SPECIAL THANKS BOWL HISTORY HONORS 82 | 58th AutoZone Liberty Bowl TCU GEORGIA BOWL EVENTS WELCOME pass and the Bulldogs were able to cash-in with an eight-play, 28- yard drive that was capped off with a one-yard run from Chubb to claim a 14-0 lead that held through the end of the first half. The Bulldogs took advantage of good field position in the fourth quarter, improved by runs of 14 and 18 yards by Herrien. Eason and Isaiah McKenzie then connected on a six-yard touchdown to put Georgia in control at 21-7 with 11:43 remaining in the contest. The Gamecocks moved within one touchdown with 1:40 remaining, but Georgia promptly answered as Terry Godwin scooped the onside kick attempt and ran it back for a score to seal the victory. GAME 7: Vanderbilt 17, Georgia 16 Oct. 15 | Athens, GA A fourth-quarter touchdown lifted Vanderbilt (3-4, 1-3) to a 17- 16 win over Georgia (4-3, 2-3) before a packed home crowd of 92,746 at Sanford Stadium in front of a SEC network televised audience. With the Bulldogs up 16-10, Vandy erased the deficit, as quarterback Kyle Shurmur highlighted the drive with passes of 37 and 27 yards to set up a two-yard rushing touchdown to grab the lead with a little over nine minutes left in the game.

Davin Bellamy led the unit with a career high eight tackles, while the Bulldogs recorded five pass breakups with Dominick Sanders getting his hands on two. Vanderbilt started the game with a quick score, as Darrius Sims returned the game’s opening kickoff 95 yards before back-to-back Georgia penalties set Vanderbilt up at the one-yard line before the punch-in into the endzone. It was a tough day on the ground for both teams as the Commodores managed just 62 rushing yards and Georgia tallied 75 yards running the ball.
