No. 2 Georgia is coming off a 49-7 win over Middle Tennessee State on Saturday. The Bulldogs leap-frogged Clemson in the AP Poll because of that win along with victories previous over Austin Peay and South Carolina.
When these two teams met last season in Knoxville, Tenn., the Bulldogs romped to a 41-0 victory, which was one of the more impressive wins in all of college football.
Georgia visits Missouri this week. That game will kickoff at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN. The Tigers are also unbeaten on the season and are led by quarterback Drew Lock, who threw for 44 touchdowns last season.
The Volunteers enter this week with a 2-1 record but their loss came against No. 13 West Virginia, which is the only Power 5 team that Tennessee has played so far this season. Tennessee hosts Florida this week in a game that is usually pretty entertaining.
The Georgia-Tennessee game will also mark Jeremy Pruitt’s return to Sanford Stadium for the first time since his days as Georgia’s defensive coordinator. Pruitt was in charge of the Georgia defense for the 2014 and 2015 season. After Georgia and Mark Richt parted ways, Pruitt ended up filling Kirby Smart’s role at Alabama as the defensive coordinator.
Pruitt’s staff is also littered with a number of former Georgia assistant coaches, including Tracy Rocker, Will Friend and Kevin Sherrer, who is the defensive coordinator for Tennessee and was Georgia’s outside linebackers coach last season.
