Capping an eight-play, 56-yard drive that followed Walker's firt-quarter interception, Crompton hit Gerald Jones
with a six-yard touchdown pass for a 7-0 lead. Tennessee's lead lasted just 14 seconds, as Brandon Boykin
took the ensuing kickoff and raced 100 yards to tie the score. Tennessee answered three plays later, however, when Crompton threw a short pass to Denarius Moore
, who broke a tackle and sped 33 yards to paydirt for a 14-7 lead. UGA's Blair Walsh
narrowed the gap to 14-10 with a 52-yard field goal but UT answered with a 74-yard scoring drive, capped by a five-yard Crompton strike to freshman Marsalis Teague
for a 21-10 lead. Georgia's Zach Renner blocked a Chad Cunningham
punt through the back of the end zone with just 23 seconds left to intermission, giving Georgia a safety that whittled the deficit to 21-12.
