Vanderbilt-Georgia As It Happened

Vanderbilt was shutout for the first time since 2003 by the Georgia Bulldogs. Looks inside to see Don Yates' comments as the game progressed.

(Time ET)

10:21 It's about 2 hours before game time here. Looks like around 3 or 4 K already in here. The UGA band is marching into the stadium making a ruckus. The UGA players are walking around like premadonnas after their big win over juggernaut UT.

11:50 Just about 32 minutes before kickoff and I'd say there's about 35,000 people in here. Nice little Vandy section going in the corner of the West end zone. Maybe a couple hundred there now. No SOG here; too bad.

12:08 It's filling up rapidly. However, there are several large areas without fans. I'd say about 10,000 empty seats at least.

12:12 They are introducing Bruce UGA VIII. Loud applause. They put a spiked collar on him.

12:17 Vandy team runs on the field to boos.
