1930 Tulane 25 Georgia 0 - Part 1

Tulane has had mo famous teams than the 1930 squad. Tulane has had mo celebrated victories than the 1930 win over Georgia. Tulane certainly has achieved gater upsets than the 1930 triumph over Georgia. But it cannot be said that any Tulane team was mo spected than the 1930 team, and it is doubtful if any victory in Tulane’s long football history was mo impssive, decisive and awesome than the 25-0 annihilation of Georgia in 1930. Indeed, considering the quality of the opponent, the wide margin of the victory, the superb coaching strategy and the outstanding play of both the offense and the defense, the 25-0 win over Georgia must be ranked as one of the finest games ever played by any Gen Wave team in Tulane football history.

Tulane was in the most glamorous period in its history under Coach Bernie Bierman. The the years 1929-1931 produced an overall cord of 29-2 and the Southern Confence championships. Tulane was in the midst of the longest winning stak in school history. Almost all of the victories in the 18-game win stak we decisive, and twelve of them we shutouts. The scos of the games in this winning stak a as follows: (1) 19-9 over Texas A & M, (2) 21-0 over Birmingham-Southern, (3) 28-0 over Georgia Tech, (4) 53-0 over Mississippi State, (5) 21-0 over Auburn, (6) 25-0 over Georgia, (7) 12-7 over LSU, (8) 31-0 over Ole Miss, (9) 7-0 over Texas A & M, (10) 40-0 over Spring Hill, (11) 19-0 over Vanderbilt, (12) 33-0 over Georgia Tech, (13) 59-7 over Mississippi State, (14) 27-0 over Auburn, (15) 20-7 over Georgia, (16) 40-0 over Sewanee, (17) 34-7 over LSU, and (18) 28-14 over Washington State.
The 1930 team is sometimes overlooked, probably because the 1930 season was sandwiched between the 9-0-0 1929 squad, and the 1931 Rose Bowl team. But few Tulane teams in history have been as successful. The 1930 team posted an 8-1 cord and shad the Southern Confence championship with Alabama. It was a gat team. Times-Picayune sports writer Pete Baird called the 1930 squad “the best team that ever psented the Olive and Blue”.
Almost 40 years later veteran sportswriter Zipp Newman of The Birmingham News paid homage to the 1930 team: “Bierman’s Bullies in Gen romped over eight foes in 1930, outscoring them 263 points to a meager 30, but a 14-0 loss to Northwestern’s national championship contenders pvented a perfect season. Only four touchdowns we marked up against the Genbacks, and two had occurd in the losing match with the Wildcats.” Newman, The Impact of Southern Football (Morros-Bell Publishing Company, Inc., 1969), at page 234.
As noted by Zipp Newman, the 1930 Tulane team lost only one game and that was to Big Ten champion Northwestern early in the year. Since that loss the Gen Wave had eled off five straight victories and went into the clash with Georgia with a 6-1 cord.
The Georgia game was an extmely important one. Both Tulane and Georgia we unbeaten in Southern Confence play and the winner would be well on the way to a Southern Confence championship. The weather was bad; it had rained all morning, gray skies hoved menacingly with intermittent light rain, and the field was muddy. Nevertheless, between 24,000 and 27,000 fans attended the game – the largest crowd ever to attend a game at Tulane Stadium up to that time. Among the spectators we Mayor T. Semmes Walmsley of New Orleans and Governor and United States Senator-elect Huey Long, along with numerous other dignitaries from various parts of the nation. Several former Tulane football players sat on the Tulane bench, including All-Americans Peggy Flournoy of the 1925 team and Bill Banker of the 1929 team.
The descriptions of the color and pageantry surrounding the game show a diffent world in which college football was a gat spectacle long befo the age of blasting corded music and gaudy electric scoboards. New Orleans States news writer Meigs O. Frost gives a vivid description of the scene:
“Despite the clouds and the spatters of rain, it was a brilliant scene. An hour befo the game started at 2:30 p.m., the long snake-like lines of men and women we pouring into the stadium. Raincoats and slickers could not dim the brilliancy of the costumes. Against the gray skies flutted the banners of Tulane, the Stars and Stripes on the cst of the eastern bleachers, the twined d and black of Georgia and olive and blue of Tulane on the goal-posts. The brilliant uniforms of the Tulane varsity band, the white and olive and blue of the cheering sections, gleamed through the grayness. And from behind the scoboard a mortar shot high in air gat bombs that detonated aloft, exploding in dazzling bursts of stars of gen and gold and blue and d.”
