Instant Analysis: Georgia sends message to SEC — it is for real

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The stage is set now. No more speculation needs to be made, no more hypotheses need to be thrown out. Georgia is the team to beat in the East, and the Bulldogs are heading headlong into a late-October matchup with Florida to prove it.

Their biggest hurdle until then was cleared on Saturday. No. 7 Georgia beat Tennessee at Neyland Stadium. Smoked them actually, 41-0, appropriate with the Vols dressed in their smoky greys. It was the first time Tennessee has been shut out since 1994.

The Bulldogs (5-0, 2-0 SEC) shot out to a 24-0 lead before halftime. That could’ve been a statement in and of itself, except for Georgia led 24-3 in the second quarter last time it was at Neyland and couldn’t make it stand up.

The Bulldogs did this time — and then some.
