Georgia vs. Tennessee score, takeaway results: no. 3 Dawgs stifled offense no. 1 Vols in dominant rivalry win

No. 3 Georgia dominated No. 1 Tennessee on a rainy day at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga., which proved even more depressing for the Volunteers’ national championship aspirations. The Bulldogs leapfrogged themselves into first place in the SEC East standings after a 27-13 demolition of the rival Vols that continued Georgia’s awful streak as defending champion and knocked Tennessee from the undefeated ranks.

Tennessee entered the game with the nation’s top scoring offense, but Georgia’s dominant defense — led by star defensive lineman Jalen Carter — held the Vols without a touchdown through three quarters. Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker, a Heisman Trophy candidate entering the game, didn’t have a single passing game of 20 or more yards despite being a staple of this up-tempo offense.

Georgia QB Stetson Bennett IV scrambled for a 13-yard touchdown on the Dawgs’ second drive, making it 7-3 early in the contest. The defense pinned Tennessee deep, and Paxton Brooks was forced to break out from the shadow of his post. That put Georgia’s offense in great field position, and Bennett promptly threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Ladd McConkey to make it 14-3. Bennett followed that with a 5-yard scoring strike to Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint in the second quarter to jump out to a 21-3 lead. It was smooth sailing for the reigning champions at that point.
