NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jerron Seymour ran for a 13-yard touchdown with 2:53 left, and Vanderbilt rallied from a 13-point deficit by scoring 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter Saturday to upset No. 15 Georgia 31-27.

The Commodores (4-3, 1-3) got their first Southeastern Conference win this season and their first victory over Georgia in Nashville since 1991. They also snapped a six-game skid to the Bulldogs.

Georgia (4-3, 3-2) lost its second straight after failing to hold a 27-14 lead. Brendan Douglas fumbled after a catch with 1:59 left, and Aaron Murray was intercepted on the final play.

Torren McGaster started the comeback by recovering a fumbled punt late in the third quarter. Backup quarterback Patton Robinette ran for a 2-yard TD, and Carey Spear kicked a 40-yard field goal. Seymour put Vandy ahead a play after Georgia punter Collin Barber could only fall on a high snap at his own 13.
