Georgia Football has won 5 straight games against Vanderbilt. After Kirby Smart’s first-year defeat by the Commodores, Georgia has owned the series. The Dawgs have owned the Dores since the middle of the last century. But what is interesting is that the Vandy has not scored a touchdown against the Dawgs in 5 years!
Yeah, you read that right. It has been since 2018 that Vanderbilt has crossed the endzone against the Dawgs. The last time Vanderbilt scored against the Dawgs, Jake Fromm quarterbacked Georgia, Justin Feilds was the backup, and some guy named Stetson Bennett had just left Georgia to play at a JUCO in Mississippi.
That is how long it has been since Vanderbilt scored on the Dawgs. Also, the touchdown was a garbage-time touchdown with 2 seconds left on the clock in the 4th quarter. So, I put an asterisk on the streak; it should be 6.
According to Twitter or X (I am not sure how credible that is), Georgia is also trying to make SEC history against Vandy. Georgia is looking to be the only SEC school to shut out an opponent for 3 straight years.
I do not know if that is 100% accurate, but I will run with it. Look, when it comes to good stats and Georgia football, I’m a sucker. So, if that is true, that is pretty incredible. I tried googling and found nothing. So if anybody out there finds the answer, comment or message the Facebook page. I need to know!
Georgia should handle business in Nashville, even though they will be helping with the construction site that is FirstBank Stadium. But can they stop Vanderbilt from scoring a touchdown? Furthermore, can the Dawgs shut out the Commodores for the third straight year?
Seems unlikely, but then again, it is Vanderbilt, so anything is possible. I know we have grown accustomed to Georgia’s defense shutting out teams, but when you think about it, it is pretty incredible. So, let’s all root for the goose egg on Saturday.
