Hutson Mason threw two touchdown passes to Chris Conley, Todd Gurley ran for 163 yards with two scores and No. 13 Georgia beat Vanderbilt 44-17 on Saturday.

Georgia (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) used Gurley's scoring runs of 4 and 14 yards and Mason's first touchdown pass to Conley to take a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.

Vanderbilt (1-4, 0-4) remained winless in the SEC.

Gurley's first touchdown run, a 5-yarder, was out of the wildcat formation. He added a 14-yarder later in the opening quarter for a 14-0 lead.

Another direct snap to Gurley in the second quarter produced a twist. Instead of keeping the ball for a run as Vanderbilt's defense expected, Gurley stopped and threw a wobbly left-handed pass to tight end Jeb Blazevich, who was wide open for the 50-yard completion.

It was Georgia's longest completion of the season.
