On Saturday, Georgia football will take on the Vols in Knoxville, marking the final regular-season SEC game for the Dawgs.
The Dawgs may have already clinched the SEC East title, and this game is historic. Georgia is trying to go a perfect 8-0 in SEC play for the first time in school history.
Since 2017, head coach Kirby Smart and his teams have gone 26-2 against SEC East foes, with those two losses being from South Carolina and Florida.
Tennessee beat Georgia in 2016 on that dreaded final second Hail Mary touchdown, but since then, the Dawgs have dominated the Vols.
While Tennessee has a lot of confidence coming into this week and an offense to match it, the Vols haven’t seen anything like this Georgia defense.
The Vols currently average 38.2 points, 217.1 rushing yards, 240.56 passing and 457.7 total offensive yards. They average 6.5 yards a play and have a quarterback that can cause problems in Hendon Hooker.
However, Georgia’s defense is the No.1 SEC defense and the No.2 total defense in the country for a reason — they suffocate opponents.
Even though last week’s numbers hurt the Dawgs a bit, they still average, giving up 6.56 points, 80.7 rushing, 151.11 passing, and 231.8 total offensive yards a game. Teams average just 3.8 yards a play, 2.6 yards a rush, and 5.06 yards a pass.
Each team that plays the Dawgs have had decent offenses with a few exceptions, but Georgia’s defense doesn’t care. They handle their business and bully opponents — it’s what they do.
Tennessee may be the last test to see how this defense can handle explosiveness, but these Dawgs will be ready for a battle, and they want to make history this season, so good luck. It could be a long day for the Volunteers.
Between Stetson Bennett and JT Daniels, these two guys can beat the Volunteers. They just must be aware of a few playmakers on defense. However, whoever wins this game will have the better rushing stats.
Score Prediction: Georgia wins 45-7
