Georgia controlled Purdue on both sides of the ball. The Boilermakers
lost starting QB Kyle Orton on a sack after they made their initial
first down, putting former safety Kyle Smith in charge. Georgia's
offense finally stalled, ending the quarter with a sack to stymie a
promising drive that was earlier halted by a holding penalty after a
good pass from David Greene to Ben Watson.
Key stat: Purdue ran the ball four times
and lost 12 yards.
G: Fred Gibson 6 pass from Greene (Billy Bennett kick), 10:29. Drive: 9
plays, 68 yards, 4:31. Key plays: Reggie Brown 12 pass from Greene on

Georgia 14, Purdue 0
The Bulldogs slowed down, but only a little and went up 24-0. Sparked
by the return of Orton, Purdue put up 10 points on consecutive
possessions, and Georgia continued slowing down on both sides of the
ball, hurt by some health issues on offense.
Key stat: Georgia had 306 yards of total offense on 44 plays compared
to 70 on 25 for Purdue.
G: Bennett 28 field goal 9:56. Drive: 8 plays, 63 yards, 3:01. Key

Georgia 24, Purdue 10
This was the time to flip channels or hit the concession stands, for
neither offense did much. Georgia blundered a 20-yard pass play with a
15-yard unsportsmanlike call, and a 16-yard gain with an offensive pass
Key stat: The teams managed all of four first downs out of 27 plays
Purdue's offense clicked and Georgia's defense clanked, the
Boilermakers getting a lot done in a short period of time. They used all
of 2:48 to do it. Georgia's offense resumed its first-quarter efficiency
with a field goal drive for a 10-point lead, but the defense spent much
of the quarter on its heels.
Key stat: Purdue ran two fewer plays yet had more than twice Georgia's
P: Orton 2 run (Jones kick), 9:11. Drive: 6 plays, 68 yards, 1:53. Key
plays: Stubblefield caught consecutive passes of 12, 6, 14, and 38
Georgia 24, Purdue 17

plays: Lumpkin fumble on second play, returned to UGA 34; Standeford 7
pass from Orton.
Georgia 27, Purdue 27
Purdue won the toss and chose defense, so Georgia took over on offense
going into the Bulldogs crowd and band. Georgia was the beneficiary of a
pass interference call that should've been defensive holding. Then, the
Bulldogs made it dramatic by getting little on the ground from inside
the 3-yard line until the game-winner.
G: Lumpkin 1 run (Bennett kick). Drive: 5 plays, 25 yards, no time. Key
plays: Gibson 7 pass from Greene.
