Georgia at Vandy hasn’t lacked for excitement in the first half.

It was actually all pretty normal until the 2nd quarter when all sorts of stuff started happening with Vandy on offense. Early in the 2nd, defensive end Ray Drew from Georgia was ejected for a very bad targeting call.

On the same drive, coach James Franklin rolled the dice and found paydirt with a fake field goal handoff to kicker Gary Spear that was good for three yards and the lead, 14-10. On Vandy’s next possession it got even crazier, as Vandy tried a trick play screen pass out of an emory & henry formation (or maybe it was going to be a throwback). Quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels never saw cornerback Shaq Wiggins because of the formation and Wiggins jumped into the backfield and took the pass 39 yards for the Bulldog lead.

To finish out the half Georgia drove the field and converted a 4th down and 1 from the 2 yard line as Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray rushed around the right end on a run/pass option to make it 24-14.

It’s been entertaining, but Georgia is bouncing back nicely so far from the loss at home to Mizzou last week.
