In the third quarter, Carter threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Champ Bailey, as Georgia cut the deficit to 21-14. Olandis Gary's 15-yard touchdown run tied the game at 21. Brooks threw a 67-yard touchdown pass to Terrence Wilkins, but Todd Braverman missed the extra point, giving Virginia a 27-21 lead at the end of three quarters. In the fourth quarter, Olandis Gary scored on a 2-yard run, giving Georgia a 28-27 lead. Quincy Carter later scored on a 1-yard touchdown run, giving the Bulldogs a 35-27 lead.
