Tennesse vs Georgia: Sanders Commings grabs two picks, seals Bulldog victory

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Sanders Commings moved from safety to corner on Saturday and nabbed two critical interceptions against Tennessee.

With the return of Bacarri Rambo at safety on Saturday, Sanders Commings moved back to cornerback and rewarded the Bulldogs with two huge fourth-quarter interceptions to help No. 5 Georgia overcome Tennessee.

The sixth and seventh interceptions of the senior's career were two of the Bulldogs' three critical takeaways in the final six minutes, including the pick that sealed the win.

Commings told the Augusta Chronicle that both of the interceptions couldn't have come at a better time.

"Both of the (interceptions) felt good," said Commings. "I saw the ball well and was able to get there in time. It’s always great to help the team, especially late in the game."

Head coach Mark Richt had specifically mentioned to the secondary beforehand that they would have opportunities to intercept Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray -- and the Bulldogs didn't let him down.

"I told (the defense) the ball is going to hit you in the hands and you gotta catch it. I felt like there would be times when they throw it and it’s going to hit the (defensive back) in the hands.

Georgia travels to Columbia, S.C. this weekend to take on the No. 6 South Carolina Gamecocks.
