NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Brandon Coutu kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired to help No. 24 Georgia overcome a 10-point halftime deficit and beat Vanderbilt 20-17 on Saturday night.

Knowshon Moreno rushed for a career-high 157 yards in his first start for Georgia (5-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference), who danced on the Vanderbilt (3-3, 1-3) star at midfield after Coutu's kick sailed through the uprights.

Vandy's Cassen Jackson-Garrison fumbled 7 yards short of the goal line, setting up the Bulldogs' winning drive.

Matthew Stafford had 201 yards passing for Georgia, including 32-yard touchdown pass to Sean Bailey.

Sean Walker caught a touchdown pass and ran for another for Vanderbilt, who didn't score a point in the second half. Walker caught a 16-yard touchdown pass, originally ruled incomplete, to give the Commodores a 17-7 lead in the third quarter. Walker bobbled the ball twice, but appeared to control it before falling out-of-bounds in the back of the end zone.

Vanderbilt essentially found themselves playing a road game with Georgia fans painting Vanderbilt Stadium red in a rare sellout.
