Georgia football will meet the most explosive offense they’ll face to date on Saturday in the Tennessee Volunteers.
Georgia is looking for their 10th straight win while the Vols are looking to stay above .500.
While it may seem weird to put explosive and Tennessee in the same sentence again, it’s true. What Vols’ head coach Josh Heupel has already put in place is working, and it’s something the Dawgs cannot overlook.
Tennessee averages 38 points and 457.7 yards of offense a game. They are well-coached on every side of the ball and have given teams fits.
The Vols have a lot of playmakers, but these six guys are the ones Georgia football must stop to stay perfect on the year.
However, the Dawgs are on a four-game win streak and looking to make it five after Tennessee got luckier than a four-leaf clover in 2016, winning on a Hail Mary throw.
The last two times Georgia traveled to Knoxville, they won 43-14 in 2019 and 41-0 in 2017.
Both of those times, the Dawgs shut down the Vols and came out of Knoxville unscathed. Georgia’s offenses flourished, and the defense dominated.
This year is different though, while Georgia has had talented defenses in the past, none of them are quite like this one. Georgia’s defense is on a mission, and their next victim happens to be Tennessee. The Dawgs haven’t given up more than 13 points all season, and they aren’t going to this weekend either.
Georgia has a defense that can suffocate opponents, and while teams have come into their games confident that this group isn’t as good as the media says — they leave with their tail between their legs.
Then the Dawgs have an equally productive offense averaging 38.4 points a game, so the Vols defense better get ready as well. Georgia is prepared to test themselves against an explosive team, and the fans will find out what this defense is made of come Saturday night.
Here are three offensive and three defensive players on Tennessee’s team that Georgia must find a way to slow down to stay perfect on the season.
