If the first few weeks of the regular season have taught us anything, it’s that the SEC East is as wide-open as ever.
Florida, Georgia and Tennessee all look like worth contenders with games between those three schools having a major impact on the division race. So it only makes sense that Oct. 1’s game between Georgia and Tennessee will be the SEC on CBS Game of the Week.
Going into last season’s meeting in Knoxville, Tennessee, Georgia had been getting the better of Tennessee in recent years. From 2010-14, the Bulldogs had taken five straight from the Volunteers, evening the all-time series between the schools at 21-21-2 in the process.
Tennessee took the lead back in 2015, though, with an epic comeback from an early 24-3 deficit in the first half to knock off the Dawgs 38-31.
This meeting comes one week after Florida at Tennessee serves as the SEC on CBS Game of the Week. That contest will air Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET live on CBS and CBSSports.com.
