Georgia’s 27-13 win over Tennessee on Saturday certainly clarified a few things.

  1. The Dawgs defense stepped up to shut down Tennessee’s high powered offense with six sacks.
  2. The crowd noise at Sanford Stadium shifted momentum early.
  3. The Vols offense learned quickly that six false starts were just the beginning of a long day of miscues. Georgia had 306 total yards compared to Tennessee’s 139.

The Bulldogs are in control of the SEC East with conference games against Mississippi State and Kentucky. Both games are on the road.

Stetson Bennett told where the focus is this week. “The challenge is in the coming weeks is continuing,” Bennett said “It’s not a one-and-done thing; we’re going to an extremely hard place to play next week at Mississippi State, they have a really good football team.”

Coach Kirby Smart added the following. “I thought our quarterback played really good, he played within the system,” Smart said. “He’s a winner. Let’s be honest, the guy wins, the guy knows how to play the game, he understands what people are doing.”

In the SEC West, Alabama’s loss to LSU dropped them in the standings behind The Tigers and Ole Miss. LSU won their third consecutive game with the OT win over The Crimson Tide on Saturday night.
