Vanderbilt rallies, upsets No. 15 Georgia 31-27
VANDERBILT 31, GEORGIA 27

By TERESA M. WALKER

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vanderbilt finally has its first upset
of a Top 25 opponent under coach James Franklin, a win that had
the Commodores singing with the band and dancing in the end
zone.

They also likely ended No. 15 Georgia's faint hopes of a trip
back to the Southeastern Conference championship game for good
measure, too.

Jerron Seymour ran for a 13-yard touchdown with 2:53 left, and
Vanderbilt rallied from a 13-point deficit by scoring 17
unanswered points in the fourth quarter Saturday for a 31-27
victory.

The Commodores (4-3, 1-3) hadn't beaten a Top 25 team since Oct.
4, 2008, when they edged then-No. 13 Auburn in Nashville. They
also got their first victory over Georgia in Nashville since
1991, snapping a six-game skid to the Bulldogs.

"When you take over a program like we did ... every win has been
unbelievably significant to us and every win should be
significant to our fan base and to our community and to our
alumni because it's an opportunity," Franklin said when asked
about the meaning of the biggest win since he took over in
December 2010.

Vanderbilt rallied despite losing Austyn Carta-Samuels in the
second quarter with an injured left leg that had him on the
sidelines with crutches for the second half. Franklin did not
have an update.

Receiver Jordan Matthews said it was tough to see Carta-Samuels
hurt and replaced by Patton Robinette.

"At the same time in the game, you got to stay focused on the
mission," Matthews said. "I knew Patton was going to come in and
do his job."

Georgia (4-3, 3-2) failed to hold a 27-14 lead with 6:24 left in
the third quarter following Marshall Morgan's second field goal
of the game. The Bulldogs had chances to rally, but Brendan
Douglas fumbled after a catch with 1:59 left, and Aaron Murray
was intercepted on the final play.

Coach Mark Richt was being criticized when Georgia lost its
season opener to Clemson, and now the Bulldogs have lost two
straight in the SEC. Richt said everyone wants to talk about how
good things are when winning and everyone has an opinion when a
team starts losing. He had a message for his team after this
loss.

"I just wanted to make sure everyone understood that at Georgia
we stick together," Richt said.

Torren McGaster started the comeback by recovering a fumbled
punt by Damian Swann late in the third quarter. Robinette ran
for a 2-yard TD, and Carey Spear kicked a 40-yard field goal.
Seymour put Vandy ahead a play after Georgia punter Collin
Barber could only fall on a high snap at his own 13.

"We got the `W,' so that's the most important thing," Robinette
said.

Vanderbilt wound up holding the ball for more than 35 minutes
and outgained Georgia 337-221 in total offense. The Commodores
held Murray to just 114 yards passing, the third-lowest passing
performance of his career.

Murray became the SEC's career leader in total offense late in
the first quarter with a 7-yard pass to Arthur Lynch. That put
him a yard past Tim Tebow. Murray then finished off the drive
with a 1-yard keeper, putting Georgia up 10-7 at the end of the
first quarter.

The senior making his 48th career start also added a 2-yard TD
just before halftime for a 24-14 lead. But with so many
offensive players out with injuries, Murray couldn't keep the
Bulldogs' hopes of an SEC East title alive.

"Definitely very stunning, it's hard," Murray said.

Vandy's comeback was helped by the second targeting penalty
against Georgia in the game. Robinette's TD came on a drive kept
alive when officials flagged Georgia linebacker Ramik Wilson for
hitting Vandy receiver Jonathan Krause with his shoulder on an
incompletion on fourth-and-4. Review kept Wilson in the game,
but the penalty stood for a first down.

Georgia already lost defensive end Ray Drew with 11:19 left in
the second quarter. Officials flagged the defensive end for
targeting when Drew hit Carta-Samuels after he threw a pass and
pushed the quarterback to the ground. Georgia linebacker Jordan
Jenkins tried to be careful after the game but was not happy
with the call or the rule in general.

"I think it ruins the game," Jenkins said. "I think it's going
to ruin the game of football."

Georgia played without tailback Todd Gurley for a third straight
game because of a sprained ankle, along with the other injured
Bulldogs. The list grew longer as Bulldogs safety Josh
Harvey-Clemons hurt his right foot in the first half and did not
return.

Spear also ran for a 3-yard TD on a fake field goal in the
second quarter, giving Vandy a 14-10 lead.

The Commodores had all the momentum as they forced Georgia
three-and-out. Then they got too fancy, overloading the line
wide left. Shaq Wiggins jumped the screen from Carta-Samuels
from the side and returned the interception 39 yards for the TD
and a 17-14 lead.

Carta-Samuels was knocked out of the game on the next series
when sacked by Jenkins, one of three sacks by Georgia.
