No. 3 Georgia defeats No. 1 Tennessee with great defence

No. 3 Georgia’s stout defense helped them defeat then-ranked Tennessee 27-13. To seal the victory, the Bulldog defense sacked the Volunteer quarterback, Hendon Hooker, six times. In addition to the defeat, Hooker threw his second interception of the year. Overall, Georgia stifled a potent Tennessee attack, holding the Volunteers to 3.9 yards per play and a 14% third-down conversion rate.

Stetson Bennett outperforms his more prominent contemporaries in the biggest games. 

Michael Bennett threw two touchdown passes, and Nick Chubb rushed for another as Georgia trounced Tennessee 27-13 in an SEC game on Saturday. 

On Tuesday, the initial College Football Playoff rankings placed the Bulldogs third (9-0, 6-0 SEC). Georgia and Tennessee topped the Associated Press top 25 polls for a second year. 

The Bulldogs defeated the No. 1 team in the AP poll in their 25th regular-season encounter.

Georgia’s starting quarterback Bennett is 23-3. 

“Competitive excellence, competitive toughness,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said of Bennett’s ability to compete on the biggest stages.

In total, Bennett completed 17 of 25 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns. Against Heisman Trophy frontrunner Hooker, he ran for 13 yards and a touchdown. Perhaps Bennett should be doing this right now. 

Because “at the end of the day, we’re competing for the East, and if we lost, it’s a smaller likelihood we’re playing in Atlanta,” Bennett said, “at the end of the day, my sole incentive is for the team’s prospects of returning to the SEC championship game.”