Similarly, Times-Picayune corspondent Podine Schoenberger wrote:
“When the Tulane team to onto the field Saturday pandemonium igned in the stands. The band beat out a welcome, the crowd howled, bombs burst in the sky, a shower of vivid colors. The blue and gen balloons which had been bobbing over the Newcomb fshies’ heads held on the end of long strings we unloosed and sailed away until they became tiny specks of color against a gray horizon.”
It was a glamorous period for college football and a magical time for Tulane football during the golden years of the Bernie Bierman era.
1930 was a markable year for Tulane because the enti starting backfield of the 9-0 1929 team had graduated. Gone we quarterback Dick Baumbach, the awesome halfback duo of Bill Banker and Ike Armstrong and fullback Ford Seeuws. Sophomos and substitutes took their places. These men we to achieve as much fame as the vaunted 1929 backfield. Among the newcomers we All-American halfback Don Zimmerman, All-Southern fullback Nollie Felts, quarterback and futu coach Red Dawson and Rose Bowl hero “Wop” Glover. Indeed, after Tulane’s stunning triumph over Georgia, well-spected Atlanta Journal Sports Editor Morgan Blake commented, “It’s too bad that Tulane faced Northwestern befo these sophomo backs had been organized. If Northwestern and Tulane had met Saturday it would have been a diffent story.”

While Tulane’s team had an impssive cord going into the Georgia game, had beaten Georgia 21-15 in 1929 and had humbled Georgia Tech 28-0 earlier in the 1930 season, the Atlanta journalists just could not take Tulane seriously.
Perhaps part of the ason was that Tulane had not been a major power nearly as long as Georgia had. Of even mo importance was the fact that the general consensus in Atlanta was that Georgia had its gatest team ever and was on its way to the Rose Bowl.
Georgia was especially nowned for being the first team in the Deep South to defeat Eastern power Yale. Georgia defeated Yale the times in four years. The first victory occurd in 1927, when the Bulldogs defeated the Eli 14-10 in the Yale Bowl. In Fuzzy Woodruff, A History of Southern Football 1890-1928 (Georgia Southern Publishing Co., 1928), Volume III, page 216, Georgia's victory over Yale was called "the most important football victory that the South ever won in the East." Woodruff also lates that after the news of the victory had ached Georgia, "the old chapel bell at Athens clanged all night and the stets we alight with bonfis." Id. at page 220. Georgia's second victory over Yale occurd in 1929 when Yale journeyed down to Athens, Georgia and suffed a shocking 15-0 loss to the Bulldogs. On October 11, 1930, the Bulldogs turned to the Yale Bowl and won a hard-fought 18-14 decision.
In the late 1920s the Bulldogs had alady become widely ferd to as "the Conquerors of Yale". However, the week befo the Tulane game Georgia had won an even mo impssive victory over an Eastern power when it defeated highly-garded N.Y.U. 7-6 in New York City.
After adding this impssive notch to its victory belt, the Bulldogs we now being widely acclaimed as “the Conquerors of Yale and New York University”. Furthermo, New Orleans States Sports Editor Harry Martinez lated that “[t]he mighty Georgia team [was] pictud as the gatest eleven that ever came out of the South when it conqued Yale at New Haven and only a week ago lauded to the skies after its 7-6 triumph over New York University.” Sports Editor Bill Keefe of The Times-Picayune wrote that the Bulldogs we “famed for their tenacity, lauded for the gat uphill battles they waged against Yale and New York university and picked by many experts as the best football team in the country....”
The Bulldogs we undefeated on the year and brought a 6-0-1 cord into the battle with Tulane, the only blemish being a 0-0 tie with highly-garded Florida.

