Five Tennessee players to watch against Georgia

The (8-0) Tennessee Volunteers enter Saturday’s contest against the (8-0) Georgia Bulldogs as one of the hottest teams in the country. Why is Tennessee so good?

The Volunteers have scored a ton of points recently thanks to the unreal connection between quarterback Hendon Hooker and wide receiver Jalin Hyatt.

Georgia, the last team to hold Tennessee under 20 points, will be without top pass rusher Nolan Smith.

The Bulldogs overcame losing a top pass rusher during the middle of the season in 2021.

Can Kirby Smart and company do it again in 2022?

Georgia faces a big challenge against a red hot Tennessee team in the Bulldogs’ first game without Smith.

Fortunately, the Bulldogs will be at home, which should help aid the defense.
