The No. 5Georgia Bulldogs and Vanderbilt Commodores meet for their annual tilt Saturday, this year's edition in Athens after a wacky finish in Nashville last season.

Last year's game Georgia won 33-28, but not without a scare. Vanderbilt blocked a Bulldogs punt with seven seconds left and recovered at the Georgia 20-yard line. The Commodores were pushed back to the 25 because of a penalty, and two plays to get into the end zone both fell short.

Georgia is a much more highly touted team this year than it was last year; the Bulldogs are ranked No. 5 in this week's Associated Press Top 25 and already have one SEC win under their belt this season, a 41-20 win at the Missouri Tigers.

Meanwhile, the Commodores have struggled against quality competitions so far this year. They lost in the first week of the season to South Carolina, 17-13, and the next week to Northwestern, 23-13. South Carolina is No. 7 in this week's AP poll, and Northwestern received votes and is the de facto No. 28 in the poll.

Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray torched the Commodores for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in last year's meeting.

Georgia kicks off against the Commodores at Sanford Stadium on Saturday at 7:45 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
