Quarter by quarter: How Georgia won

October 24, 2010 

First quarter

Summary: After a sack resulted in a Mike Hartline fumble at the UK 34, Georgia scored in four plays. UK got a field goal, but Brandon Boykin then returned the kick 100 yards. UK failed to convert a fourth-and-inches at its 39.

Thumbs up: Hartline converted four third-and-long passes to set up a field goal.

Thumbs down: UK was dominated up front, rushing for -1 yard on 11 attempts.

Second quarter

Summary: UK continued its trend of getting into a deep hole. The failed first-quarter conversion on fourth down set up a Georgia score, and it was 21-3. Georgia scored again when UK turned it over at its own 5. A 71-yard TD drive kept UK's hopes alive.

Thumbs up: Back Raymond Sanders gave UK a spark with 56 all-purpose yards.

Thumbs down: Mistakes. UK outgained Georgia 200-96 but kept shooting itself in the foot.

Third quarter

Summary: Comeback hopes were diminished when Georgia opened the second half with a 70-yard TD drive. UK moved downfield, but Hartline was picked off in the end zone. A late drive ended in a nice TD catch by La'Rod King.

Thumbs up: Led by Hartline, UK moved the ball up and down the field.

Thumbs down: Despite moving the ball, UK barely cut into the lead.

Fourth quarter

Summary: Georgia sealed it when Washaun Ealey scored his fifth TD early in the quarter. Hartline kept a lot of fans in the stands with another impressive performance. He threw for 353 yards and four scores, but there were no late-game heroics this week.

Thumbs up: The weather was spectacular.

Thumbs down: Ealey became the fourth player to score four or more TDs against UK.
