Posted Oct 20, 2013
Vanderbilt beat Georgia on Saturday behind a strong defensive effort and a 17-point fourth quarter Commodore scoring explosion. Look inside for photos of the memorable Vanderbilt win.
Things weren't looking good early on.
made some completions and a unsportsmanlike conduct call on Vandy put
in position to take a 3-0 lead on a 22-yard
answered Georgia's opening score with an 11-play, 76 yard drive that culminated in a 4-yard scoring run by
. Vandy led 7-3 with 4:16 to go in the first quarter.
After a 1-yard Aaron Murray Scoring run put the Dawgs ahead 10-7 to end the first quarter, Vandy drove to the Georgia 27 before VU QB
completed a 7-yard pass to

. Drew drew a targeting call and was ejected from the game. Later, in the game another Bulldog player would be called for targeting but not ejected.
Carta-Samuels completed a short pass to

Vanderbilt's defense put the pressure on Murray and the Bulldogs and forced a punt by the visitors.
Vanderbilt got the ball back and appeared to be headed for another score but an interception by Georgia's
and subsequent 39-yard return for a score put the Dawgs back on top 17-14 with 6:24 left in the half. In this photo former Vanderbilt commit

To make matters worse, on Vanderbilt's ensuing drive after the Georgia pick 6, starting QB Austyn Carta-Samuels was sacked and injured. He had to be replaced with backup
. Things were suddenly looking very bleak for the 'Dores.
Georgia would add another TD before the half on another Murray TD run to extend its lead to 24-14. Robinette completed a pass to
just before time ran out in the half. Vandy's quarterback situation worried all wearing Black & Gold.
In the third quarter Vandy's Robinette completed a pass to Jordan Matthews for 12 yards but the Commodores were forced to punt. Later another Bulldog field goal put made the score Georgia 27, Vanderbilt 14 with 6:24 left in the third.
Robinette was intercepted thanks to an on target pass that was bobbled by the receiver. However, the Vandy defense provided some much needed stops that allowed Robinette to get his bearings and the third quarter ended with Vandy threatening at the Georgia 36.
After another targeting call on Georgia but no ejection this time, Vanderbilt's Robinette made the play of the day when he slipped through the Bulldog defense to pull the 'Dores to within six at 27-21 with 10:38 to play. The folks in Red & Black were starting to get a little nervous.
Vanderbilt's defense forced another Georgia 3-and-out after the scoring run by Robinette and then Vanderbilt pushed the ball again into Georgia territory. Vandy's drive bogged down at the Bulldog 23 but another Carey Spear field goal pulled the Commodores to within 27-24 with 4:44 left to go in the game.
The Vandy defense forced yet another Georgia 3-and-out. Then with Georgia clinging to the 3 point lead and punting from its own 32, the Commodores got another golden opportunity when the ball was snapped over punter Collin Barber's head. The Commodores would get the ball at the Bulldog 13-yard line.
It took only one play for the opportunistic Vandy offense to take advantage of the Georgia special team's breakdown. Jerron Seymour took off running around the left side of the UGA defense.
Seymour then bolted down the sideline towards pay-dirt.
The tiny tailback was congratulated by Jordan Matthews and other teammates in the end zone. The Commodores now led 31-27 with 2:53 left in the game!
Georgia had two more chances to score with a future NFL quarterback but couldn't get the job done. A fumble recovery by
ended one drive while an interception by
was the final nail in the Georgia coffin.
There was lots of hugging after the game. A proud James Franklin hugs his young quarterback.
An emotional Austyn-Carta Samuels, who earlier in the week lost his grandfather, certainly deserved to be hugged.
Georgia head coach
needed a hug too.
