It's hard to say Georgia passed this test after getting an early touchdown and still letting Vanderbilt run out to a 17-7 lead. Until Darryl Gamble forced a Cassen Jackson-Garrison fumble in the final three minutes, Georgia players admitted they were having a familiar sinking feeling. Maybe making their own breaks in the final moments will light a fire.
Throw to Demiko Goodman
Goodman caught two passes for 31 yards and had other opportunities that didn't work out. Overall, the Bulldogs spread the ball around beautifully. Tony Wilson led the way with four catches, and eight other Georgia players caught passes.
Rod Battle did that in the first quarter, forcing a Jeff Jennings' fumble that led to the Bulldogs' first touchdown. Gamble can hardly be credited with a powerful blow on the play in which he forced Jackson-Garrison to fumble, but he did make a play that was desperately needed.
