How can I get rid of this weed in my Bermuda lawn?

I have a Bermuda lawn - probably a hybrid of some sort, not sure. I live in GA and with all the rain I haven't been able to cut like I normally do. Anyhow, I had these grassy weeds start popping up all over the yard last week.

Anyone know what I can do for this particular kind of weed?

Thanks in advance. Sorry for the bad pictures - cell phone.

Get something for nut grass. That is what it is

Nutgrass is actually Nutsedge, not a grass at all. There are two kinds that predominate in Georgia, purple and yellow. Preliminary opinion from the pic is that you have yellow, in most ways the easier to control. Generally speaking, it doesn't compete well with other plants once the other plants get the opportunity to establish themselves. Regular mowing will allow your bermuda to thrive better, and likely dominate the nutsedge to the point it is suppressed beyond notice. There are some chemical control options.

Thanks guys.

I've done some research, and you guys appear to be spot-on about it being nutsedge! From what I can gather, these weeds typically show in very wet conditions and do not tolerate frequent mowings - matches my current situation exactly.

I'm tempted to put down some chemicals, but I think I'll just wait until it drys out and I can start mowing my lawn twice a week. Hoping that will do it.
