(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)The SEC is not a forgiving league. Tennessee knows that all too well, and it remains true with the SEC favorite Georgia Bulldogs coming to town on Saturday.Georgia continues to roll along in the 2019 season. When we last checked in with the No. 3 Dawgs, they were securing a solid, if not overly impressive 23-17 win over Notre Dame in Athens.Kirby Smart’s team didn’t totally outclass the Fighting Irish, but any win against a top 10 team looks good. Georgia controlled throughout, and Notre Dame didn’t get a lot going until the fourth quarter.Tennessee would love for its main problem to be “not looking super sharp against Notre Dame.” The Vols opened the year with losses to Georgia State and BYU at home, and was blown out by Florida 34-3 in their last game. Their sole win came against FCS squad Chattanooga. These two teams, led by former Nick Saban defensive coordinators, seem to be heading in very different directions. It wouldn’t be shocking to see them wind up on either end of the SEC East standings at year’s end.Game 5 Trailer | Our Time#ATD #GoDawgs— Georgia Football (@GeorgiaFootball) October 4, 2019Details for tomorrow night’s game:Game Time: 7:00 p.m. ETChannel: ESPNSpread: Georgia -24.5Over/Under: 51.5Announcers: Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge, Holly RoweGeorgia is a four-score favorite, which feels right. Tennessee wasn’t even competitive with a Florida team missing its starting quarterback, Feleipe Franks, due to injury.One would think a return to Neyland Stadium would help, but that certainly didn’t affect the outcome of the Georgia State and BYU games. The Panthers’ win, even with Tennessee’s continued struggles, is still one of the most surprising results of the season. Georgia State isn’t exactly pushing for the Group of Five spot in the New Year’s Six.ESPN’s SP+ has Georgia as a very well balanced team, at No. 4 overall. The metric ranks the team eighth in offense, and 12th in both defense and special teams.Tennessee is down at 54th, and the 84th ranked offense will have particular trouble putting up points against UGA.last_img
