Georgia Seeks Revenge Against Tennessee

Tennessee 2-3, 0-2 @ Georgia 4-1, 1-1
Sat 3:30 PM
Line: UGA -12

Both Georgia and Tennessee come into Saturday looking for a boost to their season. Georgia is coming of home loss to Alabama where they down by 31 at half. Tennessee has had too many struggles to list here, but could turn their season around with a win against Georgia.

Georgia Offense vs Tennessee Defense
Outside of the Alabama hickup, Georgia has played very well on offense. RB Knowshon Moreno is banged up, but is expected to go. The Bulldog offensive line had a rough outing last time so look to see how much they improved in the bye week. Tennessee's defense has been pretty good all year. They need their offense to help them out with field position though. I think the Vols need to try and get similar penetration that Alabama did to be successful.

Tennessee Offense vs Georgia Defense
HC Phil Fulmer will go with Nick Stephens at QB for the Vols. The most disappointing aspect of the Vols offense has been the lack of production from the ground game. Georgia would be wise to make Stephens beat them by stacking the box and taking away UT's preferred method of offense - running the ball.

Prediction
I think this game could go one of two ways. Either Tennessee comes out inspired like their backs are against the wall and keeps it close for 60 minutes. Or Georgia blows the doors off UT. I will go with the latter considering how I have seen UT play all year long.
