UGA spewed second-quarter oil between and over the hedges

With five minutes left in the first half, Georgia held a comfortable 27-10 lead over what appeared to be a completed overmatched and outmanned Tennessee squad.

Four minutes later, the Vols took the lead and headed toward halftime... wait, what?

That’s right, in a span of 4:10, the Vols scored three touchdowns to take a 30-27 lead with under a minute left in the half. A pair of UGA turnovers greatly aided UT’s comeback efforts, with an Aaron Murray fumble leading to the second TD in that span and a Keith Marshall fumble leading to the third.

A Bulldogs field goal with no time left in the second quarter tied the game at 30 in what was the SEC’s answer to the Big 12.

UT, incidentally, will receive the second-half kickoff, 30 minutes away from upsetting the No. 5 team in the country.