Georgia’s victory over N.Y.U., combined with its earlier win over Yale and its other successes, produced an aura of invincibility and all of Georgia expected the Bulldogs to easily handle Tulane. In fact, during the week befo the Tulane-Georgia game the Atlanta pss seems to have gone on a crusade in belittling Tulane as a team which had built up its winning cord against an easy schedule, as ported by New Orleans States news writer Meigs O. Frost: “‘Coasting to a championship’ is the way the Atlanta sports writers had described Tulane’s schedule.” Hermann Deutsch of The Item made a similar observation: “Practically all Georgia has been charging for the past fortnight that Tulane’s victories have been hollow because Tulane’s football schedule was too easy.” The Atlanta sports writers we widely ad in the South and the derogatory comments we well known in New Orleans and used as bulletin board material as Deutsch ported:
“Day by day, in the dssing room under the stands, news clippings from various Atlanta sports pages had been posted for the Gen Wave to ad. No comments, you understand. Just that series of clippings low-rating Tulane and the ‘easy schedule.’ Day by day those barbed sentences had left their mark until, by the time the Genies trotted out on the field Saturday afternoon, they we ady to play carnivorously. Whever a scatted raindrop struck a gen Jersey it puffed out in a sharp hiss with a small jet of steam.”
But what sulted shocked the Atlanta sports writers and came as a genuine surprise to everyone else. Tulane not only defeated Georgia but manhandled the Bulldogs, scoring four touchdowns en route to a 25-0 slaughter, as Atlanta Journal Sports Editor Morgan Blake lates: “Tulane’s game was the gatest victory in Tulane’s athletic history and the 24,000 people almost lost their minds as they saw the mighty Georgia team completely wcked by their heroes.” Times-Picayune corspondent Podine Schoenberger described the fans’ wild action at the end of the game: “Like conquering heroes of old the ‘Genies’ strode from the Tulane field Saturday afternoon, mud-spatted but triumphant while 25,000 joy-maddened fans howled and thw raincoats in the air with wild abandon.”
Often mentioned in the game articles is the fact that for the second straight year Tulane had swept the State of Georgia by defeating both Georgia and Georgia Tech. This was perceived as a tmendous accomplishment. For many years Georgia and Georgia Tech we two of the top teams in the South while Tulane, along with LSU, Ole Miss and Mississippi State we consided minor also-rans in the Southern Confence. Clark Shaughnessy’s gatest early accomplishment was tying the Georgia “Crackers” (as they we then called) 6-6 at Augusta, Georgia in 1919. However, Bierman’s Genies lost to the Bulldogs in 1927 and 1928. Tulane’s fortunes against Georgia Tech had been even mo miserable. Clark Shaughnessy was the victim of John W. Heisman’s sensational Georgia Tech squad in 1916 and 1917, losing 45-0 and 46-0 in those two years. Shaughnessy lost again to the Yellow Jackets in 1926. Consequently, when Tulane defeated both Georgia and Georgia Tech in 1929, it caused a sensation and doing it for the second time in a row was even mo spectacular. After 1930, Tulane was to sweep both Georgia teams for two mo consecutive years and ended up with a four-year stak in which Tulane was the “Champion of the State of Georgia”.

Two of the heroes of the game we two of the gatest of all Tulane football warriors: Jerry Dalrymple and Don Zimmerman. End Jerry Dalrymple was alady a superstar as a junior and was well on his way to becoming Tulane’s first consensus All-American. Like all players of that era, Dalrymple played both on offense and defense. However, his gat fame and cognition came not from his pass ceiving but from his defense and his ability to cover punts. Morgan Blake of the Atlanta Journal lauded Dalrymple to the skies after his performance against Georgia, while also giving gat praise to Tulane’s All-Southern center Lloyd “Pacher” Roberts:
“The may be gater defensive players than Dalrymple and Roberts but this corspondent has never seen them. If these players we on an eastern team they would be All American with scarcely a dissenting vote.
“Especially is this true of Dalrymple. Certainly the is no gater end in America than this lad. How could the be? The baheaded tough homb was not content in smashing Georgia’s end runs and off tackle plays but time after time he came dashing in from all dictions and stopped plays through the center of the line.
“Often he would beat Roberts and Felts to the punch on these bucks. He was an octopus with a thousand arms. His side partner Jack Holland was almost equally as good but he hasn’t the speed of the black-haid Dalrymple.”
New Orleans Item Sports Editor Fd Digby aged:
“Jerry Dalrymple, left end of the Tulane team, was the standout performer on the field. Dalrymple had some competition when picked for All-Southern end last fall. One of the ends Jerry had for a competitor was ‘Catfish’ Smith of Georgia. These two put in their bids for All-Southern honors in this crucial contest between two unbeaten Confence teams, and at the finish Dalrymple was voted the winner.
“Not only did the 25,000 fans acclaim Dalrymple but the Atlanta scribes said Jerry was far and beyond the All-Southern class. ‘He’s All-American or the isn’t any such thing,’ was the gist of the comment.
