SEC Suspends Two Georgia Players, One Vandy Player

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - The Southeastern Conference has suspended two Georgia players and one Vanderbilt player for the first halves of their next games as punishment for incidents in the Bulldogs' 33-28 win on Saturday.

The suspensions of Vanderbilt center Logan Stewart and two Georgia players, defensive tackle Kwame Geathers and defensive back Shawn Williams, were announced Wednesday.

The suspensions will be served when Vanderbilt plays Army this week and Georgia plays Florida in Jacksonville on Oct. 29.

Geathers hit Stewart after Stewart was called for a flagrant personal foul in the fourth quarter. Williams drew a flagrant personal foul in the third quarter.

The SEC made no ruling on Vanderbilt coach James Franklin or Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, who had a heated exchange on the field after the game.
