AUBURN - Josh Kendall reviews Georgia's scoring against Auburn.

FIRST QUARTER:

Key moment: Matthew Stafford found wide receiver A.J. Bryant for a 53-yard gain, Georgia’s longest play from scrimmage this season, to set up the Bulldogs’ first score, which came one play later.

Key stat: Georgia outgained the Tigers 112-19 in the first 15 minutes and won the time of possession 8:31-6:29.

The man: Bryant’s one catch of the quarter constituted his second best game of the season. The Tennessee game, two catches for 62 yards, is the only time he’s had more yards.

The score: Georgia 7, Auburn 0

SECOND QUARTER:

Key moment: Stafford completed a screen pass that Kregg Lumpkin took 14 yards, breaking a Will Herring tackle on the way, for a touchdown with 29 seconds left in the half.

Key stat: Auburn quarterback Brandon Cox had completed just two passes for 7 yards in the first half.

The man: Battle made two interceptions in the quarter. The last time a Bulldog had two interceptions in a game was 2003, when Sean Jones did it. Battle had three interceptions by halftime.

The score: Georgia 30, Auburn 7.

THIRD QUARTER:

Key moment: Cornerback Paul Oliver intercepted a fourth Cox pass on Auburn’s second drive of the second half, further throwing water on any hopes the Tigers had of a comeback.

Key stat: Georgia fumbled the ball away, once by Kregg Lumpkin and once by Stafford, on each of its first two series of the half or the game could have been a bigger blowout.

The man: Tight end Martrez Milner caught two passes for 36 yards, including a 26-yarder to start off a touchdown drive that put Georgia ahead 37-15.

The score: Georgia 30, Auburn 15

FOURTH QUARTER:

Key moment: Stafford rushed 9 yards on a quarterback draw to answer an Auburn touchdown and put the Bulldogs ahead 37-15 with 12:28 left in the game.

Key stat: Auburn had minus-3 yards in the fourth quarter.

The man: Lumpkin had 59 rushing yards in the fourth quarter to help run out the clock.

The score: Georgia 37, Auburn 15
