Following an auspicious start, the 2016 Georgia Bulldogs are reeling after absorbing a 45-14 week four shellacking vs. Ole Miss.
Conversely, fresh off a statement victory against Florida, Tennessee’s confidence is soaring.
When these SEC East foes collide Saturday at Sanford Stadium, the undefeated Tennessee Volunteers will enjoy favorable odds.
Though 3-1, the Bulldogs’ record is a moderate misnomer. Case in point: During a week two nail-biter, #25 ranked Georgia narrowly avoided calamity by eking past humble Nicholls State, 26-24.
Opposite solid competition in Ole Miss, the visibly misaligned Dawgs couldn’t do the same. Tennessee should replicate the Rebels’ rout of UGA.
Tennessee is riding an upward trajectory as one of CFB’s most dominant teams this season. The Volunteers opened eyes nationally after a commanding rally-job against Florida.
Led by quarterback Joshua Dobbs’ sterling second-half, the #12 ranked Vols scorched Florida’s vaunted defense to the tune of 38 consecutive points.
With wins over Ohio, Florida and Virginia Tech, Tennessee has a much stronger resume than UGA heading into Saturday’s tilt.
Entering week 5, Georgia’s impressive season-opening romp of UNC feels like a long-faded memory.
The Bulldogs struggled profusely against Nicholls State and Missouri before being picked apart by an uncertain Ole Miss squad.
Amid Freshman QB Jacob Eason’s struggles, (16/36 completions, %5 QB rating) UGA may do well to hand the starting reigns back to Greyson Lambert.
In a 38-31 loss to the Vols last season, Lambert threw for 2 touchdowns and 279 yards.
Of the concerns currently weighing on Kirby Smart’s mind, the QB controversy, defensive woes, and Nick Chubb’s diminished production top the list.
Chubb was held to 57 yards on 12 carries Saturday. Meanwhile, in a 45-14 defeat, the Bulldogs’ defense was abysmal, surrendering 330 passing yards and 180 on the ground.

Saturday’s match-up between UGA and UT tells the story of two teams sprinting in diametrically opposed directions.
Given each teams’ performance last week, it’s difficult to foresee Tennessee struggling to gain the upper hand.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Tennessee -2.5
The Volunteers will attempt to pad their SEC East lead before back-to-back showdowns with SEC West rivals Texas A&M and Alabama.
With no games remaining against ranked SEC East competition following Saturday’s soiree opposite #25 Georgia, with a win, Tennessee can breathe a sigh of relief.
Meanwhile, spiraling UGA will look to recapture its brief week 1 swagger this weekend. Unfortunately, Tennessee will likely prevent that from happening.
