The Georgia Bulldogs are 5-1 against the Vanderbilt Commodores since September of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. UGA and Vanderbilt will face off in an SEC battle at 3:30 p.m. ET at Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs have a defense that allows only 10.67 points per game, so Vanderbilt’s offense will have their work cut out for them.
Last week, UGA turned the game against the Auburn Tigers into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 500 yards to 258. UGA put the hurt on Auburn with a sharp 42-10 win. UGA’s RB Daijun Edwards looked sharp as he punched in three rushing touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Vanderbilt was expected to have a tough go of it last week, and that’s exactly how things played out. They have to be aching after a bruising 52-28 defeat to the Ole Miss Rebels. This matchup was a close 20-17 at the break, but unfortunately for Vanderbilt it sure didn’t stay that way. Vanderbilt’s loss came about despite a quality game from RB Ray Davis, who rushed for one TD and 105 yards on 27 carries. Davis’ performance made up for a slower contest against the Alabama Crimson Tide three weeks ago.
UGA is the favorite in this one, with an expected 38.5-point (!) margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Georgia’s victory lifted them to 6-0 while Vanderbilt’s defeat dropped them down to 3-3. Allowing an average of 36.83 points per game, the Commodores haven’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming game.

#NFL scouts are going to love the tape of Darnell Washington, can attach to LOS, he is massive, he blocks and he is 6-FOOT-8 with great hands.
