This Day in Georgia History

October 18, 1980

UGA Defeated Vanderbilt

Freshman sensation Herschel Walker dominated the game, and Georgia’s “Junkyard Dawg” defense produced a shutout as Georgia defeated Vanderbilt 41-0. Walker rushed for 283 yards and three touchdowns. In comparison, Vanderbilt’s entire team gained only 228 yards. The game was played before a homecoming crowd in Sanford Stadium in what would prove one more step towards the 1980 national championship.
