North Murray grad Ladd McConkey shines in Georgia's historic rout of Vandy

The Southeastern Conference determined that last year's Georgia-Vanderbilt football game in Athens would be a no-contest due to COVID-19 protocol preventing the Commodores from meeting the necessary roster requirements.

Saturday afternoon at Vanderbilt Stadium, the No. 2 Bulldogs delivered their own no-contest verdict with a 35-point first quarter in an eventual 62-0 thrashing. Freshman tight end Brock Bowers and redshirt freshman receiver Ladd McConkey, the former North Murray High School standout, each had touchdowns via receptions and end-around runs during Georgia's onslaught within the first 15 minutes in Nashville.

The 62-point massacre was the largest in series history, topping the 47-0 win by the Commodores in 1901, and it was Georgia's second-biggest SEC win behind the 75-0 pulverizing of Florida in 1942.
