Eric Berry, Tennessee’s All-America safety, is one of those players we’d all pay to see play.

But who would Berry pay to see?

Four or five guys come to mind immediately, but first on his list is Georgia Tech safety Morgan Burnett.

“We’ve been going at it since high school,” said Berry, who played in the Atlanta area along with Burnett.

One of Berry’s favorite hitters in college football is Florida safety Major Wright.

Who’s the better hitter of the two?

“That’s a good one,” said Berry, flashing his trademark smile.

The other two guys Berry loves watching are Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant.

Georgia's defense hangs in there

Take away one big pass play to Dez Bryant, and Georgia's defense has played about as well as you could expect in the first half against Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys lead 10-7, but the Bulldogs stood their ground in the final seconds in what was a huge goal-line stand. Oklahoma State had a first-and-goal at the 6 after recovering Carlton Thomas' fumble at the 11, but had to settle for a field goal.

The Bulldogs went for it on fourth-and-goal from the 1, but were pushed back because of a holding penalty.

Bryant does have the 46-yard touchdown catch, but Georgia has limited Kendall Hunter to 32 yards rushing on 11 carries in the first half.

It looks like Willie Martinez's defense has come to play.