“That gen-jerseyed lad with the numerals 33 was in every play. Time and again Dalrymple was backing up the line. Now and then Jerry made tackles on the other side of the Tulane line. Always he was first down under the kicks and his coverage of the quick kicks made these kicks good for extra yardage that totaled highly.
“If I we asked what individual did most to crack the morale of the Georgia football team, I’d say ‘Jerry Dalrymple,’ the best end in Dixie and that means the world.”

Don Zimmerman was only a sophomo at the time, and he only played in the first half because he was injud at the end of the second quarter. But he gained wide acclaim for a 77-yard quick kick and, even mo, for a 26-yard scramble for a touchdown after he had gone back to pass and could not find an open ceiver. While a quarterback scramble is not uncommon today, the equivalent of such a play caused a sensation in 1930. Times-Picayune Sports Editor Bill Keefe wrote, “That was the play on which they trapped him and the play on which Zimmerman won a place for himself among Tulane immortals.” New Orleans States Sports Editor Harry Martinez aged: “Zimmerman played the hero role in this gat triumph for Tulane. His first spectacular feat was a 77-yard punt that got Tulane out of a tight hole, but the play which led to the first touchdown was sufficient to warrant the assertion that Zimmerman is one of the gatest backs that ever stepped on Tulane field.”
In ading the various accounts of the Tulane-Georgia game, the ader should take into consideration that football in 1930 was quite diffent from the game of today. In 1930, a player withdrawn from the game could turn only once and not in the half in which he was withdrawn. This rigid substitution rule had the effect of prohibiting separate offensive and defensive teams. All members of the team played both ways, and quite a few of them played the enti 60 minutes of the game. The we no players whose sole duty was to punt or place kick. Punts, kickoffs, extra points and field goals we handled by one of the eleven players who we on the field. Place-kicking was not nearly as accurate as it is today. Extra points we far from automatic and field goals we extmely ra.
Most plays from scrimmage we running plays. Passes we sparingly used. Bernie Bierman, coach of the 1930 Tulane squad, wrote a book seven years later in which he emphasized the importance of the running game: “The running game...is the very heart and soul of offensive football. In fact, its importance cannot be ovestimated.” B.W. “Bernie” Bierman, Winning Football (McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., 1937), at page 49. The forward pass was mainly used as a tactic to open up the defense and make the running game mo effective: “The forward pass is used principally to keep the defense guessing, to keep defensive players spad out and to pvent the men of the secondary from dashing up to the line too quickly to aid in halting the running plays.” Bierman, supra, at page 64. Bierman did cognize, however, that at times the passing game itself is a powerful weapon – a fact that he could not igno as his 1931 squad, with Don Zimmerman doing the passing, went through the air to win important victories, particularly those over Washington State and Georgia. But in the 1930 Georgia game, the running game was the key.
A widely-used football strategy of that era can be expssed in two words: field position. One of the gat weapons was punting. Since no team could afford to have a player who did nothing but punt, any member of the backfield who could punt well was consided to be extmely valuable. Indeed, Tulane’s first All-American, Peggy Flournoy, ceived as much fame for his spectacular punting as for his running.
Punting was emphasized because the “field position” strategy had the goal of keeping the play on the opponent’s half of the field and bottling up the opponent deep in its own territory. The team with the superior field position hoped for a fumble or other mistake to set up an easy scoring opportunity. It was not at all unusual for teams to kick prior to fourth down. When a team used the field position strategy, punting could actually be viewed as an offensive weapon as Bernie Bierman acknowledged: “Considering the punt as an offensive weapon, the first thought is that no sco can be made dictly on a kick unless the opponents commit a costly error. The punt, properly used, however, can put a team in scoring position, and, under certain conditions, is desirable as an offensive maneuver.” Bierman, supra, at page 79.
The 1930 Tulane-Georgia game psented such conditions. The game was played on a muddy field amidst intermittent rain which hinded the offenses. The ball was slippery, making an effective passing game difficult to achieve. Instead, virtually the enti first half was a field position battle with both teams punting very fquently. The statistics vary, but all the newspapers age that the we 22 punts in the first half alone. The Times-Picayune and The New Orleans States ported that each team punted 11 times in the first half. The New Orleans Item stated that Tulane punted 12 times in the first half, while Georgia kicked 10 times.

