Georgia beats Boise St: How they scored

ATHENS - A recap of the scoring in Georgia's first win of the season.

First quarter

Key moment: Tony Taylor's interception of Jared Zabransky on the game's first play gave the Bulldogs great field position and took immediate pressure off UGA quarterback D.J. Shockley.

Key statistic: Boise State turned it over three times, and Georgia scored touchdowns after two of them.

The man: Shockley was smooth with his feet and arm, running for 36 yards on three tries and suffering some dropped passes, but still completing two for 45 yards and a touchdown.

Score: Georgia 14-0

Second quarter

Key moment: It became any time Zabransky went back to pass, for he threw two interceptions and fumbled twice. Key statistic: Boise State had one more first down than Georgia, but 72 fewer yards and 24 fewer points.

The man: Defensive coordinator Willie Martinez's plan continued to stuff and discombobulate a Boise State offense that was touted, but wound up accomplishing little.

Score: Georgia 24-0

Third quarter

Key moment: Any thoughts that halftime might've slowed the Bulldogs were dispelled when tight end Martrez Milner showed speed in finishing off a 56-yard touchdown catch-and-run on the third play of the quarter.

Key statistic: Shockley and the Bulldogs offense toyed with BSU, the senior QB going 9-for-10 for 179 yards with three TDs in the quarter.

The man: Shockley, who completed passes in the quarter to Bryan McLendon, Sean Bailey, Leonard Pope, T.J. Gartrell and Milner in the period.

Score: Georgia 45-7.

Fourth quarter

Key moment: Joe Tereshinski's 41-yard pass to Milner to open the quarter showed that the Bulldog backups were as ready to play as the starters.

Key statistic: Tereshinski completed 4 of 7 for 90 yards in his first extended action at quarterback.

The man: True freshman wideout Mohamaed Massaquoi battled a hamstring problem most of August, yet caught two passes for 47 yards on one drive.

Score: Georgia 48-13.
