The Tennessee-Georgia series dates back to 1899.

The two teams have played annually since 1992.

The 1936 matchup was historic, marking Robert Neyland’s only game at Georgia as Tennessee’s head coach.

He served as the Vols’ head coach during three stints (1926–34, 1936–40, 1946–52), compiling a 173–31–12 record and winning four national championships.

Tennessee defeated the Bulldogs, 46-0, in 1936, the Vols’ largest margin of victory during the series.

Neyland faced Georgia twice during his tenure as Tennessee’s head coach.

He won both games against the Bulldogs, guiding Tennessee to a 32-0 home win in 1937.

Prior to the 1936 matchup, Tennessee and Georgia did not play against each other since 1925.

Following the 1937 game, the Vols did not play Georgia until 1968.

Tennessee finished its 1936 campaign with a 6-2-2 record, while the Bulldogs went 5-4-1.

Tennessee’s Phil Dickens was drafted by the NFL’s Chicago Cardinals following the 1936 season.

He was selected in the sixth round of the NFL draft (52nd overall).
