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 .

BOSTON -- It resembles the symbol for infinity: a sideways S that Kara Goucher, Molly Huddle and other elite U.S. athletes suddenly are sporting on biceps, wrists and shins.The tattoos are temporary. But the campaign they represent is an all-out attempt to permanently purge competitive athletics of doping.People are getting the impression that everyones dirty, Goucher, a top-ranked marathoner based in Boulder, Colorado, told The Associated Press. We need to build the sport back up in a positive light.Thats the goal of the Clean Sport Collective , a new anti-doping initiative making a splash on social media.It launched this month with an aggressive campaign on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms. Olympians and amateurs alike have been publicly pledging to live, train and compete clean -- totally free of banned performance-enhancing drugs -- and taking selfies aimed at both inspiring and shaming track-and-field competitors, swimmers, cyclists, triathletes and others.Significantly, their bully pulpit is getting a boost from the corporate world: Brooks Running, Oiselle, Skechers and other companies have signed on as partners.Shanna Sparks Burnette, a former Division I collegiate runner, co-founded the Collective to get the focus off the cheaters and back onto athletes committed to drug-free achievement, whether at an Olympics or a local 5K.We really wanted to make a positive impact and change the narrative to celebrate the brands and all of the amazing and inspiring people who are doing it the right way, she said. The mentality is `win at all costs -- do whatever you can do to get ahead. As a society of people, we need to not do that to each other.Its been an especially tough year on the doping front.Russias track and field federation remains barred from international competition, and all but one member of the team was forced to sit out the Rio Olympics after independent investigators appointed by the World Anti-Doping Agency issued a damning report into widespread use of banned substances.Kenya, too, has been caught up in dozens of offenses implicating dopers who robbed clean athletes of winnings and glory. Last month, former Chicago and Boston Marathon champion Rita Jeptoo had her doping ban doubled to four years and was stripped of her Boston title from 2014, when shed been hailed as a hero for winning the iconic races first running since the deadly 2013 finish line bombings.Huddle, a two-time Olympian, said its gotten to the point wherre she wonders about some of the runners who outkick her in international competition.ddddddddddddSports are supposed to be inspiring to people watching them, but theres so much cynicism implanted now, said Huddle, who wore the Collectives tattoo on the back of her hand while finishing third at this months TCS New York City Marathon, her debut at the 26.2-mile distance.The upstate New York native, who now lives and trains in Providence, Rhode Island, is calling for a one-strike-youre-out approach to the doping scourge -- a lifetime ban, not just a brief suspension, for those who test positive once for a banned substance.That would put the fear in the back of an athletes mind: `What if I get caught? she said. Right now theres just not enough risk.The Clean Sport Collective means business. Pro athletes who take the pledge promise to donate $25,000 to the nonprofit if they ever test positive. Those opting for the extra step of certification have to get bloodwork and a biological passport that attests theyre drug-free.Corporate partners, likewise, commit to sponsor and invest in clean athletes only. And athletes of all abilities are using the hashtag #cleansportco to post about their vows.To Kevin Rutherford, CEO of Nuun Life, a Seattle-based sports hydration and energy company, that makes sense for both the finish line and the bottom line.There are very few brands that are saying something outwardly. I just think weve got to take a stand and say we wont stand for it -- well only work with clean athletes, he said. Theres been scandal after scandal. Its talked about, it hits the headlines, and then it goes away. How do we make it a conversation, a movement? How do we make doping the smoking of sports?Jesse Williams, global sports marketing manager at Brooks Running, said contracts for the elite athletes he sponsors all contain a clause forbidding the use of performance-enhancing drugs.If we dont hold our athletes to the highest standard, were not moving the sport forward, he said. If theres no punishment for the crime, whats the incentive to stop doing it?Huddle hopes the sport can clean up its act.Amazing still does exist, she said, and clean athletes are still getting it done.---Follow Bill Kole on Twitter at .
