Georgia traveled to Nashville and defeated the Vanderbilt Commodores 31-14. The Dawgs’ running game was great as usual, led by Nick Chubb and his 189 yards on the ground. Isaiah "The Human Joystick" McKenzie returned a punt for a touchdown, and Jordan Jenkins was a one man wrecking crew on defense.
Outside of that, there were several question marks that remain unanswered, starting with the quarterbacks. Greyson Lambert went 11/21 for 116 yards in a performance that will not cut it against superior opposition. Backup Brice Ramsey didn’t fare much better in limited action.
Lambert and Ramsey need to clean things up at practice this week before Steve Spurrier and the South Carolina Gamecocks come to play in Athens on Saturday.

Newcomers: #19 BYU, #23 Northwestern, #24 Wisconsin, #25 Oklahoma State
#8 Notre Dame. Notre Dame needed a late comeback to secure victory against the Virginia Cavaliers. In that game, starting quarterback Malik Zaire was lost for the season with a broken ankle. Any chance the Fighting Irish had at making the playoffs may have gone down with Zaire.
#14 Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets' offense is a well-oiled machine behind quarterback Justin Thomas, as they accrued 439 yards on the ground against the Tulane Green Wave last week. Tech will look to prove they are legitimate contenders when they travel to South Bend this weekend.
