Georgia shuts out Tennessee at Neyland, 41-0

Georgia's offensive line represents arguably the toughest challenge of the season thus far for a Tennessee defense that already has accomplished quite a bit in rebuilding its pass rush. Saturday's matchup certainly wasn't.

In short, they are getting destroyed by the visiting Bulldogs and there's no way to spin it.

Nothing came easy to the Vols as they experienced a 41-0 defeat at the hands of the Dawgs.

Chubb has the third-most rushing yards in the SEC with 371 and is tied for the league lead in rushing touchdowns with six. While the yards don't pile up like they did as a freshman and sophomore, his yards per carry average has jumped from 5 previous year to 6.4. This is the blueprint to beating Tennessee, and opponents have taken notice. "Of course previous year we worked on it the Thursday before we played Tennessee".

The coaches didn't ask Jarrett Guarantano to do much. Both played Saturday, but neither was effective.

Offensively, Tennessee football averages 30.3 points and 381.3 total yards (224.8 in passing and 156.5 in total yards). Mayfield's numbers are still great, as he has thrown for 1,32 yards while completing 75 percent of his passes with 13 touchdowns and no interceptions.

McGhee credits good coaching to his ability to not get down on himself when he makes a mistake. We didn't have any explosive plays. There's a reason for that.

Latest Health Care Repeal Bill Would Leave Millions Uninsured, CBO Says
With the fate of the latest Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare coming down to the wire in Washington, Gov. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, told the Washington Post that the new version of his bill would kick more funding to Maine.

Despite winning nine games each of the next two seasons, he inched closer to the hot seat thanks to a combined 9-7 SEC record in 2015 and 2016. Dormady needs to limit his throws as much as possible against the Georgia secondary, but running with Kelly can't be predictable either. For the second straight week, Marquez Callaway did not have a reception and after a career-day one week prior against UMass, Brandon Johnson was also shut out.

Even Tennessee's biggest gain of the afternoon resulted in a turnover, as Aaron Davis forced a fumble by John Kelly that J.R. Reed recovered at the end of a 44-yard completion.

Sophomore LB Quart'e Sapp had perhaps his best game as a Vol, leading the team with 10 tackles.

It's early, but Shoop said Fromm reminds him of another Georgia quarterback. Safety and nickel have surprisingly been a strong suit for Tennessee with Nigel Warrior and Rashaan Gaulden playing extremely well.

I was on the sidelines for this game.

The No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs are set to face the Tennessee Volunteers on the road this upcoming weekend and has their sportsbook betting lines primed and ready to go. But by the end of the third quarter, the crowd began to file out, and Neyland looked like a mini-Sanford Stadium during the fourth quarter.

Look, Tennessee's 9-4 seasons in each of the past two years were good ones. The Volunteers looked overwhelmed from the opening kickoff, and though the Bulldogs may well be the second-best team in the SEC, Tennessee turned in the performance of a team in need of a major change. That includes a 31-3 triumph last week over No. 24 Mississippi State, which was ranked 17th at the time.
