Defensively, the Vols have had a really solid year, and leading the way is linebacker Jeremy Banks.
Georgia’s offense must know where he is at all times because he leads the Vols in tackles, tackles for loss and sacks.
Banks has 74 tackles on the year with nine tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, one interception, one pass breakup and one quarterback hurry.
He does a little of everything and wants to hunt Stetson Bennett, or JT Daniels heads on Saturday. Banks has had three straight games with at least 12 tackles. He recorded 15 against Ole Miss, 12 against Alabama and 14 against Kentucky.
Tennessee finally has someone that can put pressure on a quarterback and make plays. Banks is impressive to watch, and Georgia’s offensive line needs to be ready for him.
Georgia needs to be able to score at will, and if they can stop Banks, that goal will be easier to achieve. He can make plays all over the field and has been a huge key in the Vols five wins this season.
Bennett and Daniels need to know where 33 is on the field at all times and to get rid of the ball when he comes barreling their way.
