WHAT'S AT STAKE
Georgia is attempting to match Florida's 3-0 start in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division and remain unbeaten before next week's key game at No. 6 South Carolina. Tennessee, which lost 37-20 to Florida in its first SEC game, needs a conference win to show progress is being made in coach Derek Dooley's third season. Ending a streak of two straight losses to the Bulldogs would send a strong message to Tennessee fans needing encouragement after a five-win 2011 season that included 1-7 in the SEC.
Tennessee NG Daniel McCullers vs Georgia C David Andrews. The massive McCullers (6-8, 377) is a matchup nightmare for a first-year starter. The offensive line was a key preseason concern for Georgia, which had three 2011 starters selected in this year's NFL draft, including both starting tackles and center Ben Jones.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Tennessee: LB A.J. Johnson leads the Vols with 31 tackles and four quarterback hurries and also has four carries for 7 yards and two touchdowns in Tennessee's ``Beast'' version of the Wildcat offense.
Georgia: CB/WR Malcolm Mitchell. The team's second-leading receiver as a freshman in 2011, Mitchell moved to cornerback in spring practice. With the defense returning to full strength, Mitchell was back at receiver in Tuesday's practice and may be a two-way player against the Vols.
