Georgia was on a mission to destroy UMass on Saturday and it turned out nobody was safe. The Bulldogs handed them a 66-27 loss.
Also caught in Georgia’s destructive path was sideline reporter Laura Rutledge. She was dragged pregame by the team’s mascot then took a shot in the back on the sideline during the game.
Took an L in Athens today. So many thanks to everyone at @UGAAthletics for their help after this happened…even though I’m a Gator 😏 pic.twitter.com/b1FTCPaqtH

Credit to Laura for popping right back up from the big hit. She might not have felt the hit immediately, but we can guarantee she does on Sunday.
Maybe the next time Laura covers a Georgia game she’ll put on some pads. You don’t want to take too many of these shots if you don’t have to.
