Just How Dominant Was Georgia Against Vanderbilt?

According to stats guru Phil Steele, the Bulldogs had the third most dominant performance of the weekend against Vanderbilt.

"3. Georgia dominated Vanderbilt just as the 43-0 score indicates. They just missed the largest MOV in series history which had been 45-0 in 1976. UGA missed a 31 yd FG with 10:54 left which would have given them that margin. The Bulldogs also had 2 TD’s overturned by replay. UGA finished with 22-8 FD and 547-140 yd edges."

The yardage advantage Georgia had was staggering. I can't remember the last time I saw a BCS team with just 140 yards of total offense.

With two straight dominant performances, it would appear UGA is back on track and they are right in the middle of the SEC East race too.

But those two performances were also against the two worst teams in the SEC, in my opinion.

I doubt Mark Richt's club will be as dominant on the road against Kentucky, but they face the Wildcats at a good time. UK is coming off two hard fought games including last week's emotional win over South Carolina. Joker Philips team may be running on E.
