October has arrived for the Tennessee Volunteers, and that means it's time for SEC play. The first test on this four-game stretch is the Georgia Bulldogs this Saturday.
The winning team will have its first notable victory of the year. Together, Tennessee and Georgia are winless against ranked teams but have mopped the floor with lesser opponents.
Georgia had high hopes going into the season, but two losses to start the season has put those on hold. Meanwhile, the Vols had the notion of beating Florida the first time since Casey Clausen, but youth, coupled with a devastating injury to Justin Hunter, stalled the hope.
A win in Neyland Stadium this Saturday is likely to vault the Vols in the polls, perhaps high enough to receive its first top 25 ranking since September 2008.
Here is a preview of the game and the advantage of key matchups.
