Georgia’s first game of the season is in the books, as the Bulldogs came away with a 30-6 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores.
The Bulldogs had a dominant rushing performance, as Georgia ran for 323 rushing yards. Junior D’Andre Swift led the way with 147 rushing yards.
The defense also kept Vanderbilt from doing much of anything on Saturday night, as the Commodores finished with just 225 total yards and no touchdowns.
But Georgia coach Kirby Smart still want to see more from the team after the win.
“We’ve still got a long way to go,” said Georgia head coach Kirby Smart. “But, I’m proud of our guys. I don’t take it lightly when you go on the road in a SEC opener and you open up with a couple touchdowns. We had a lot of young guys on defense step up and play well…We wanted to come in here and play physical, establish a brand of football that we play. I thought we did that.”
As for what people are saying about the game, the big take away is just how many Georgia fans ended up making the trip to Nashville this weekend. There was a lot of red in Vanderbilt’s stadium to witness the season-opening win.
