UPDATED: Todd Grantham goes nuts as Georgia holds off Vandy

Sometimes football is a weird game. The universe tilts and teams that used to be good aren't and teams that normally aren't....are.

None of that happened in Saturday nights Georgia/Vanderbilt game.

Georgia was playing to stay in first place in the weak SEC East and Vandy was looking for their 1st win in SEC play. In fact, Vandy was looking for their 1st TD in 3 weeks, Georgia hadn't been giving up anyone.

Georgia won the game, 33-28. The game featured 3 missed field goals by Georgia, a kickoff return for a TD by Vandy, a blocked punt by Georgia and inexplicably, Georgia unable to run out the clock at the end of the game and allowing Vandy to block a punt with less than a minute to go that nearly led to the Commodores winning the game.

What happened afterwards was far worse.

Somehow Vanderbilt Head Coach James Franklin and Georgia Defensive Coordinator Todd Grantham got into a rather angry shouting and threatening match. That same incident led to a near or arguably a real brawl at the end too.

Franklin said since he couldn't find UGA Coach Mark Richt in the crowd, he went to congratulate one of the Assistant's. That assistant was Grantham, who was angry about something, though nobody is sure exactly what it was.

You can bet some discipline will be involved.

Here are your game highlights (thanks Fox Sports South):
