Georgia Defeats Commodores

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Carlton Thomas ran for the first two

touchdowns of his career, Aaron Murray passed for two touchdowns

and Georgia welcomed new mascot Uga VIII by beating Vanderbilt 43-0

on Saturday.

Washaun Ealey led Georgia with 17 carries for 123 yards and a

touchdown. Caleb King, who normally shares carries with Ealey,

served the first game of his two-game suspension following his

arrest for failing to pay a speeding ticket.

Georgia (3-4 overall, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) took its

second straight lopsided win after four straight losses. The

Bulldogs beat Tennessee 41-14 last week.

Georgia introduced its new mascot, Uga VIII, a 13-month-old

white English bulldog, before the game.

Vanderbilt (2-4, 1-2) suffered its 15th loss in the last 16

games in the series.
