The Tennessee Volunteers come into this matchup with a 1-3 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the Florida Gators, 34-3. QB Jarrett Guarantano struggled to get much going through the air for the Tennessee Volunteers as he threw for 107 yards and 2 interceptions.

Theo Jackson and Alontae Taylor had good games from the secondary as they each contributed an interception for the Volunteers.
The Georgia Bulldogs should come off the bye week feeling confident as they are coming off a top 10 win against Notre Dame, but the same can’t be said for the Volunteers as they have been awful this season. The Georgia Bulldogs have been very good on both sides of the ball, but their defense has been very impressive as they forced a good QB in Ian Book into 2 interceptions last game. The Tennessee Volunteers were clobbered on the road against Florida especially at QB as Guarantano and Maurer combined for 151 yards and 3 interceptions. The Bulldogs have just as good as a defense as the Gators, and they should do similar damage against a bad Tennessee team which will put Fromm and the offense in a very good position to put up points. Final Score Prediction, Georgia Bulldogs win and cover ATS 45-14.
