2013 Capital One Bowl score update: Nebraska leads Georgia at halftime, 24-23

USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: Georgia beat Nebraska, with Aaron Murray breaking a Capital One Bowl record.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers hold a 24-23 halftime lead over the Georgia Bulldogs in the 2013 Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla.

The Cornhuskers and Bulldogs combined for 576 yards of total offense in the opening half, with both teams racking up big-time yardage through the air. Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez completed 11-of-15 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns, while Georgia's Aaron Murray worked around two interceptions to throw for 195 yards and a pair of scores.

Georgia had a shot to put pressure on Nebraska early in the opening quarter when Shawn Williams broke through the line and blocked Brett Maher's punt. However, the Bulldogs failed to fall on the loose ball for a touchdown, instead knocking it out of the back of the end zone and settling for a safety. The ensuing touchdown pass from Murray to Arthur Lynch gave Georgia a 9-0 advantage, which was quickly erased on a Martinez passing touchdown and an interception returned for a score within 27 seconds of each other later in the first quarter.

Nebraska will receive the football at the start of the second half.
