The Vols (3-1) are coming off a somewhat lackluster 17-13 victory over UMass on Saturday at Neyland Stadium. It was a game in which both teams went scoreless in the fourth quarter of a game that turned into a defensive struggle.
Georgia (4-0) is ranked No. 7 in the nation and is coming off a convincing 31-3 victory over Mississippi State last Saturday.
The last five games in the series between Tennessee and Georgia have been decided by seven points or less.
Vols legend, five-time NFL MVP and College Football Hall of Fame inductee Peyton Manning will be honored at halftime, and earlier this week, announced he is standing behind coach Butch Jones and Tennessee during this transition season.
