JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Todd Gurley scored twice in his first game in more than a month, helping Georgia beat rival Florida 23-20 on Saturday.

Gurley returned from an ankle injury and totaled 187 yards, finding the end zone on a 5-yard run and a 73-yard reception. The Bulldogs scored on their first four possessions, taking a 20-0 lead that looked as if it would be enough against one of the Southeastern Conference's most anemic offenses. 

But the Gators rallied, taking advantage of a fumble, a safety and some questionable play calls to seize momentum in a weird, wacky and chippy game.

Florida cut it to 23-20 early in the fourth, putting Georgia (5-3, 4-2 SEC) on its heels after a failed fourth-down run followed by a huge defensive penalty. But the Gators (4-4, 3-3) faltered down the stretch.
