Georgia vs. Tennessee: TV Info, Spread, Injury Updates, Game Time and More
The Georgia Bulldogs will attempt to continue their upward climb through the college football rankings in Week 6 against the Tennessee Volunteers.
Since losing to Clemson to open the season, Georgia has impressively defeated two other high-ranking teams on its way to a 3-1 record. More importantly, the Bulldogs have a perfect 2-0 record in the SEC.
Unlike last year's defense-oriented squad, the 2013 Bulldogs are winning games by overwhelming their opponents with offensive production. Aaron Murray has been phenomenal, and he leads the ninth-ranked passing offense in the nation.
The Volunteers have won three games this year, but both losses have come against ranked opponents. Oregon easily dispatched Tennessee, and the team lost its only conference game to Florida, which was able to shut down the offense to the tune of 220 total yards.
Tennessee bounced back from those two losses with a win last weekend against South Alabama, but the offense was once again a problem, as quarterback Justin Worley threw three interceptions.
Georgia is heavily favored to win on the road this Saturday, but upsets happen every week.

How Will Tennessee Keep Up with Georgia's Torrid Offense?
The Bulldogs feature one of the hottest offenses in the nation.
Murray has already passed for 1,338 yards with 11 touchdowns through four games, and he leads the No. 6-ranked offense in the country. Per game, Georgia is putting up 554 yards and is scoring 41.3 points.
Tennessee, on the other hand, has been stymied on offense in its two previous games against top-ranked competition, averaging 15.5 points per game against Oregon and Florida.
Georgia will press the pace early in order to establish a lead, which will force Tennessee into becoming a one-dimensional offense while it plays catch-up. This isn't a scenario that favors the Volunteers, however, as Tennessee features one of the worst passing offenses in the nation.
Georgia is too hot right now to be taken down by the likes of Tennessee.
Which team will win?
Murray has thrown 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions in his past three games after opening up the season with a zero-touchdown, one-interception performance against Clemson.
Neither Justin Worley nor Nathan Peterman is capable of matching Murray score for score, and Georgia could have the game wrapped up before halftime.
Georgia wins 45-24
