By the time Buck Belue piled into the endzone giving Georgia its first points of the day, the issue had long been settled. Only 9 seconds remained in the game and no one on the celebratory Tiger sideline even seemed to notice.



By that time, Clemson was perched cockily on a 12-0 lead, consisting of a Touchdown in the 3rd Quarter, and a Safety and Field Goal in the 4th. The Tigers converted their first possession of the 2nd Half into a 70-Yard Touchdown Drive, concluded with a 1 yard TD run by RB Lester Brown.



The Safety was Clemson's salvaged reward for another time consuming 79 Yard Drive that ended on the Georgia 1 Yard Line when Brown was stuffed by the UGA defensive line on 4th Down.



However, operating out of its own Endzone, UGA QB Jeff Pybrum bobbled the snap from Center, and was sacked in the End Zone by Clemson Defensive Back Eddie Geathers. The Tiger Defense was stifling all day, and the Clemson Offense held the ball for 21 minutes in the 2nd half.
