Georgia receiver back making big plays

Posted: Updated:

Athens - The Georgia offense has been very productive in their last three games. 

The Bulldogs have scored more than 40 points and compiled more than 400 yards in total offense for three consecutive games.

Games that included two of their biggest rivals in Florida and Auburn.

One of the big playmakers on offense has been senior receiver Sean Bailey.

In his last three games, Bailey has caught 12 passes, two for touchdowns.

Bailey's 44-yard catch in the third quarter Saturday started the Bulldogs 28-0 second half run to beat Auburn.

It is a big comeback for Bailey.

He averaged more than 20 yards a reception his junior year.

That junior season was in 2005 when Bailey suffered a knee injury during practice for the Bulldogs Sugar Bowl game with West Virginia.

He watched the 2006 season from the sideilnes and worked hard in his recovery to get back on the field in this season.

Sean Bailey said "I visualize things like this. Playing in big games and being able to come back. I worked my butt off and it has paid off. I think I have come out and contribute and help this team win."

Georgia center Fernando Velasco is the SEC's offensive lineman of the week.

Georgia also announced the Georgia Tech game in Atlanta November 24th is a 3:30 p.m. kick on ABC regional television.
