Free Analysis: Derek Dooley's Volunteers are still in search of their first conference win, faltering in their only SEC matchup to date, a 37-20 home loss to rival Florida two weeks ago. Tennessee was able to put some distance between itself and its lone loss with a 47-26 win over Akron last weekend. At 3-1, the Volunteers are off to their best start since 2006. The Volunteers rank second in the SEC in total offense at 513.8 yards per game, fueled by a passing attack that generates 341.2 yards per game (eighth nationally). Thanks to the play of quarterback Tyler Bray, the team is on pace to break the school record for passing yards set in 1997 (3,981). Bray has completed just over 63 percent of his throws thus far, for 1,301 yards with 12 TDs against three INTs. The top target has been wideout Justin Hunter, who paces the team in receptions (40), receiving yards (410) and TDs (4). The passing game is the preferred mode of travel for Tennessee, but the Vols also have a capable ground attack as well (172.5 ypg), led by tailback Rajion Neal (356 yards, 4.4 ypc, three TDs). Neal rushed for 151 yards against Akron last time out. The Tennessee defense has had its ups and downs this season and the stats are evidence of that. The team is yielding 24.2 ppg this year and has been generous to opposing ground games, giving up 163.0 yards per game on 4.6 yards per carry. Still, the unit has found a way to make big plays, recording eight interceptions through four games.
Mark Richt's Bulldogs have looked the part of divisional favorite, running through the competition with lopsided wins over Buffalo, Missouri, Florida Atlantic and most recently, Vanderbilt (48-3) to move to 2-0 in conference play. The Bulldogs are the top offense in the SEC, averaging a robust 530.0 yards per game. The rushing attack has been lethal at 242.5 yards per game, while the passing attack has been equally effective (287.5 ypg). The result is a scoring average of 47.5 ppg, just over 10 points more than the season record for Georgia (37.2 ppg in 1946). Quarterback Aaron Murray has been solid thus far, completing 66.3 percent of his passes, for 1,092 yards, with 10 TDs. He has spread the ball around, with three players posting double figure receptions and all three over 260 yards in receiving. The trio of Michael Bennett, Marlon Brown and Tavarres King have combined for eight TDs. Freshman Todd Gurley may have had the biggest impact thus far though, as the 6-foot-1, 218-pound youngster is averaging a whopping 9.2 yards per carry, a conference-best 101.5 yards per game and is responsible for six of the team's 14 rushing TDs to date. The Georgia defense is loaded with talent, but with the way the offense has been playing, there hasn't been a need for dynamic play on this side of the football thus far. The team is allowing 16.5 ppg this season, on 343.2 yards per game. The crown jewel of the Georgia defense is All-American linebacker Jarvis Jones. The 6-3, 241-pound junior has 24 tackles in three games, with 7.5 TFLs, 4.5 sacks, one interception and 13 quarterback hurries.
Free Pick: I like the Under in this one. The Tennessee offense comes in hot, but they have yet to face the kind of defense that they will face today. The Did come close to facing a team with this good a defense and that was vs Florida and they were able to put up just 20 points in that game. The Bulldogs have allowed just 343 ypg at 4.9 yards per play, while allowing just 16.5 ppg. This is a defense that will only get tougher as the year goes on. Tennessee has not been super solid on defense, but they do allow just 24.3 ppg and 5.2 yards per play.This is SEC football and I expect both temas to bring their A games on defense. 50 points at most here.
