Vanderbilt Vs. Georgia: Marlon Brown Likes Playing In His Home State

Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Marlon Brown had a big game against Vanderbilt on Saturday, but then again, who didn't? It was special for Brown, though, being a Memphis-native and playing in front of a hometown crowd.

Brown led the team in receiving yards against Vanderbilt for the second straight season, this time with 114 total yards. In 2011, he had a career-high 121 yards in the close game in Nashville

"Both (Vanderbilt and Tennesee) recruited me," Brown said to The Telegraph after Georgia's 48-3 win Saturday. "I wanted to go to Tennessee when I was younger, but things change when you get older. I love playing against my hometown team. It felt really good."
