Georgia will play at night for the third time this season when the No. 3 Bulldogs travel to Tennessee on Oct. 5.

Tennessee (1-3, 0-2) is struggling in its second season under former Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. The Volunteers were blown out by Florida 34-3 this past Saturday in Gainesville.

Both Georgia and Tennessee are off this weekend.
