No. 7 Georgia surges into game at Tennessee

No. 7 Georgia surges into game at Tennessee

It was worse Saturday: The Bulldogs mashed Tennessee to the tune of 294 yards and four touchdowns.

Bulldogs lead 31-0 over Tennessee with 1:04 to play in the third quarter.

The total has gone over in Georgia's last five games against Tennessee.

Georgia also traveled senior place-kicker David Marvin, to go with place-kicker Rodrigo Blankenship and punter Cameron Nizialek. While the yards don't pile up like they did as a freshman and sophomore, his yards per carry average has jumped from 5 previous year to 6.4. Outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter (three sacks this season) and Davin Bellamy spearheaded a smothering effort in a 20-19 win at Notre Dame on September 9. It may not have mattered if Richt and Georgia won the rest of the games as the Alabama game showed what kind of team the Bulldogs were under him. Chubb rushed for 1,130 yards a year ago.

"If you look at kind of the past history of this game, they usually come down to the final possession", Tennessee coach Butch Jones said.

Under second-year head coach Smart, Georgia is trying to rebuild its image of a traditional powerhouse. Last week the Vols muddled through a game with 0-5 UMass.

"The team wants to do well for Nick", Smart said.

The Bulldogs got more good news in the fourth quarter when quarterback Jacob Eason made his first appearance since spraining his left knee in the season opener.

Tennessee offensive woes continue, John Kelly had a big play, but then fumbled the ball and gave it right back to Georgia.

Trump touts tax plan in 'Made in USA' speech
On the Senate side, two key members of the Senate Budget Committee agreed to $1.5 trillion in increased deficits over a decade. But how to make that happen is where the disagreement comes in, and it's why Donald Trump's tax plan is getting mixed reviews.

Falcons survive scare from Lions 30-26
The NFC North-leading Lions (2-0) host the Atlanta Falcons (2-0) on Sunday in a matchup of two of the NFC's four undefeated teams. So with that in mind, it's clear that Detroit needs as many early-season wins in order to keep this from happening once more.

Fantasy Cricket: TFG Pundit tips for India v Australia 3rd ODI
India reached the 100 mark in 15 overs without losing a wicket with Rohit Sharma leading their robust reply with a blistering 71. An Aaron Finch century hasn't been enough to lift Australia past 300 in its do-or-die one-day global against India in Indore .

The star Penn State back now has 518 rushing yards and is averaging 7.8 yards per carry with four rushing touchdowns, in addition to 23 receptions for 335 yards and two more score.

Not one of the past five Tennessee-Georgia games has been decided by more than seven points. Chubb, Michel, Swift and Elijah Holyfield form a seemingly endless running back rotation. Backup Jarrett Guarantano didn't fare much better with only 16 yards on seven attempts.

He'll get a look at the starting job again in the bye week.

And the punt that was blocked by a Georgia player's head because it was so low.

The Bulldogs added David Marvin's 19-yard field goal to cap the day's scoring when the crowd had dwindled to maybe 25,000.

Tennessee's defense had some success early in the second quarter, but the offensive line woke up and began to dominate the line of scrimmage.

"You look at the way he's playing, he has incredible balance", Jones said. Then add about eight cloves of sliced garlic, as much chili flakes as you enjoy (for me it's a healthy 4-5 spoonfuls) and a 3/4 cup of honey. "It feels good. I'm not going to stand here and lie and say it doesn't feel good to shut out opponents, but that's the mindset we come in with though". If you're invested, you hurt.

National upset special record: 1-3. Defensive tackle Trenton Thompson has been a beast stopping the run, leading the Bulldogs' to No. 16 in the nation in total defense. 2007 had two games where Georgia scuffled against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium and at home against SC.
