All set for a battle of undefeated heavyweight teams when #3 Georgia and #1 Tennessee face off on Saturday at the SEC on CBS Game of the Week, when the Bulldogs host Volunteers in a major conference, nationally significant game. Although Georgia have won five in a row in the series by an average margin of 28.6 points, Tennessee’s appearance under second-year coach Josh Hupel makes the Volunteers a threat to inflict Georgia’s first loss since November 7, 2020.

But there’s a reason the Bulldogs haven’t lost in nearly two calendar years, and beating the reigning national champions on their home field would be no small feat for the volunteers. Georgia ranks 2nd nationally in total offense, behind only Tennessee, but also ranks 4th in total defense. The Bulldogs are the elite on both sides of the pitch and prove to be dominant at their best.

Whoever wins is close to representing the SEC East in the SEC championship game and will have an open path to the college football playoffs. The loser will not be eliminated from CFP contention, but may need help to make a four-team field as a one-loss team that did not play in their conference title game.

These teams have played every year since 1992, but the stakes are rarely this high. While the border battle is always important for both teams, this season it’s even more important.

Three players to watch

Hendon Hooker, Tennessee QB: If ever there was a chance to create a Heisman moment, this is for the Tennessee quarterback. The redshirted senior threw for 2,338 yards with 21 touchdowns and just one interception while completing 71.2% of his passes in eight games. With 338 more yards and four touchdowns on the ground, he was the impetus for a program change. Hooker’s matchup against the Georgia defense is a must-see.

Brock Bowers, Georgia TE: The Georgia sophomore tight end is one of the toughest players to defend. While he is proficient in the center and in tight spaces, as he should be in the tight end with nimble passes, he also poses a threat on the open field with his speed and ability to rise above defenders to land contested moves. He scored as many touchdowns on the ground (three) as he did in the air, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken likes to get Bowers creative with football.

Replacement for Nolan Smith: Georgia announced this week that Smith will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle. The timing couldn’t have been worse given the scale of the Tennessee attack. So the question is, how will the Bulldogs replace him? The senior linebacker has been a major defensive player in Georgia for the past four seasons and is predicted to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. He leads the team in sacking and has had seven tackles for losses over the season. Among those who might have been called upon to play key roles in Smith’s absence were the younger M.J. Sherman, redshirt senior Robert Beal Jr., freshman Marvin Jones Jr., and sophomore Chaz Chambliss. All of them are highly advertised prospects in the past with different experience and are quite capable of playing quality football for Georgia. But in a game of this magnitude, it is undesirable to involve a new player in such an important role in defense.
