Georgia makes light work of Tennessee in Big-time Game
By Justin Gray
This game had been hyped up and headlined for weeks now, lots believing Tennessee would hand Georgia their first loss. This game had major playoff implications as both teams came in undefeated, but one thing was shown, don’t bet against the defending national champions.
In November is when great teams show up and the frauds are left behind. Georgia has been here and done this before while Tennessee is just getting started, so the Dawgs had to show them who was the better team and program.
Georgia received the first kickoff and in a few plays they fumbled. The Dawg defense came up with a huge stop of the explosive Tennessee offense and they had to settle for a field goal. When the offense got the ball back they made sure to make up for their mistake taking only five plays to drive it down the field and cap it off with a QB Stetson Bennett 13-yard touchdown run putting the Dawgs up 7-3.
The teams would trade punts before the Dawgs offense got going again as Bennett hit WR Ladd McConkey in stride for a 37-yard touchdown. The defense forced another punt and then the offense added on. It took the offense five plays including a huge one to Kenny Mcintosh which drove it down to the five-yard line. From there Bennett hit Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint for the touchdown and it was 21-3 before you could blink. Both teams added a field goal and it was 24-6 at the half.
After the half, the game was just about running out the clock, because it was flooding and Georgia didn’t want anything crazy to happen. Georgia added a field goal and gave up a late touchdown for the final score of 27-13. The Dawgs came out and took care of business and now with a win this week they will clinch a spot in the SEC Championship. This week the Dawgs should be ranked number one in the College Football Playoff Rankings as they head to Mississippi State to take on the other Bulldogs, game time is set for 7:00 P.M.
