For the fifth time in the past six seasons, Georgia and Tennessee will square off in the CBS afternoon slot. The lone exception was 2014 when the game played at noon. This game will be Georgia’s first home SEC game of the year. Last year, Georgia went to Knoxville and got its 800th win with a 41-0 victory. This win marked the second largest margin of victory in the series and the biggest ever in Knoxville. The first was 44-0 in 1981 in Athens. Georgia’s defense dealt the Vols their first shutout in 23 years, a span of 289 games dating back to 1994. The Bulldogs collected 378 total yards on 72 plays.  Jake Fromm threw for one touchdown and ran in for two scores. Tyrique McGhee notched an interception on the Vols first play of the game. D’Andre Walker blocked a punt as both highlights eventually led to points.

The Bulldogs 23 touchdowns have included 19 from the offense, two from the defense and two from the special teams. The latest non-offensive touchdowns came from last Saturday’s 43-29 win over Missouri.  Georgia led the Tigers 20-7 at halftime without scoring an offensive touchdown. The Bulldogs first score came from true freshman Tyson Campbell stripped the ball and ran it in for a touchdown. It was his first career forced fumble at Georgia.  Eric Stokes blocked a punt in the second quarter and ran it in for another score. These two scores marked Georgia’s 9th and 10th defensive/special teams score in Kirby Smart’s era. In fact, both of Georgia’s first touchdowns in each of its SEC games came from the defense. It was also the first time since 2015 at Tennessee that Georgia had registered a special teams touchdown and a defensive score in the same game.
