NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - James Franklin has talked with Georgia coach Mark Richt about a postgame confrontation with Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and is leaving the rest to the Southeastern Conference.

The SEC tells The Associated Press the league is looking into what happened.

Franklin and Grantham had a heated exchange after Georgia pulled out a 33-28 win on Saturday night when the Vanderbilt coach went looking to shake hands with Richt.

The Vandy coach said Monday he talked with Richt on Sunday morning. Franklin says things got out of hand after an emotional game and they sent the usual weekly report to the SEC office on the game.

It was a weekend of bad postgame behavior, which included the highly publicized incident between San Francisco's Jim Harbaugh and Detroit's Jim Schwartz.
