8. Georgia Bulldogs (2-1, 0-1 SEC)

Last Week’s Result: Beat Troy 66-0

It would have been easy for Georgia to sleepwalk through Saturday’s game against Troy. After an intense week of second-guessing in Athens following the 38-35 defeat at the hands of the South Carolina Gamecocks, the Bulldogs welcomed a terrible Troy team for a noon Eastern kickoff.

  • However, Georgia went out and did exactly what they needed to do by scoring more points than any Bulldogs team ever has under head coach Mark Richt and shutting out the Trojans in the process. In the grand scheme of things, the non-conference win means nothing, but it likely helped wash the sour taste out of the mouths of Georgia players, coaches and fans.

    Next, things get much more interesting for the Dawgs, who will host a rested and refreshed Tennessee Volunteers squad. The Vols had a chance to watch Georgia play during their bye week and will have two weeks of prep work under their belts when the two teams face off next week for an early day matchup.
