Vanderbilt vs. Georgia Football Series History

Georgia leads 77-17


Someone told me on Wednesday that Kirby Smart had angered the SEC officiating crews and that might help Vandy’s cause. I doubt that would make a difference and I don’t believe the officials would screw over teams intentionally. They are evaluated after every game. Anyway, look for Georgia to do for the entire game what Ole Miss did to Vandy on Saturday during the second half, which was throw the ball for a lot of yardage. Vanderbilt’s passing defense is atrocious. Their running defense is decent so throw the ball. Georgia wins by a lot.
