After each Georgia game, Seth Emerson takes look at some of the important and not-so-important numbers behind what happened on the field. This week, Seth filled in for Chip Towers grading Georgia’s performance. Since it’s always “next man up” here, too, DawgNation editor Bill Speros was called in off the bench to compute this week’s “By the numbers” following UGA’s 45-14 win over Vanderbilt. Georgia (6-0) plays host to Missouri this upcoming Saturday (7:30 p.m.).
