The Bulldogs travel back to Tennessee on Saturday to . Here's some pregame patter:

  • A promising tidbit from T. Kyle King on SB Nation: "Georgia hasn’t lost to South Carolina and Vanderbilt in the same season since 1958."
  • Bleacher Report's Joe Penkala bucks the trend and predicts a stunning Vandy upset (it's slide 22).
  • Seth Emerson of the Ledger-Enquirer runs through the pregame with the Tennesseean's Jeff Lockridge, who says, "[W]ith a defense that has been pretty stingy, the Commodores should have a chance to hang around at home in a fairly low-scoring game if their offense can rediscover the end zone."
  • The Red&Black profiles Georgia defensive end Abry Jones, the son of two Army veterans.
  • The Vanderbilt student newspaper says, "[T]he Commodores will be looking to avenge their embarrassing 43-0 loss in Athens last year, a game that signaled the beginning of the end for then-head coach Robbie Caldwell."
