Tennessee Week: Three Keys Revisited

ATHENS - Josh Kendall reviews Georgia's three keys in its game against Tennessee.

Score early

Twenty-four points in the first 26 minutes of the game should have been enough to get the offense going, but it wasn’t. Georgia scored just nine points in the second half and six of those came on a kickoff return for a touchdown. The Bulldogs’ offense also turned the ball over four times in the second half, twice inside their own 40-yard line.

Get a turnover

Among the defense’s many failings was it didn’t get any takeaways. Tennessee fumbled one snap deep in its own territory, but Georgia couldn’t recover the ball.

Make a play on special teams

Not only did Georgia make one, it made two. The Bulldogs had an 86-yard punt return for a touchdown (Mikey Henderson) and a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown (Thomas Brown), and it still wasn’t enough. The last time Georgia returned a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown in the same game was in 1990 against Kentucky, and the Bulldogs lost that game as well.
