Georgia at No. 2 in AP Poll following Tennessee win

It was another less than stellar performance for Georgia on Saturday, and on Sunday the Bulldogs came in at No. 2 in the AP Poll. The Bulldogs were ranked No. 2 last week.

The Bulldogs also came in at No. 2 in the Coaches Poll. 

Georgia came away with a 38-12 win over the visiting Tennessee Volunteers. While the Bulldogs were never really in trouble, Tennessee did cut it to a 24-12 deficit in the fourth quarter. But the Bulldogs responded with a D’Andre Swift touchdown to put the game away. Both Jake Fromm and Justin Fields played in the game, with Fields providing a spark for the offense.
