Georgia, the defending college football champion, upsets No. 1 Tennessee

The reigning national champion Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Tennessee Volunteers at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia, on Saturday in what was billed as the college football game of the year.

The Bulldogs upset the Volunteers 27-13 despite the fact that they had debuted at No. 1 in the season’s inaugural College Football Playoff rankings.

The Bulldogs and Vols were tied for first place in the AP Poll going into the game, and both teams had perfect 8-0 records. This was just the third regular-season matchup in SEC history between a No. 1 and No. 2 rated club.

According to TickPick, there was a tremendous demand for tickets to see the game, and the final ones sold for more than $600.

The Bulldogs proved they are still the ones to beat in college football in front of more than 90,000 spectators.

Georgia dominated every aspect of the game and won with ease. Tennessee did not enter the end zone until there were fewer than five minutes left in the game thanks to the strong Bulldog defense.

With a clear road back to the College Football Playoff, where the Dawgs will attempt to defend their championship, the victory puts unbeaten Georgia on the fast track to the Southeastern Conference Championship Game.
