When Rodrigo Blankenship made an extra point in the third quarter of Saturday's game, he not only put Georgia up 28-6 but also put himself in the team's record books. 

Blankenship hit his 120th consecutive extra point against Vanderbilt, breaking the previous record of 119, set by Blair Walsh. 

Later in the third quarter, Blankenship made a 53-yard field goal to grow Georgia's lead to 31-6. 

The junior has hit 7-of-9 field goal attempts this season and is a perfect 29-of-29 on extra points. Blankenship was named a second-team preseason Associated Press All-American prior to the start of the season.
