In one of the shockers to date this season, especially in the SEC, Vanderbilt defeated Georgia in Athens 17-16 Saturday.

It’s a monumental victory for the Commodores, who finally won a conference game on the road for third-year coach Derek Mason. While his offense can be hard to watch, his defense stymied UGA’s dominant ground game.

As for the Bulldogs, just two weeks ago, they were a Hail Mary away against Tennessee — Joshua Dobbs to Jauan Jennings will forever live in infamy at Sanford Stadium — from taking control of the East. Now they’re 4-3 and more the likely out of the division race altogether. Fortunately, coach Kirby Smart and Co. get a bye next week.

The Dawgs dominated the box score, highlighted by 346 yards passing from Jacob Eason, but their special teams in particular were awful. This team needs the extra week of preparation with Florida up next.

Be sure to watch the video above for some quick commentary following a result that practically nobody saw coming.
