The No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs take on the No. 14 Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday, Oct. 10 in Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. Below you can find information on the game time, TV channel, how to watch online as well as odds for the Week 6 game.
The Bulldogs and Volunteers both enter this game with 2-0 records. The Volunteers have beaten South Carolina and Missouri to start the season. The Bulldogs defeated Arkansas 37-10 in their first game of the season and then crushed Auburn 27-6 last week.
This game figures to draw a lot of attention stemming from Cade Mays and his involvement for both sides. Mays was a former Georgia offensive lineman and a projected starter at left tackle for the 2020 season. But in January, Mays made the decision to transfer to Tennessee. Mays was granted immediate eligibility last week, meaning he’ll be able to suit up against the Bulldogs.

What Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said about Tennessee
On playing Tennessee and Jeremy Pruitt
“It’s on to Tennessee. Jeremy [Pruitt] has done a tremendous job putting together a really good football team. He has built his team along the offensive and defensive line of scrimmages, and they have a good football team. They are very physical. They are very experienced at quarterback. They are very experienced in the secondary. I have a lot of respect for the way they play the game. I thought last year they played extremely physical against us — that’s the brand of football they play. I’ve got a lot of respect for that. I’ve known Jeremy for a long time, and it’s going to be two good football teams getting after it.”
On Tennessee’s improved offensive line
“I thought they were a really good offensive line last year. They are well-coached. Will Friend, who worked here for a long time, is a tremendous o-line coach. He does a great job. That — combined with Coach [Jim] Chaney, who has a lot of experience coaching offensive football and offensive lines, he’s done a tremendous job. He and Will put together a physical run plan, they always do. They are going to find ways to run the ball. They are committed to the run, which you’ve got to be in the SEC. They have some good players up there. A lot of these guys played last year, so the addition of Cade, they’ve got really five returning starters when you look at it.”
On comparing Tennessee and Auburn
“I think the experience they have on the fronts. When you look at a defensive line and an offensive line, I really believe that’s where the game starts because there’s nothing easier than being able…if you can run the ball, it makes the game easier. And when you can’t run the ball, it makes the game difficult. That’s all based on your offensive line and their defensive line. Now, that’s not to say there’s not some offensive line out there that’s got great pass pro, or the team can throw it for 600 yards and never run the ball and be successful, that does exist. LSU broke that norm—it’s not like they couldn’t run it, they didn’t have to run it last year. When I start with Tennessee, I see they have a commitment to the run. They’re physical on the offensive line. They’ve got a deep offensive line. They’ve got big people on the defensive line. They’ve got experience, they have big people, they’re physical up front. So, when you start with those two, they’re just better right now than where Auburn is.”
