Third quarter blog

3:30 left in third quarter, now it's 55-0

Vance Cuff is the latest Georgia player to get an interception, and like Bacarri Rambo earlier, and Brandon Boykin nearly, Cuff took it to the end zone.

Cuff's 30-yard return means Georgia's defense has about as many yards (87) as Idaho State.

Cuff started the game, but it's largely a reserve show for the Bulldogs now. Even Brandon Bogotay is now kicking extra points.

One injury note: Nose tackle Kwame Geathers will not return to the game after hurting his left ankle.

9:05 left in the third quarter, Georgia yada yada yada

Hutson Mason played the last series for the Bulldogs, who do appear to be starting to empty the bench. Carlton Thomas got the carries on that series, which resulted in a three-and-out.

The defense is slipping some backups in as well, including Jakar Hamilton at safety.

11:46 left in third quarter, Georgia now up 48-0

By my count, Georgia now has more points than Idaho State has total yards.

The Bengals went three-and-out (surprise!) on their opening drive of the second half. That was followed by a long punt return by Branden Smith, and a short time later Shaun Chapas joined the touchdown parade.

A.J. Green almost had his third touchdown of the game, but was ruled out at, I don't know, the one-foot line. Chapas carried it in two plays later.

But should Green even be out there? Or Aaron Murray? Or Justin Houston?

The starters were all back on the field for the second half, and DeAngelo Tyson promptly got hurt on the first play. He did walk off on his own a short time later.

Meantime, a few notes for you:

- This is the fifth straight game Georgia has scored at least 30 points, the first time in program history it has done that.

- The 35-point second quarter was the most in one quarter for Georgia since 1988, also against a I-AA opponent. (William & Mary).

And yeah, I called it I-AA. Sue me.

- I really don't think Brandon Boykin is going to get a chance to set that kickoff return record in this game. But I bet he gets A LOT of chances next week. And so will Auburn's kick returners.
