The Georgia Bulldogs look to get back to their winning ways with a strong road victory over the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday.

The Georgia Bulldogs have won five straight games against their SEC East Rival. The last time UGA lost to UT, it was two coaching regimes ago when Lane Kiffin roamed the Rocky Top sidelines in 2009. At 2-3 with UGA and Alabama on their slate in the next two weeks, the Vols cannot afford to lose another SEC game if Butch Jones wants to keep his post in Knoxville.

Mark Richt’s greatest win to date was in Knoxville back in 2001. Man, do I still love me some Hobnail Boot highlights. However, this is must-win game in some capacity for both the Georgia Bulldogs and the Tennessee Volunteers.

For Georgia, this game is about staying the course to keep the Dawgs’ SEC East Division Championship hopes alive. For Tennessee, this is about stalling the Butch Jones firing likely coming at the end of the regular season.

Without further ado, here are the five players on the Georgia Bulldogs I have my eye on in their Week 6 matchup with the Tennessee Volunteers. I guarantee there is at least one player from all three phases on this list.
