Tennessee comes limping into this game against No. 3 Georgia.
The Volunteers’ season began with a shocking loss to Georgia State in Neyland Stadium on Aug. 31. Since then they suffered an overtime loss at home against BYU and a 34-3 loss at Florida, in their most recent game. The only win was against Chattanooga, an FCS school.
Yet, Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said Sept. 25 to media members in Knoxville, “Our football team is 100 times better than it was this time last year.” That came four days after the Vols’ loss to the Gators.
Both teams are coming off a bye week.
