Georgia became the first team to go unbeaten in the SEC three years in a row since the league went to an eight-game schedule in 1992.

Tennessee gained 75 rushing yards on the first snap and had 37 the rest of the half.


When Wright went 75 yards for a touchdown on the team’s first snap, Tennessee made it six straight games when Georgia opponents have scored on their opening drive. … Tennessee royalty made an appearance after the first quarter — icon Dolly Parton was escorted onto the field by Vols legend Peyton Manning. She sang “Rocky Top” with the band as the players from both teams looked on. … Georgia RG Tate Ratledge sustained an apparent knee injury in the second quarter.


Georgia: Taking the momentum from Saturday’s win into the regular-season finale should set the Bulldogs up for their SEC Championship Game battle with Alabama.

Tennessee: This marks the second straight year the Vols have limped through the end of the season. Last year, it was a stunning upset loss to South Carolina that ended their dreams of a berth in the College Football Playoffs. This year, back-to-back losses to Missouri and Georgia have relegated Tennessee to consideration for a lower-tier bowl game.


Georgia: The Bulldogs have maintained their stranglehold on the top spot in the AP poll, as well as the CFP poll.

Tennessee: After having been listed among the Top 25 all season, a fourth loss will likely knock the Vols out of that poll for the season finale.


Georgia: The Bulldogs will close out the regular season at Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Tennessee: Vanderbilt will pay a visit to Rocky Top on Saturday.
