Despite being ranked No. 3 in the College Football Playoff rankings, released in Week 1 on Tuesday night, Georgia comes in as a 9-point favorite to beat Tennessee, and ESPN Analytics is also giving the Bulldogs (8-0) a 74.4% chance to win this game. Georgia is the top-ranked team in the AP Top 25 Rankings, but a loss here today will certainly see them falling behind the Volunteers in this poll as well.
The winner of this encounter will take command of the SEC East as well as the lead in the race for a spot in the SEC conference championship game in Atlanta. READ MORE: Week 10 Top 25 college football schedule; live TV channels, game times – Nov. 5
