The No. 2 Tennessee Vols travel to Georgia to take on the No. 1 ranked Georgia Bulldogs in the BIGGEST football game of the weekend! In fact, they don't get any bigger than this when it comes to college football.

The line on this game has gone from UGA -9 to -7.5 and back up to -9. We get a number of UGA 5.82.  There is an overlay of 1.5 to 2.5.

Gabe Ikard joins former Georgia Bulldogs QB Drew Butler to share their predictions on this marquee matchup.

This will be the defending national champion Bulldogs toughest test of the season thus far.  Georgia will come into this game with a chip on their shoulder after the College Football Playoff rankings listed the Vols No. 1.

"There's a long way to go. We obviously have a huge step this week in Athens, Georgia, but I love competing with this team every Saturday," second year head coach of the Vols Josh Heupel told ESPN this week.

Georgia has won the past five meetings of this series.  The two teams rank among the best in total offense.

The Volunteers lead the nation in scoring offense (49.4 points per game) and total offense (553.0 yards per game), while Georgia ranks second in total offense (530.1) and is tied for sixth in scoring (41.8).


Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker has thrown for 2,338 yards with 21 touchdowns and a single interception. 

He's not the same quarterback Georgia met last season in Knoxville, according to Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smith.

"He's one step ahead of where he was," Smart said of Hooker. "To think of the reps and the games he's played since the games last year, he's just as elusive, he's got probably the same arm talent. Those two don't improve. It's his decision-making and his processing. And the guys around him are playing better, too."

Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett has passed for 2,349 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions. He has a 22-3 career record as a starter.
