Good defense and two lucky plays on offense help UGA get by Tennessee, 33-18 Despite a 6-2 turnover margin, Georgia's offense was so bad at times that this game should have been tied right down to the end. It was a pair of extremely fortunate offensive plays that allowed Georgia to win this game pretty comfortably at the end. Early in the game was a defensive battle and both teams had to punt. Then the UT QB was hit while throwing and FS Joe Forte picked off the pass and returned it 33 yards for a TD and a 7-0 lead. The defenses continued to play well especially near the goal line as Tennessee was turned away twice and had to kick field goals, 7-6. Then the first lucky play. Brian Clark dropped back and threw a duck, well away from his intended target downfield. I user grabbed the WRONG receiver, went for the pass, and the D didn't react at all. Easy TD. Huge lucky play. 14-6 Each team kicked a field goal to go into halftime with UGA clinging to a 17-9 lead. We got the ball back in the first half but threw an interception on a bad read and a GREAT play by the UT CB. Tennessee kicked a field goal, then forced us to punt and scored a touchdown (missed 2 pt), taking an 18-7 lead thanks to good defense and an offense that was finally clicking. Then the second lucky play happened. FB Bryan West caught a pass on an out route in the flat, and Rusty just screwed up, something you'd expect to see him do once in a hundred games, and somehow took both of his guys out of the play. The surprisingly fast West went 48 yards on the play for a TD (missed 2 pt) and we had the lead again, 23-18. Then our defense just took over. They were good all day but dominant in the fourth quarter, Jake Holland picked off a pass and returned it 21 yards for a 30-18 lead then we kicked a field goal late in the game for the final score of 33-18. In all we picked off Tennessee 6 times, and gave it away just twice... But it probably should have been 19-18 or 20-18 in the closing minutes due to those two lucky plays on offense. GG Russ.