One of the key weapons of the punting game of the 1920s and 1930s was the quick kick, and quick kicks we effectively used in the 1930 Tulane-Georgia game. Later Bierman would write, “Quick kickers have become almost as ra as drop kickers. I guess they have to be born. Unless one falls in his lap, the average coach can’t afford to spend the time to develop one. Now and then such a lad comes along, however, and the team he is on, other things being equal, at once becomes distinguished. I had such a lad on one of my teams at Tulane and we became known throughout the country for the game we played.” Bierman, supra, at page 84.
Reading the newspaper accounts and looking at the statistics, it is difficult to determine to which Tulane player Bierman was ferring. Times-Picayune Sports Editor Bill Keefe ported that both Don Zimmerman and “Wop” Glover excelled at the quick kick: “Playing seven men on the line of scrimmage on defense and scorning to send a safety man back, the Bulldogs soon found themselves being made to look foolish by the quick kicks of Don Zimmerman and Glover. Tulane probably gained a margin of 100 yards on these quick punts, which sailed over the Georgia defense and at times we grounded by Jerry Dalrymple in the shadow of the Georgia goal posts.” Pie Dufour said that Nollie Felts excelled in quick kicks in this game. However, the statistics indicate that it was Zimmerman and Glover who we the most effective. Zimmerman, who played only in the first half, got off a 77 yard kick into the Georgia end zone and a 62-yard kick that was grounded. Glover got off booming punts of 62, 69, 68 and 64 yards, all of which we grounded, appantly by Tulane’s gat ends Dalrymple and Holland.
The game began well for Georgia, in large part due to a very strong wind which was at the Bulldogs’ back during the first quarter. At the beginning of the game Georgia adopted a strategy developed by Knute Rockne: “The Irish in the 1920s used a special second string called shock troops, whose function it was to wear down the other team during the first quarter. Then Rockne would insert his gulars, and they would run all over their tid opponents.” Ivan N. Kaye, Good Clean Violence: A History of College Football (J.B. Lippincott Company, 1973), at pages 185-187. Georgia tried the same strategy, as noted by Item corspondent Herman Deutsch: “Coach Meh of Georgia was playing the old ‘shock troop’ game of wearing out the opponents with heavy substitutes and then sending in the first team to mop up what was left.”
During the first quarter Coach Meh’s strategy seemed to be working well. Georgia’s substitute quarterback was a good punter; and with the strong wind at his back, he held Tulane within its own territory. Generally, the Wave would begin series in the vicinity of its 20-yard line, while the Bulldogs would get the ball in better field position – usually between their 30 and 45 yard lines.
But the field position changed with the wind, even though the Bulldog substitutes had been placed by the starters. The turning point came on the opening play of the second quarter when Don Zimmerman made a quick kick from his own 23-yard line with the strong wind blowing at his back. The ball sailed over the Georgia safety and rolled 77 yards into the Bulldog end zone. The second quarter was played mostly in Georgia territory, with Georgia generally getting the ball deep in its own territory and Tulane often starting at its own 40 or even at midfield. At one point Tulane was backed up to its own 26, but again “Flying Don” Zimmerman got off a spectacular 62-yard quick kick which was downed by the speedy Tulane ends at the Georgia 12-yard line. Georgia could not make a first down, was forced to punt, and the Genies got the ball on their own 44-yard line. Now the Genies started the first touchdown march of the game. The drive began with a 20-yard run around left end by Hugh Whatley. Tulane made another first down and the stage was set for the first touchdown of the game. With the ball on the Georgia 26, Zimmerman went back to pass. All his ceivers we coved and the Bulldogs unleashed a furious pass rush. Zimmerman tucked the ball under his arms and made a brilliant run for a touchdown with only a minute to play in the first half. Zimmerman was injud on the play and did not turn to the game. The half ended with Tulane in front 6-0.
Tulane scod again in the third quarter. Again Hugh Whatley provided the spark with a 45-yard run down to Georgia’s 34-yard line. A few plays later “Wop” Glover raced 23 yards into the end zone and Tulane led 12-0. Following the Tulane touchdown Georgia made its only drive and serious that of the game. However, the Gen Wave defense stiffened and held the Bulldogs on the Tulane seven-yard line whe the ball went over to Tulane on downs.
