ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart preaches that his players should make the most of their opportunities when they get into games, and tailback Prather Hudson certainly took that to heart.
The Bulldogs scored plenty of points in the 66-27 win over UMass last Saturday, leading to Hudson getting his opportunity to try to score.
Hudson was forced out of bounds and into SEC Network reporter and former Miss Florida (2012) Laura Rutledge, knocking her down.

UMass player Josiah Johnson, who was locked up with Hudson when the out-of-bounds contact ensued, took credit for being the Georgia back’s “wing man.”
