No. 3 Bulldogs subdue Vols

Tennessee will go with freshman Brian Maurer at QB

Tennessee will go with freshman Brian Maurer at QB

Maurer made his college debut September 14 against Chattanooga and also played the next week in a 34-3 loss to Florida, starting the second half of that game. Georgia went back in front with 2:34 to go in the first period, but the Bulldogs had to settle for three after an offensive pass interference penalty and a swarming Tennessee defense halted their drive.

But the Volunteers made this one interesting for a while.

Tennessee was unable to answer after Cimaglia missed a 47-yard field goal. The Ocala, FL, native connected on 10 of 21 attempts in the first half for 205 yards and two TDs, propelling UT to a four-point lead with 14:57 to go in the second stanza.

Tennessee freshman quarterback Brian Maurer made his first career start on Saturday and sparked an offense that had stumbled and staggered through the first month of the season.

Georgia: The Bulldogs had to come from behind for a second straight game after erasing a halftime deficit in a 23-17 victory over Notre Dame two weeks ago. Pruitt wouldn't say whether Maurer would start again next week or if the Vols might go back to Jarrett Guarantano, who started the first four games. "I guarantee you that", Pruitt said. Senior Jauan Jennings leads the Volunteers with 19 receptions for 281 yards and four touchdowns. "I thought Brian did a really good job in the first half". Tennessee wasted little time responding, as Maurer found Callaway behind the Bulldog secondary for an electrifying 73-yard touchdown strike on the second play of the ensuing drive.

In his first career start for the Vols (1-4/0-2 SEC), Maurer completed 14 of 28 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns.

Rather than running out the clock, Georgia marched down the field and extended it is lead on Fromm's 7-yard touchdown pass to George Pickens with nine seconds left. On Maurer's final play of the night, Eric Stokes sacked him and knocked the ball loose, enabling Tae Crowder to score the game's last touchdown on a 60-yard fumble return with 4:38 left. It helps to have a quarterback the caliber of Fromm, who hasn't thrown an interception all season.

The bye week came at a great time for third-ranked Georgia, which heads to Tennessee on Saturday after a week off following a 23-17 victory over No. 10 Notre Dame on September 21.

However, the Vols struggled to put together drives in the second half, and Georgia was able to pull away.

Georgia probably played well enough in the second half to stay in the No. 3 spot. Now, the Dawgs are 5-0 and face SC in Athens this Saturday at noon.

Next week Tennessee will face Mississippi State in Neyland.
