It was not an easy victory by any means, but the Georgia Bulldogs went in to Nashville and got a win against the Vanderbilt Commodores.
There were some mistakes from the Bulldogs that have to be corrected in order for them to reach their goal of playing in the Georgia Dome in early December.
The good thing about this is the Bulldogs have two weeks to get ready for their next game, which is against a struggling Florida Gators team.
Here's grades for the Bulldogs in their win against Vandy.
Honestly, if it wasn't for the play of Murray, the Bulldogs would have lost.
Murray completed 22-of-38 pass attempts and threw for a career-high 326 yards and three touchdowns.
He was able to put up those numbers against a very strong Vandy secondary. There is no question he is making strides each game that he plays.
The one question about the running backs is why did Isaiah Crowell sit in the first quarter? He played sparingly throughout the game and his final numbers were 10 carries for 35 yards.
Richard Samuel received the majority of the load, as he carried the ball 15 times for 50 yards.
As a team, the Bulldogs rushed for 117 yards which is not great, but with the passing game on point, the running game took a backseat.
No Malcolm Mitchell? No problem because Michael Bennett, Marlon Brown and Tavarres King stepped up in a huge way.
Brown had a huge game with four catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Bennett led all receivers with with seven receptions for 89 yards and King caught five passes for 57 yards and one touchdown.
The offensive line was solid, as they only allowed one sack on Murray. But it had its share of trouble picking up some of Vandy's blitz packages.
The run blocking could have been better, but Vandy made sure players like Crowell and Samuel did not beat them.
The one thing I would like to see from the line is to use their size to their advantage. They are the biggest line in all of college football and the NFL, so they should not be pushed around.
For the first time this season, the defensive line got pushed around. It wasn't on a consistent basis, but Vandy had some early success running up the middle.
The defensive line tightened up in the second half which was a good sign, but it has to better to beat teams such as Auburn and Florida.
The linebackers gave up more rushing yards than they liked, but they excelled in pass overage. Vanderbilt threw a lot of screen plays at the start of the game, but went nowhere because players such as Jarvis Jones and Chase Vasser were playing sideline-to-sideline and made sure those plays went nowhere.
It was also good to see Alec Ogletree back in the mix, as he tallied one tackle for the Bulldogs.
Another reason the passing game for Vandy could never get going was the secondary for the Bulldogs constantly made plays. Bacarri Rambo led the team with eight tackles and one interception while Shawn Williams and Brandon Boykin also had an interception.
The more reps the secondary gets, the better it becomes. That's a good thing because it will be needed down the stretch.
Two missed field goals, a punt that was blocked, a kick returned for a TD and a faked punt allowed for a big play and led to points.
Those plays are the reason why the Bulldogs almost lost to Vandy. The special teams have had issues all season long, and they can't afford to have a game like this again.
