Marshall Morgan kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime after No. 6 Georgia scored a tying touchdown with 5 seconds left in regulation as the Bulldogs overcame numerous injuries and beat Tennessee 34-31 on Saturday.

Tennessee's Alton "Pig" Howard capped the first overtime possession by losing control of the ball as he dove toward the front corner of the end zone. Howard's play was initially ruled a 7-yard touchdown, but replays showed he fumbled prior to crossing the goal line, turning the potential score into a turnover and touchback.

Georgia (4-1, 3-0 SEC) forced overtime on Aaron Murray's 2-yard touchdown pass to Rantavious Wooten to make it 31-all. Rajion Neal's 7-yard run had put Tennessee (3-2, 0-1) ahead 31-24 with 1:54 left.

Georgia running back Keith Marshall injured his right knee in the first quarter. Receivers Michael Bennett and Justin Scott-Wesley and punter Colin Barber also were injured.
