Sophomore Malcolm Mitchell had seen snaps on offense and defense for the Georgia Bulldogs, but played offense only on Saturday against Tennessee.

With the return of Alec Ogletree and Bacarri Rambo to the Georgia defense, the Bulldogs' offense enlisted the services of Malcolm Mitchell on Saturday against Tennessee.

The sophomore had been the Bulldogs' starting cornerback so far this season, but the return of Rambo at safety meant that Sanders Commings, who had two interceptions against the Volunteers, could move back to corner.

Mitchell caught four passes for 31 yards and had one rush for -10 yards on Saturday. He also added 28 yards on two kickoff returns and one punt return.

Head coach Mark Richt did tell the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Mitchell could return to the defensive side of the ball in the case of injury:

"He was our No. 2 nickelback behind (Damian Swann)," Richt said. "If anything had happened to Swannie he would have been in there."

Georgia now faces a huge matchup against South Carolina on Saturday, going on the road to Columbia to take on the No. 6 Gamecocks.
