To quote Pat Summitt, it’s the chance of a lifetime. Tennessee Football hosts the universally recognized No. 1 ranked Georgia Bulldogs over the weekend. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker break down the importance of the game, its best bets and what chance the Vols have of pulling off an upset. They also talk about Jim Harbaugh and Pac-12 court cases. Fred White joins the show.
History of Tennessee Football November upsets
Saturday won’t mark the first time Tennessee Football has played in a big November game with any sort of championship out of reach. Just two years ago, they beat a top 20 Kentucky Wildcats team on the road, and there are plenty of other, even bigger wins throughout UT history. Could they pull off another one this weekend?
Georgia has lost bigger upsets to Tennessee Football
For those questioning how realistic it is for Tennessee Football to upset the Bulldogs on Saturday, that wouldn’t even mark the biggest upset in the series for the Vols. UT was a larger underdog when it beat UGA on the road in 2004 and 1992, and the Dawgs were a larger underdog when they beat the Vols at Neyland Stadium back in 2001.
Fred White on Tennessee-Georgia rivalry, keys to game
Former Tennessee Football defensive back Fred White came to the Vols from Georgia and went 5-0 against them while playing for the Vols from 1995 to 1999. White, a starting safety on the 1998 national championship team, talks about the importance of the series and its future with the SEC getting rid of divisions next year. White also previews Saturday’s matchup.
Prop bets for Tennessee Football vs. Georgia
What are the best bets to make in Saturday’s matchup between Tennessee Football and the Bulldogs. Are there any stat lines that will favor the Vols given the fact that they are down two wideouts and facing arguably the best secondary in history? Can their running game return to where it was before last week’s loss at the Missouri Tigers?
Jim Harbaugh or Pac-12: Bigger legal story?
Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh will accept his three-game suspension. Meanwhile, a Washington court put a stay on the ruling that gave exclusive control of the Pac-12 to the Washington State Cougars and Oregon State Beavers for this year since the other 10 schools are leaving. Which story is the bigger deal?
