Georgia did a great job running the ball getting large chunks of yardage on the ground and opening up the passing attack for Jacob Eason. The team looked the best it has since the first game this season. The offensive line looked improved and played very aggressively. Jacob Eason played a great game, minus a mistake that he made up for on the Dawg’s final drive of the game.
The Tennessee Volunteers made a late comeback after the Dawgs had controlled most of the game Joshua Dobbs engineered a late drive to go ahead on the Dawgs 28-24 with very little time left in the fourth quarter.
