ATHENS, Ga. -- Derek Mason finally picked up the sort of victory that should ease some of the heat on the Vanderbilt coach.Just the opposite for Georgias Kirby Smart, who is facing plenty of scrutiny after a stunning loss to the Commodores.Sickening, Smart said.Vanderbilt claimed its first Southeastern Conference road win in Masons three seasons as coach, upsetting Georgia 17-16 on Khari Blasingames 2-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and a huge fourth-down stop late in the game Saturday.The victory set off a wild celebration as the Vanderbilt players raced over to Sanford Stadiums famous hedges to celebrate with a small group of black-and-gold-clad fans.I told our young men this morning that if we wanted to do something epic, we needed to make sure we took the fight to them, Mason said.For Vanderbilt (3-4, 1-3), it was only the third win over Georgia in the last 22 meetings between the SEC East rivals. Mason had dropped his first nine league road games.You saw a football team committed to doing one thing, and thats going on the road and getting a win, Mason said. We also talked about a new season, the second half of the season. We cant do anything about whats behind us, but we could do something about what is in front of us.The Bulldogs (4-3, 2/3 SEC) held a commanding lead in total yards, 421-171, but special-teams blunders doomed the home team. Not exactly what Georgia was expecting when it fired longtime coach Mark Richt and brought in Smart , who had been Nick Sabans defensive coordinator at Alabama.Its embarrassing, and Im sick to my stomach, Smart said. I take full responsibility for it.Georgia went ahead for the first time early in the third quarter on Jacob Easons 17-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Nauta. The Bulldogs added their third field goal, stretching the lead to 16-10 with just under 14 minutes remaining.But Vanderbilt responded with its only extended drive of the game, going 75 yards on eight plays to reclaim the lead when Blasingame powered over with 9:43 to go. The big play was a screen pass on third-and-12 that Ralph Webb took for a 37-yard gain to the Bulldogs 11.It wasnt pretty, Vandy quarterback Kyle Shurmur, but that just isnt our style, I guess.Georgias final drive was extended by Easons 23-yard pass to Terry Godwin on fourth-and-13, but the Bulldogs couldnt convert when facing fourth-and-1 at the Vandy 41. In a puzzling move, the Bulldogs didnt go with either of their star runners -- Nick Chubb and Sony Michel -- and instead pitched the ball to receiver Isaiah McKenzie after he dropped back into the tailback position.McKenzie was thrown down about a foot shy of the first-down marker by Vandy linebacker Zach Cunningham, who finished with a staggering 19 tackles.We felt good about the play, McKenzie said. A guy came from the blind side and tackled me. He made a good play.THE TAKEAWAYVanderbilt: The victory will take some of the heat off Mason, but the Commodores have yet to address their anemic offense. Other than one impressive drive, they barely moved the ball against Georgia.Georgia: The offensive play-calling will surely come under scrutiny after the Bulldogs rushed for only 75 yards against Vanderbilt and didnt turn to their top runners when the game was on the line.SPECIAL TEAMSVanderbilts first 10 points were set up by special teams.Darius Sims returned the opening kickoff 95 yards, setting up Webbs 1-yard TD run that gave the Commodores a 7-0 lead just 22 seconds into the game. On the second-half kickoff, Georgias Reggie Davis made the catch along the sideline and inadvertently stepped out of the bounds at the 3. The Bulldogs went three-and-out, Kalija Lipscomb returned the punt 17 yards and Vandy didnt even need to make a first down to set up Tommy Openshaws 38-yard field goal.Smart called it a comedy of errors.BOUNCING BACK.Eason threw for a career-high 346 yards on 27-of-40 passing, just six days after the freshman turned in a 29-yard performance against South Carolina that was Georgias fewest passing yards in a game since 1990.UP NEXTVanderbilt: The Commodores return home next Saturday to face Tennessee State. It will be only the second home game in six weeks for Vanderbilt.Georgia: After the off week, the Bulldogs return to action Oct. 29 against Florida in the annual Cocktail Party showdown at Jacksonville, Florida.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .

The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. Johnny Damon Jersey . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. http://www.wholesaleyankeesjerseys.com/giancarlo-stanton-jersey/ . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Reggie Jackson Jersey . The phone hearing is scheduled for 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt.

A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. The Big 12 can hope for an undefeated showdown in Morgantown on the same weekend the other Power Five conferences play their championship games.For now, the Big 12 is in a precarious position, already considered by most an afterthought in the College Football Playoff conversation.If nobody in the Big 12 gets in, its because theres four other teams that are supposed to be better, TCU coach Gary Patterson said, reminding everyone that the league does still have two undefeated teams.Only No. 13 Baylor (4-0), the leagues highest-ranked team , and West Virginia (3-0) are still without a loss. And they dont meet until the first Saturday in December when the Big 12, which resumes its title game in 2017, wraps up the regular season on the championship weekend for the ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC.Even though TCU won its Big 12 opener, the Horned Frogs didnt make it through their non-conference schedule undefeated. Oklahoma State has already lost twice.While Oklahoma gets ready for its conference opener at TCU this Saturday with a clean slate in pursuit of the 10th Big 12 title -- the Sooners were the overwhelming preseason favorite to win -- there are no do-overs for two September losses that pretty much knocked them out of contention for a second straight playoff appearance.Acting Baylor head coach Jim Grobe said it is too early to declare the Bears, or anyone else, a favorite to win the conference title.We need to not only see our team play a few more times, but obviously see the other teams play, before you start to draw a bead on who the stronger teams are, he said.So just how did the Big 12 already get to this point, and whats to come with only conference games left the next 10 weekends:NOT SO POWERFULThe Big 12 went 2-6 against teams from the other Power Five conferences. There was that double-overtime victory by Texas over then-No. 10 Notre Dame in the season opener, but the Fighting Irish have since lost to Michigan State and Duke, falling to 1/3 and out of playoff contention.SOONER SETBACKSOklahoma last season was the first Big 12 team to get iinto the playoff , and with a No.dddddddddddd3 preseason ranking, the Sooners were expected to be in the mix again in 2016. But they opened with a 10-point loss in Houston and are coming off a 45-24 home loss to Ohio State. After a week off, their focus is now on winning another conference title.Sometimes youre not as far off as people want to project that you are, coach Bob Stoops said.BEAR MARKETBaylor is 4-0 for the fourth consecutive season, a program first, and the Bears should still be undefeated when they go to Texas on the final Saturday of October. After going to Iowa State on Saturday, they have an open date before hosting Kansas and then another open date. They also have home games against TCU and Kansas State, a trip to Oklahoma and a neutral site game against Texas Tech before the finale in West Virginia.UP IN THE MOUNTAINSWhile unranked, West Virginia is undefeated, including the season opener over Missouri and last weekend against BYU. Now in their fifth Big 12 season, maybe the Mountaineers are ready to challenges for the conference title.Id like to think so. I think our team believes that, coach Dana Holgorsen said. Weve got confidence in our abilities and we think were pretty good. In addition to Baylor, WVU is home against TCU and Oklahoma State.FORT WORTH FRENZYHad No. 21 TCU finished off its rally at home against Arkansas, the Horned Frogs would be right in the middle of the playoff conversation and maybe in the top 10. While losing three of four to Oklahoma since joining the Big 12, those losses were by a combined 11 points. TCU gets both Oklahoma teams at home, but has to go to West Virginia and Baylor.COWBOY DOWNOklahoma State was on the verge of taking the lead in its Big 12 opener at Baylor last week before a fumble, and the Bears then drove 99 yards for the final score in a 35-24 victory. The Cowboys, who started 10-0 last season, will have to play four of their last six games on the road.
