No. 7 Georgia vs. Tennessee preview and prediction

In preseason media predictions, Georgia was voted to win the SEC Least, I mean East, and the Dawgs had the Vols' number Saturday in Neyland Stadium.

Georgia showed it may have the ability to do that - perhaps in this year's SEC Championship Game - if it can continue its winning ways. Bulldogs lead 10-0 in the first quarter.

"When he speaks, they listen", Smart said.

"I think we did good against Mississippi State in pass protection, but we can do better, a lot better", Georgia center Lamont Gaillard said. They'd beaten the Bulldogs on a Hail Mary at the horn last season at Sanford Stadium. If there's a team that can challenge Alabama in the SEC, this is it. Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm threw for 201 yards on just nine completions, two of which went for touchdowns. The junior has 450 rushing yards and six touchdowns so far this season on 81 carries.

The Bulldogs got 294 yards on the ground from Nick Chubb, Sony Michel & Co while holding the Vols to just 62. In the receiving end, Brandon Edward Johnson posted 123 yards in seven receptions while Byrd added 21 yards and a touchdown in two catches. Sophomore Jacob Eason checked in midway through the fourth quarter. Considering that, the best way to stop the Vols' pass rush will be to get good yardage on first downs and limit passing-downs altogether.

Their offense is inconsistent and has to play a defense that ranks 13th nationally giving up 2643 yards per game. Brian Herrien's one-yard dive with 12 minutes left and a David Marvin 19-yard field goal completed the Georgia scoring with 5:34 remaining. Georgia whipped State 31-3 after putting up over 400 total yards of offense.

"That's awesome", Smart said. Other than that road trip to Bama, the Vols should still have a chance to win every other game.

After two near misses, Tennessee got the interception it had been eyeing when Justin Martin collected a pass from Fromm on the Georgia 27. Jones calls the Bulldogs' offensive line one of the most improved aspects of Georgia's team.

First play of the drive for Dormady and he's picked off by J.R. Reed.

Tennessee is seeking its first victory over a top-10 team since beating No. 10 Georgia 51-33 in 2006.

Saturday started out on a happy note; VFL and National Football League legend Peyton Manning participated in the Vol Walk with Coach Phillip Fulmer and others.

The Yellow Jackets have been impressive early on, going 2-1 straight up and 3-0 against the spread in their first three games, thanks to their triple option attack which leads the nation in rushing at a whopping 393.7 yards per game. "It's weird, I've played against them as much as any team I've coached against". "During halftime, I didn't need to go over and see the defensive players, they had it under control, they were doing the adjustments, doing a really nice job so give credit where credit is due".
