00:00 The clock runs out on Georgia! Commodores win!

A big win for Vandy and everyone involved in the Commodore program deserves credit. The coaches made tweaks to the offense and defense during the bye week to give the team a chance to win. The players never gave up after falling behind by 13 and getting Carta-Samuels knocked out of the game. Again, like two years ago, many dirty hits by Georgia's defense. Thankfully the officiating crew enforced the targeting rule like it was supposed to be instead of waiting until after the game like 2011.

Hopefully the team will celebrate tonight and put this win over a what is really a very average UGA team behind them. Texas A&M is a much stronger opponent and will never give the Commodores the gifts that this subpar Georgia team did today.

FINAL: VANDERBILT 31, GEORGIA 27.
