While not aesthetically pleasing to the eye the Georgia Bulldogs were able to take care of the Tennessee Volunteers 38-12 on Saturday. In the first half Jake Fromm struggled with holding on to the ball getting extremely lucky on the first fumble when Tight End Issac Nauta scooped it up and took it 40 yards to the house for a touchdown. Fromm fumbled again later after driving the Bulldogs down the field and they had to settle for a field goal. D’andre Swift was able to get in the end zone near the end of the second quarter and the Bulldogs went into the half up 17-0 thanks to stellar defensive play.
The second half saw Justin Fields take the reigns at QB early and on the first drive he was able to put it in the endzone himself with a rushing touchdown to make it 24-0 Bulldogs. Fields and Swift would each add another rushing touchdown in the second half that would account for the 38 points.
The Georgia Bulldogs will look to improve next week when they take on the Vanderbilt Commodores in Athens before an incredibly tough stretch of games with LSU, Florida, Kentucky, and Auburn.
