    1985 Bama / Georgia Game

    Anyone remember this one? I had just moved to Georgia and was only in school there two weeks. Had several people of course ask me where I was from. I told them Mobile, AL ... of course they reminded me how stupid I was and that sort of thing. Also, how UGA was going to beat Bama on opening night. Funny for me to see their faces the next morning.

    The final minute had a textbook punt by UGA and a TD by them for it, but Shula was the man that night.

    Thanks for this. It reminds me of the perfect drive at the LSU game.

    Indeed it was very similar

    Nice trip back in time. Remember the TD play but forgot how the last minute or so transpired. Thanks for posting!

    That was a great drive but there was another "drive" later in the '85 season that was even better

    You must be referring to The Kick ;-)

    The LSU drive reminded me of that drive. They were almost identical.

    I was at that game, and I was so mad at Perkins after that I could have chewed nails. I thought that Bama could have been doing that all night. Mike had thrown only 8 passes to that point, and now was being asked to move the ball 70 yards by....throwing passes! However, it turned out to be great practice for the barn game that year.

    I was also at that game, one of the most exciting endings I've seen. I was sitting in the endzone and had a perfect view of the touchdown pass from Shula to Bell. I was in the middle of UGA fans and had their shakers in my face when UGA scored off the blocked kick. Didn't take long for our comeback and I had the last guffaw. Lots of sad UGA fans... I hope they are sad again Saturday.

    I remember it well. How sweet it was after falling behind what appeared to be a big Georgia comeback.

    Al Bell is still one of our unsung heroes. Wonder what become of him????

    I was a young teenager and everyone in my house had left to go somewhere that night and i stayed home to watch the game all by myself.

    I could have bit nails when they blocked that kick, i still remember how mad i got, almost punched a hole in the wall.

    But, it didn't take long for the Al Bell touchdown, great finish.

    I remember watching that game from my home in Montgomery (many moves ago). When UGA scored on the blocked kick, I remember thinking back to the 5-6 '84 season that "here we go again".
