Georgia 12, Vanderbilt 0 After One Quarter

How did Vandy answer Georgia’s swift touchdown drive late in the first quarter? Not well: They snapped the ball over Larry Smith’s head, and the ball was bounced around between Smith and a couple Georgia players before finally dribbling out the back of the end zone for a safety. Brandon Boykin returned the ensuing free kick to the 25 and Georgia got a first-down run from Aaron Murray before time expired in the first period.

Thanks to Georgia burning all of their time-outs (and Vandy taking one of theirs), two scoring plays being reviewed (including a scoop-‘n’-score by Georgia’s Christian Robinson that was overturned) and a series of injuries and penalties, the first quarter has taken nearly an hour. Just more time for Uga VIII to soak in the atmosphere and get acclimated, I guess.
