If loose lips sink ships, e’erybody and their momma in the Vanderbilt football program must’ve been talking this week. Georgia football came to Sanford Stadium North on Saturday afternoon and absolutely torpedoed the Commodores to move to 4-0 this season.
According to WynnBet, Georgia entered the game as a 35-point favorite. With Saturday’s matchup being an 11 am start local time, the Dawgs had covered that spread before most folks in Nashville sat down to eat lunch.
Like it was in Georgia football’s 2019 season opener, Vanderbilt Stadium was awash in red-and-black-clad fans. It felt more like Sanford Stadium North than a true road game for the Dawgs and they looked at home early.
Georgia’s scored touchdowns on its first five offensive possessions, including back-to-back scoring drives on short fields created by Commodore turnovers.
The kickoff coverage team caused a fumble that led to a Zamir White touchdown, and then on Vanderbilt’s ensuing offensive drive, Christopher Smith snagged his second interception of the season on Vandy’s first play.
It only took two plays for the Dawgs to find paydirt, with Ladd McConkey high-pointing a ball in the right corner of the endzone for his first career TD catch.
There’s plenty for Georgia football fans to celebrate after thumping the Commodores. These are our four main takeaways from the Dawgs fourth win of the 2021 season.
