The Georgia Bulldogs entered tonight’s game against Tennessee as the heavy favorite despite playing on the road.
It’s been a long season for the Volunteers even though the 2019 campaign is just a few weeks old. Head coach Jeremy Pruitt turned to true freshman quarterback Brian Maurer for his first career start to see if he could pump some life into the Tennessee program.
He looked sharp early and even had the Volunteers up 14-10 at one point.
Unfortunately, the Bulldogs eventually found their footing and erased any confidence Maurer built up in the first half.
Late in the fourth quarter, Georgia corner Eric Stokes crushed Maurer, which caused a fumble.
During Georgia’s fumble recovery to the endzone one of the officials found himself in a bad spot.
He got absolutely drilled on the play.

Luckily, he was able to get up and walk it off.
As for the play on the field, Georgia walked out wit a 43-14 win after trialing in the early going.
The Bulldogs kept their undefeated season alive and now have a week to prepare for South Carolina. Georgia has three huge games left on the schedule, against Florida, Texas A&M and Auburn as the Bulldogs look to win the SEC East.
