NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Brandon Coutu kicked a 37-yard field
goal as time expired to help Number 24 Georgia overcome a 10-point
halftime deficit and beat Vanderbilt 20-17 tonight.
Knowshon Moreno rushed for a career-high 157 yards in his first
start for Georgia (5-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference), who danced on
the Vanderbilt (3-3, 1-3) star at midfield after Coutu's kick
sailed through the uprights.
Vandy's Cassen Jackson-Garrison fumbled 7 yards short of the
goal line, setting up the Bulldogs' winning drive.
Matthew Stafford had 201 yards passing for Georgia, including
32-yard touchdown pass to Sean Bailey.
Sean Walker caught a touchdown pass and ran for another for
Vanderbilt, who didn't score a point in the second half. Walker
caught a 16-yard touchdown pass, originally ruled incomplete, to
give the Commodores a 17-7 lead. Walker bobbled the ball twice, but
appeared to control it before falling out-of-bounds in the back of
the end zone.
Vanderbilt essentially found themselves playing a road game with
Georgia fans painting Vanderbilt Stadium red in a rare sellout.
