Murray’s 2 TD passes lead Georgia past Vandy, 43-0

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.

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray (11) scrambles for yardage as Vanderbilt Commodores defensive tackle Colt Nichter (58) tries to grab him in the first half of the Georgia vs. Vandy homecoming game at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga., on Saturday Oct. 16, 2010.

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.
