yards on the Bulldogs' next drive, but Georgia can't make a field goal. After a full buffet of plays in the first half, Nebraska leads 24-23.
* * *
Martinez: Hits Bell for an 11-yard pass, then scrambles for 9 yards on a third-and-4 to help Nebraska reach midfield.
Ameer Abdullah: Dashes through Georgia's defense for a 26-yard gain. Abdullah's flashiest run of the year.
Burkhead: Finishes off the Huskers' touchdown drive with three straight runs. On the last of them, he plunges into the end zone from 2 yards out. Nebraska leads 31-23.
Gurley: Runs for 19 yards on three straight carries.
King: On third-and-4, he gets open and catches an 11-yard pass.
Murray: With all the time to throw, he pumps once and heaves a 49-yard touchdown pass to Chris Conley running a go route. Murray then hits Rhett McGowan for a 2-point conversion, tying the game at 31.
Burkhead: Busts off a 28-yard run to start NU's next drive.
Beck: On third-and-1 at Georgia's 39-yard line, he calls for Burkhead to take the snap and pitch the ball to Abdullah.
Abdullah: He gets the first down, but fumbles. Georgia recovers.
Murray: Completes a 31-yard pass to Scott-Wesley to move into Nebraska territory. Georgia starts the fourth quarter at the Huskers' 24.
* * *
Murray: The Georgia quarterback chalks up his fourth TD pass to start the fourth, hitting Marshall with a 24-yard throw. The Bulldogs reclaim the lead at 38-31.
Conley: Georgia catches the Huskers in a blitz, Murray connects with Conley and nobody is in the middle of the field to stop him. The pass play covers 87 yards, breaks a Capital One Bowl record and puts the Bulldogs ahead 45-31 with 11:03 to go.
Swann: The Georgia cornerback gets his second interception of the game after Nebraska has a first down at the Bulldogs' 36. It's the fourth straight Husker possession that doesn't result in points.
Murray: Georgia is back in NU territory, but Murray just misses King on a fourth-down throw to the end zone with 2:33 to go. Murray will finish with 427 yards passing and five TDs.
Alec Ogletree: Nebraska's last threat ends around midfield, with Ogletree breaking through and sacking Martinez with 1:08 left in the game.
