NU defenders praise Georgia's star running back, but limit his damage
Georgia's Todd Gurley looked to have a path to the end zone on the Bulldogs' final possession, but Corey Cooper tackled him 3 yards short of a first down. Cornerback Josh Mitchell called it “pretty much the best play of the game.”

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Nebraska coach Bo Pelini didn't call Georgia running back Todd Gurley by his name after the Huskers' 24-19 Gator Bowl win, but there wasn't a reporter inside the press room who was confused about the object of Pelini's praise.
“Their back is a grown man,” Pelini said. “He's a heck of a football player.”
