It hasn't always been pretty, but No. 1 Georgia prepares to play Vanderbilt in an SEC on CBS showdown on a 23-game winning streak and winners of 39 of its last 40 games. Quarterback Carson Beck has stepped in for Stetson Bennett and has the fourth-most passing yards (1,886) in college football over the Bulldogs' 6-0 start. Vanderbilt, meanwhile, has lost 33 of its last 36 SEC games. However, Georgia has trailed in the second half in two of three SEC games this season, so could Vanderbilt shock the Bulldogs?
The SEC on CBS contest will kick off at noon ET on Saturday from FirstBank Stadium in Nashville, Tenn.

Why Georgia can cover
Few teams can contain Georgia tight end Brock Bowers, a likely high first-round selection if the true junior declares for the 2024 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound target has three games of at least 150 yards over the last two seasons, including reeling in seven receptions for 152 yards and a touchdown against TCU in the CFP National Championship game last season.
Bowers is averaging eight receptions for 136.7 yards with four total touchdowns over his last three games. Vanderbilt couldn't contain Florida tight end Arlis Boardingham, who had seven receptions for 99 yards and two touchdowns last week. With Georgia scoring at least 45 points in four of six games this season, including a 51-13 win over Kentucky last weekend, the Bulldogs' offense may be too hot at the moment for Vanderbilt to keep up with. History doesn't bode well for the Commodores either with Georgia winning by a combined score of 117-0 in their matchups over the last two seasons. See picks at SportsLine.
Why Vanderbilt can cover
Georgia is 1-4-1 against the spread over its 6-0 start to the 2023 college football season. Despite their inability to cover a spread before a 51-13 win over No. 20 Kentucky last week, the Bulldogs have been at least a 27-point favorite in four of six games. Vanderbilt has scored at least 14 points in all three of its SEC games this season and is averaging 21 points per game in conference play. That could be just enough offense to cover a 32.5-point spread.
Part of the large spreads and even Georgia's No. 1 ranking come from reputation. As the two-time defending national champions, the Bulldogs' spreads can be inflated based on public perception, and although Vanderbilt is 3-33 over its last 36 games, the Commodores have been more competitive this year. Their three SEC losses have been by an average of 19.3 points to quality programs in Florida, Kentucky and Missouri. Vanderbilt, led by receiver Will Sheppard with eight touchdowns, can keep the game close enough to remain within four scores and make Georgia's ATS record even worse, although the Bulldogs' overall record likely won't lose a zero.
