Tennessee hosted the Missouri Tigers last week and cruised to a 35-12 win. The Volunteers led 14-0 early in the second quarter and 21-6 at the half. The closest Missouri could get was within eight points as the Volunteer defense completely shutdown the Tigers offense. Quarterback Jarrett Guarantano threw for 190 yards, one touchdown, and added an additional two touchdowns on the ground. Running back Eric Gray ran the ball 16 times for 105 yards and one touchdown, and Ty Chandler added 19 more rushed for 90 yards and one touchdown.
Last time out, the Georgia Bulldogs hosted the, then #7 ranked, Auburn Tigers and came away with a dominant 27-6 win. Georgia scored the first 24 points of this game and did not allow the Tigers to get into the endzone all night. The Bulldogs were led by running back Zamir White who carried the ball 19 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Stetson Bennett threw for 240 yards and one touchdown and wide receiver Kearis Jackson hauled in nine receptions for 147 yards.
Series History: Georgia has won the last three meetings between the two schools and now leads the all-time series 24-23-2.
Football Predictions: I think this is going to be a low scoring game, so I am going to take the points and Tennessee +13.5.
