Georgia football delivers an early knock out blow in rout of Tennessee

It's Georgia's first shutout since a 66-0 win over Troy in Athens in 2014 and first shutout on the road since blanking Auburn 38-0 in 2012. After the first quarter, Tennessee's defense had no answer for that.

"He looks faster and bigger to me", Georgia coach Kirby Smart said.

"I think we'll start seeing some of them back on the sidelines", Kendrick said of the injured players.

And to add insult to injury, punter Trevor Daniel, one of Tennessee's bright spots this season, drove a low punt that went off the face of the Bulldogs' D'Andre Walker to set up the visiting side's final touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

The irony is from 2001 through 2015 (all in the Mark Richt era) the Bulldogs had been pretty consistent throughout and probably the most consistent SEC team in that run.

College football point spread: The Bulldogs opened as 3.5-point favorites, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. He finished the day with just five completions for 64 yards. "Jacob Eason has to focus on getting healthy, getting 100 percent". Although Fromm won at Notre Dame in his first career start, a large Georgia contingent made the trip to South Bend and turned that into more of a neutral-site atmosphere. Strong offensive line play is vital to the overall success of Fromm and the running backs against Tennessee. Georgia's first four running backs all averaged over five yards per carry.

"That's awesome", Smart said. "Our goal is to win every single game".

Marshall has also been efficient the few times he has had to pass, going 14-23 for 280 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. It was worse Saturday: The Bulldogs mashed Tennessee to the tune of 294 yards and four touchdowns.

It has been a hard stretch for Tennessee's Jones, in his fifth year in Knoxville. Defensively, Georgia football yields 11.5 points and 269.8 total yards (172.3 in passing and 97.5 in rushing) per game. Safety J.R. Reed intercepted a pass from Dormady on Tennessee's next drive. Tennessee's two sacks came off miscommunication from the Georgia offensive line. The last time Tennessee was shut out was at home against Florida in 1994.

Tennessee junior RB John Kelly rushed for 44 yards on 16 carries while catching four passes for 47 yards in Saturday's 44-0 embarrassment of a loss to Georgia.

Amusing enough, I ended up a going a little old school this week, landing on teams which pride themselves on a solid ground attack and play sound defense. Not only did the Vols play poorly, there were bumbling moments to go along with it. The Bulldogs took a 7-0 lead two minutes into the game on a 59-yard flea-flicker, scored again on their next possession and never let the other Bulldogs back in the game. Making Fromm throw as much as possible is the only thing that the Vols can do to throw off Georgia's run-heavy offense.
