SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - It has been a tough week for Georgia fans after the bulldogs lost for the second straight week on Saturday against Arkansas.

The Dogs nearly came out from behind to pull out a dramatic win. They were trailing by two touchdowns at the start of the fourth quater, the Bulldogs started making the plays they hadn't made for two weeks. Within 11 minutes they had tied the game.

And while the Dogs started playing better after coach Mark Richt gathered his players on the sideline before the fourth quater, a couple of Bulldogs from in the Coastal Empire also hepled trigger the comeback.

"Everybody came together, the leaders stepped up with Hakeem Dent, Justin Houston and Demarcus Dobbs talking on the sideline," said UGA safety Bacarri Rambo. "They started talking to us on the defensive side and we knew we had to step up and make plays and we started stopping them and stuff. What Coach Richt was doing got everybody pumped and motivated like we still had to fight, we still can win this game."

The Dogs are 1-2 overall and will be looking for their first SEC win this coming Saturday night against Mississippi State.
