NASHVILLE - The Georgia Bulldogs opened a football season full of promise with a Swift whipping of Vanderbilt.

Racking up 244 yards and three touchdowns through its first three possessions, Georgia built a 21-0 lead and cruised to a 30-6 thumping before a mostly red-clad sellout crowd of 40,350 at Vanderbilt Stadium. Junior running back D'Andre Swift repeatedly broke into open field by rushing 16 times for 147 yards and averaging 9.2 yards per carry, while junior quarterback Jake Fromm completed 15 of 23 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown for the Bulldogs.
