  • “We’re going to find out on Saturday if we’re in shape or not.” -- Smart on the Tennessee pace and Georgia’s conditioning.
  • “It does not look good for his availability this week. It’s a pec injury,” Smart said of Smith “He’s probably doubtful for this week.”
  • “He played better than I expected. He was in on run, he was in on pass,” Smart said of Carter. “He held the point. It’s really about stamina and him being able to hold up and condition.”
  • “He did some elite things on Saturday.” -- Smart on Stetson Bennett
  • “Experience. Chris has played in a lot of football games and that has allowed him to make a lot of plays.” -- Smart on Chris Smith
  • Smart mentions Dominick Blaylock was dealing with back spasms but he should be able to practice today.
  • “We’re going to find out if they can cover,” Smart on the secondary.
  • “I don’t think Kelee is lacking in confidence

  • “Any team you play in the SEC, the challenge is there. We have to figure out the best way to attack them.” -- McClendon on Tennessee.
  • “They move pretty fast. They’re getting a play off every 10 seconds. Conditioning is going to be a big factor this week.” -- McClendon on Tennessee’s tempo.
  • “It’s going to be crazy. Thinking back to the Arkansas game or the Notre Dame game my freshman year. It’s a fun game and I’m looking forward to it.” -- McClendon on the fan atmosphere.
  • “We know it’s going to be a good game. It’s the next game. We’re going to take like it’s the next game.”
  • “He’s definitely stepped up for our defense. He’s demanding excellence. He’s pushing us. He’s coming with 110 percent.” -- Warren McClendon on Jamon Dumas-Johnson.

The biggest game of the college football season will take place this Saturday in Sanford Stadium with the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs hosting the No. 2 Tennessee Volunteers.

Both teams enter the game with 8-0 records. Georgia is coming off a 42-20 win over rival Florida, while Tennessee blasted Kentucky, 44-6.

The winner of this game not only controls the SEC East but will add a major win to their potential College Football Playoff resume. Both teams already have marquee wins, with Georgia beating No. 8 Oregon and Tennessee getting past No. 6 Alabama.

The Volunteers have one of the top offenses in the country, with quarterback Hendon Hooker leading the way. But slowing the Tennessee passing attack, which ranks first in the SEC, isn’t all that is needed to slow down Tennessee.
