Georgia Vs. Tennessee: Holy Third Quarter Yardage Margin

From Bill Connelly's Numerical, a look inside college football stats:

173: Yardage margin of the third quarter of Georgia's 20-12 win over Tennessee. Tennessee controlled much of the other three quarters, outscoring the Bulldogs by a 12-6 margin and outgaining them, 259 to 182; but Georgia surged after halftime, gaining 184 yards in 16 plays (Tennessee: 11 yards in 11 plays) and scoring two insurmountable touchdowns.

The third quarter: an underrated metric for gauging coaching staff strength. UGA won the halftime adjustment battle well enough to win the entire game.
