Comments

The Bulldogs had better not take the Vols lightly. Good quarterbacks make things happen and Tennessee has one in Hendon Hooker. Hooker has thrown 21 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions. He’s also a run threat with over 450 yards rushing for 4 scores. I think Georgia wins this one by at least three touchdowns but it’ll be rocking in Rocky Top on Saturday.
