Tennessee vs. Georgia 2012: Dawg Sports reacts to UGA victory in shootout

The Georgia Bulldogs won in a shootout against the Tennessee Volunteers Saturday. Dawg Sports reacts.

It's safe to say Saturday's shootout between the Georgia Bulldogs and Tennessee Volunteers caught everyone off guard. SB Nation blogger T. Kyle King at Dawg Sports is even wondering if Georgia and Tennessee were traded to the Big 12 with the fantasy numbers the squads put up.

There were a combined 46 first downs, 1,038 yards of total offense, and 95 points. The Dawgs had chances to lose this game, but they prevailed, 51-44, despite playing their worst second quarter of the season.

Here's King with some perspective on what the Dawgs are achieving right now:

Georgia is 5-0 for the first time in six seasons, has won four of the last five games against a Tennessee program that took nine straight from the ‘Dawgs between 1989 and 1999, has scored more than 40 points for five consecutive contests for the first time in school history, and has won 15 straight regular-season outings for just the third time in 120 years.
