sooby said: It's a grass. Is there any chance you can get a sharper and closer picture showing the detail where the blade emerges from the sheath (like the last pic above but closer to that part). If you lay the plant on a sheet of white paper it may help the camera to focus better. I can see some characteristics that may help ID it but not quite enough. Does the base of the plant seem flattish or rounded, and are the emerging new leaves folded more or less flat or are they rolled?
A rough idea of where you are located would also help. Obviously not a very cold winter climate since you have Bermuda grass. Edit - oops just saw the thread title again which answers that question.

Here's what I got when I checked for ligule on nut sedge:
Here it grows in with lawn grass and also spread to a garden of Japanese irises and has been impossible to eliminate although I have used a specific nut sedge killer.
It does look like the images on your google search of Ligule of any kind. Maybe because it only does so in the summer or spring and this didn't start to emerge until late september?
