There are some big games on the college football season every single week, but perhaps none bigger than what’s at stake on Saturday. The Georgia Bulldogs host the Tennessee Volunteers as the two top-ranked teams in the country are set to face off.

Tennessee has been a huge surprise so far this season, as no one had them going 8-0 through the first eight games. The Volunteers already have a huge win on the year after knocking off Alabama at home.

Georgia is the defending champion of the College Football Playoff and they picked up where they left off. The Bulldogs have been blowing out opponents on a weekly basis up to this point.

Tennessee vs. Georgia Preview, Stats and Trends

The Tennessee Volunteers come into week 10 scoring 49 points per game and they are able to score points in a hurry. Tennessee is averaging 200 rushing yards per game, but they do most of the damage through the air.

Quarterback Hendon Hooker is having a monster season for the Volunteers, as he has thrown for 2338 yards and 21 touchdowns. Tennessee is facing a good defense in this game, but they have the ability to score on anyone.

The Volunteers are allowing 21 points per game, but they are more concerned with scoring points on offense.

Georgia is coming into this game, allowing just 10.5 points per game, which is the second-best mark in the country. The Bulldogs are holding opponents to just 85.5 rushing yards per game and that defensive front can take control of this one.

Quarterback Stetson Bennett has thrown for 2349 yards and nine touchdowns this season. He can also make plays with his legs. Georgia is averaging 202 rushing yards per game and they will look to establish that attack in this one.

Georgia doesn’t want to get into a shootout with Tennessee, but they are talented enough to win that type of game if needed.

Tennessee vs. Georgia Predictions

Tennessee won’t be afraid of this match-up with Georgia, as they already have some confidence from upsetting Alabama. The Volunteers have an offense that is just so explosive and they will find some holes in that Georgia defense.

The Bulldogs are another team that is no stranger to playing in big games and that defense is just so impressive. Georgia is going to get the one-stop that is needed to come away with a huge win in this SEC showdown.

Tennessee Volunteers vs. Georgia Bulldogs

Stetson Bennett threw for two touchdowns and ran for another to lift No. 3 Georgia to a 44-21 victory over 14th-ranked Tennessee on Saturday in a Southeastern Conference contest.

The Bulldogs' defense held the Volunteers off the scoreboard in the second half.

Georgia (3-0, 3-0) allowed only 71 yards and four first downs after halftime, erasing a 21-17 halftime deficit with 27 straight unanswered points. The Bulldogs held the Volunteers (2-1, 2-1) to minus-1 yard on 27 rushes.

Bennett completed 16 of 27 passes for 238 yards with no interceptions, more than overcoming an early gaffe that provided Tennessee with a 7-0 lead just 43 seconds into the game.

A bad center snap bounced from the Georgia 30 toward the goal line, and Bennett wasn't able to cover it around the 5. Another teammate failed to secure it in the end zone and linebacker Kivon Bennett fell on it for the easy score.

The Bulldogs responded with the tying score on a 1-yard run by Zamir White with 6:38 left in the quarter, set up by Bennett's 29-yard connection with Kenny McIntosh.

Bennett gave Georgia its first lead on an 8-yard run just 3:18 into the second quarter, but the Vols equalized when Jarrett Guarantano fired a 36-yard touchdown pass to Josh Palmer at the 6:40 mark.

Following Jack Podlesny's 47-yard field goal with 4:49 left, Tennessee answered less than two minutes later as Guarantano and Palmer hooked up for a 27-yard scoring strike. That gave the Vols, who entered the game with an eight-game winning streak dating back to last year, the lead at halftime.

The second half was all Bulldogs.

Podlesny connected on field goals of 34 and 51 yards in the first five minutes of the third quarter to give them the lead for good.

Bennett made it 30-21 with a 21-yard touchdown pass to Kearis Jackson.

Two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including a strip-sack and 20-yard return by Monty Rice, turned it into a rout.

Guarantano completed 23 of 36 passes for 215 yards with an interception. He was sacked five times.
