Georgia shuts out Tennessee 41-0

Although there is only one loss between them, Tennessee and No. 7 Georgia appear to be headed in different directions.

Sony Michel, Chubb's close friend and roommate, said he sees him looking at this one as just another road game. That said, NCAA betting fans might want to mulch over the spread.

Things are going to be uncomfortable, that's for sure.

"It's loud, loud, loud", said Smart, who coached every other year in the stadium for the Alabama-Tennessee game. It doesn't matter. No team cares what you did last week. "They're right on top of you, and they've got two people in every one seat".

Tennessee (3-1) is coming off an overall lackluster performance against MA, but defensively the Vols played well. The two have scored 9 of Tennessee's 15 offensive touchdowns this season, 6 rushing for Kelly and 3 receiving for Callaway. Many after the game - including Jones - questioned the Volunteers' energy and passion. "So any time you go on the road in the SEC it presents a lot of challenges from a crowd noise standpoint, and they always do a tremendous job of being really loud up there".

"I think last week was a big step for us", Phillips said.

"I thought it was lackluster".

Georgia is 4-0 and has thrived under true freshman quarterback Jake Fromm, who won at Notre Dame.

Georgia's defense has been making a statement all season.

The Vols totaled just 142 yards of offense and averaged a mere 2.7 yards per play. Defensive tackle Trenton Thompson has been a beast stopping the run, leading the Bulldogs' to No. 16 in the nation in total defense.

Georgia's balance and playmaking ability are factors that Shoop said makes them the most risky offensive team Tennessee has seen so far this season.

For example, linebacker Colton Jumper led the Vols with 2 ½ sacks last week and has a team-high 3 ½ sacks this year. Especially when you're a team like Georgia that is now being talked about viewed as a possible playoff contender. "Interesting." Then they'd start to play, and when they got around to playing they were incredible. I told you all that repeatedly and I don't change that. But they have good defensive players and we'll learn from them. In the win, the Bulldogs rushed for 203 yards on 42 carries.

Unfortunately, starting quarterback Quinten Dormady just wasn't up to the task.

With sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason on in relief in the fourth quarter, a short UGA drive reached the Tennessee two-yard-line before the Vols halted it. Back-up kicker David Marvin came on to boot a 19-yard field goal with 5:34 left to provide the final margin.

Next up, Georgia heads to Vanderbilt to face the Commodores at 12 p.m. on October 7.

The heartbreaking loss to Florida two weeks ago was explainable too, even if Tennessee could have and should have won the game in regulation with better execution.

The Georgia Bulldogs will take on the Tennessee Volunteers in Week 5 of the college football schedule on Saturday, start time at 3:30 PM ET, at Neyland Stadium, Knoxville, TN.
