Georgia draws praise for yet another dominant effort in shutout win over Vanderbilt
Georgia moved to 7-0 Saturday with a 55-0 home victory over Vanderbilt.
Nobody expected the Commodores to give the top-ranked Bulldogs much of a game, and they didn’t.
It was still, however, an impressive win for Georgia.
The Bulldogs might have played down to the level of their competition a bit in recent weeks, most notably in victories over Kent State and Missouri.
That was not the case Saturday, as they dominated every facet of the game from the opening kick heading into their bye week.
Georgia piled up nearly 600 total yards in the game, led by 289 passing yards and 2 touchdowns from senior quarterback Stetson Bennett.

And in addition to pitching the shutout, the Bulldogs defense surrendered just 150 total yards on the day.
As the defending national champion and No. 1 team in the nation, Georgia has to do a lot to impress onlookers each week, which it did in Saturday’s win:

Georgia just shut out a team who was averaging 33.2 points per game prior to today
They’re allowing an average of just 9.14 points per game on defense. Straight dominance.

Georgia the only team in the SEC with good defense

Since the day Kirby left Alabama their defense started trending down. Georgia is now the defensive standard in college football.

And ICYMI… Georgia has "quietly" amassed over 500 yards of offense again with just over 8 minutes to go in the game…
