Tennessee vs Georgia features one SEC team trying to rebound and another trying to retain momentum. Here are five Volunteers to watch for against the Dawgs.

After a thrilling victory over the Florida Gators, it’s time for the Vols to look ahead towards the Tennessee vs Georgia game.

This was always the second most important game for Tennessee in the regular season, and right now it’s the most important.

Also, it’s an extremely dangerous game.

Tennessee is going into Athens riding sky-high after beating Florida, and given how badly the Bulldogs struggled in their loss to the Ole Miss Rebels last week, the Vols could easily be looking ahead.

However, this is a very talented team in its first year under Kirby Smart. Don’t forget that the Vols barely pulled out a victory over them at home last year, and Smart didn’t change too much schematically from Mark Richt.

So Tennessee will have its hands full on the road against a second straight Top 25 team. Once again, there are key players who have to step up and lead this team.

Georgia definitely has weaknesses that Tennessee can exploit. However, it’s also good enough to give the Vols hell from start to finish. And Tennessee has already shown this year that it has trouble focusing in some games.

They can’t let that happen this week. The Dawgs are as difficult an opponent as the Gators. So the leaders have to step up.

Here are the five Vols to watch for in the Tennessee vs Georgia game.
