Georgia Vs. Tennessee: Dawgs Exceed Expectations Again

Bill Connelly has the Georgia Bulldogs moving up after an understated showing against the Tennessee Volunteers:

Overachiever: Georgia and Underachiever: Tennessee (Projected Margin: Tennessee +7.9 | Actual Margin: Georgia +8). Poor Tennessee is giving Florida a run in the "cruel injuries" department; in fact, I give the Vols the edge. Two games after they lost stud receiver Justin Hunter for the season, they lost quarterback Tyler Bray for a month late in Tennessee's 20-12 loss to Georgia. Bray was solid if unspectacular against Georgia (18-for-33, 251 yards and a sack), but the Vols had no running game and gained just 270 yards overall (4.3 per play) versus a quickly improving Dawgs defense. Georgia had little offensive success in three of four quarters, but they exploded in the third: 16 plays, 184 yards, 14 points. Tennessee in that span: 11 plays, 11 yards, zero points. In an otherwise even game, that will take you down.