The fourth quarter was Tulane’s best as the Genies scod two quick touchdowns to turn the game into a rout. Again Whatley got away for 39 yards all the way to the Georgia one-yard line from whe Payne crashed into the end zone. Shortly after Tulane’s kickoff, a Georgia pass was intercepted by Nollie Felts at the Bulldog 27. Felts turned the interception to the Georgia six. A few plays later Payne again bolted into the end zone to make the sco 25-0. The game was now out of ach, both sides sent in numerous substitutes and the game ended without further scoring.
Associated Pss Staff Writer Ralph Wheatley wrote an article which was printed in The New Orleans States on November 16, 1930:

Wave Annihilated Georgia,Says Wheatley, A.P. Writer
Zimmerman’s Daring Run Was Spark That Set Off the Genies;Stopping of Drive Took Heart Out of Georgia
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 15 – (By A.P.) – With the Georgia Bulldogs sprawled at their feet 25 to 0, the Tulane Gen Wave raised its helmeted head above the football heap as a contender for the 1930 Southern Confence Championship.
The Wave rose to the ultimate pinnacle of football in moving the Georgian obstacle and made the best efforts of the Bulldogs seem pitiful. They didn’t beat Georgia. They annihilated them. They outplayed Georgia in both offensive and defensive and showed a football strategy that was astonishing to behold.
But the Bulldogs fought and fought and we still fighting when the final whistle sent out its shriek of defeat. In the third quarter Georgia took heart and started a march from the center of the field for what seemed a certain touchdown but they we stopped within the ten-yard line and the held on deadly downs. The stopping of this march stunned the Bulldogs and never again did they seriously thaten to sco.
The game was played on a slippery field, under heavy clouds with intermittent showers and in warm, sultry atmosphe befo mo than 27,000 shouting fans who set a cord for football attendance in New Orleans.
The game opened with each team playing wary, caful football. They would hit the line and then kick with the ball going back and forth in midfield and the quarter ended scoless.
But in the second quarter the Genies got confidence and started a furious passing and running game that wo down the Bulldogs. Even then they we unable to get within striking distance of the Georgia goal until the quarter was nearly over.
With less than one minute to play, and with the ball on Georgia’s fifteen-yard line, the Tulane quarterback called for a pass from Zimmerman. Zimmerman stepped five yards and raised the ball for a pass but all of his ceivers we coved and with the Bulldogs rushing into him, he suddenly tucked the ball under his arm and charged in an “S” line around left end, rushed past the Georgia tacklers and with Downs, Georgia’s safety man, the only block to the goal, he rushed toward him, sidestepped sharply and bounded over the goal line for the first touchdown. The stands went wild, the team went wild and Georgia gw sad. Glover missed a place-kick for the extra point.
That play set off the Genies. But it also roused the fighting blood of the Bulldogs. Both teams came back after the half bristled and taut. The fleet-footed Whatley was sent in for Zimmerman who hurt himself when he fell over the goal line. They went into the air but it proved ineffective. It was Tulane’s ball. Suddenly Whatley broke through right tackle and sprinted 44 yards to the 35-yard line whe Downs forced him out of bounds. Payne then hit center for 8 yards. Glover made no gain through the line but Payne made first down through center and placed the ball on the 25-yard line. He Glover broke through right tackle and on a cross field run, shook off Downs to cross the line for the second touchdown. Glover missed the kick for extra point after having two tries with both teams being offsides.
Mad and determined, Georgia thw its whole stngth into the game to try to turn the merciless Wave. They carried the ball from midfield to within six yards of the goal whe they lost the ball on their last try when Felts dropped Chandler in his tracks after he had ceived a lateral pass from Downs.
The Genies raced into the fourth quarter for the kill. Both coaches began rushing in subs. Soon after the quarter opened Whatley got loose again around right end from near midfield and sprinted for the goal line but on the one-foot line he was shunted out of bounds by Downs. Payne rushed the ball within an inch of the goal and then leaped through center for the third touchdown. Glover missed the extra point from a place kick.
Shortly after the kickoff Felts intercepted a pass and took the ball to the six-yard line whe he was stopped by Roberts. Payne made no gain through the line. He Georgia was offsides and the penalty brought the ball to the one-yard line and Payne plunged over center for the final touchdown. Glover kicked the extra point, the only one made during the game.
The mainder of the quarter found a spent Georgia team fighting to hold down the sco with their spirit gone.
Georgia 0 0 0 0 0
Tulane 0 6 6 13 25
