Dawgs Roll: How they scored

ATHENS - A review of the scoring in each quarter of Georgia's win over ULM.

First quarter

The moment: The first score for Georgia was the one that would matter most, and it came when D.J. Shockley faked a handoff to Danny Ware and broke around the left corner for an easy 28-yard score.

Key stat: There were six penalties in the quarter, four for 44 yards for

Georgia and two for 10 yards for Louisiana-Monroe.

The man: Tight end Martrez Milner, starting in place of Leonard Pope, caught two passes for 40 yards and a touchdown.

The score: Georgia14,ULM 0

-Second quarter

The moment: There wasn't one. Georgia stumbled and bumbled through most of the half, missing a field goal, fumbling after a long gain and picking up four more penalties.

Key stat: Coutu was 1-for-2 on field goal attempts in the quarter. He hit a 40-yard kick, but missed for the first time this season on a 31-yarder late in the half.

The man: Georgia long snapper Brian Jordan recovered a ULM fumble on a punt return, eventually leading to Coutu’s 40-yard field goal.

The score: Georgia 17, ULM 0

Third quarter

The moment: ULM kicker Joel Stelly opened the second half with an onside kick that no one saw coming. The ball bounced in front of him and behind his blocking wall for 12 yards, then Stelly simply fell on the ball at the ULM 47. The Indians then drove 53 yards in 11 plays to cut the Bulldogs' lead to 10.

Key stat: Ware gained 40 yards on four carries in the quarter and broke the 100-yard mark for the first time this season.

The man: Georgia defensive end Charles Johnson, a Hawkinsville native, recovered a fumble by ULM quarterback Steven Jyles in the end zone for touchdown. It was Johnson's first career score, and the ninth defensive touchdown since Mark Richt took over at UGA.

The score: Georgia 34, ULM 7

-Fourth quarter

The moment: Coutu redeemed his earlier miss with a 58-yard field goal with just more than five minutes to play. His kick was the third-longest in Georgia history.

Key stat: Georgia rushed for 100 yards on 10 carries in the final quarter, primarily using backups Tyson Browning, Jason Johnson and Christopher Burgett.

The man: It was Coutu's spotlight, but backup quarterback Joe Tereshinski III was quietly effective, completing 3 of 4 passes for 17 yards.

The score: Georgia 44, ULM 7
