Saturday, Nov. 13; Neyland Stadium; Knoxville, Tenn.
A win over the Kentucky Wildcats will rejuvenate Tennessee football for the home stretch of the season. However, that won’t be enough for the Vols to get past a loaded Georgia Bulldogs team, one that may be the best of the Kirby Smart era. Right up front, we can safely say the Vols will lose this one easily at Neyland Stadium.
However, there will still be some shockers. As you can see, we have UT hitting the 30-point mark. Remember, Josh Heupel put up 27 against Georgia in 2016 and then 28 in 2017, when they had that loaded defense Smart’s second year.
As a result, we know that Heupel can put up points against Smart. More importantly, his team plays UGA later in the year this season. That type of experience and newfound momentum will help the Vols move the ball and register some big plays.
Typical to this series in recent years, the Vols will do enough to make this a game early. Heck, they may even take the lead at one point. However, Georgia will pull away in the second half and dominate. UT will still have a late score or two, but it won’t be enough. To nobody’s surprise, Georgia will win this one easily.
