Georgia moved the ball, but stymied itself with three penalties for 25
yards on one drive. Auburn's offense was fairly open but couldn't get
anything going, and Odell Thurman had a good quarter on defense, coming
up with two big pops on one punt-forcing drive. Georgia ended the
quarter with a nice trip, but faced a 3rd-and-goal at the one as time
Key stat: The Bulldogs ran three times as many as Auburn (21-7) and
7.4 times as many yards in offense (119-16).
G: Billy Bennett 47 field goal, 5:23. Drive: 13 plays, 36 yards, 7:26.
Key plays: Reggie Brown 17 on first-play end around; Fred Gibson 10 pass
from David Greene; Georgia holding penalty; Brown 21 on sideline pass
from Greene; Cooper minus 2 run; Georgia holding penalty on Greene run;
Greene recovers high shotgun snap for loss of three; Greene sacked for
Georgia 3, Auburn 0
And the red zone woes continued with a bad Greene pass - on an
interesting call out of a unique formation - from the one that was
almost intercepted in the end zone. Not that it mattered as Auburn
mustered only its second first down of the game more than halfway
through the quarter. The Tigers offered some interesting time management
at the end before trying a 59-yard field goal that was short.
Key stat: Auburn's run-oriented offense ran the ball only eight times
- for nine yards, while Jason Campbell tried twice as many passes, his
16 attempts more than his total for two games and only two short of his
total in three others.
G: Bennett 18 field goal, 14:51. Key plays: Michael Johnson catches back-to-back passes for 27 yards; Johnson
24 pass from Greene on

plays, 59 yards, 34 seconds. Key plays: Gibson 40 pass from Johnson on
Georgia 13, Auburn 0
Auburn's offense showed some life after taking over at Georgia's 48
only to miss a field goal. The Bulldogs all but finished Auburn off by
taking over and going 80 yards for a score. The defense, keyed by a Greg Blue stick on an incomplete pass, continued to dominate.
Key stat: Georgia, the second-most penalized team in the SEC, got
through the third with only one flag for eight yards.
G: Kregg Lumpkin 16 run (kick failed), 5:06. Drive: 12 plays, 80
yards, 5:30. Key plays: Mario Raley 16 pass from Greene; Cooper 10 run;
