College football: Week 10 headlined by SEC-East division title match
On Saturday, one of the most highly anticipated SEC-East showdowns in recent history will take center stage.
No. 1 Tennessee will travel to No. 3 Georgia with three major stakes on the line: a division crown, a place in the SEC title game, and, a solid spot in the College Football Playoffs.
Following that top three matchup, the SEC will be treated to another top-ranked night game between Alabama and LSU.
Alabama will play under the Friday night lights at Tiger Stadium, in a game that could get one back into the mix of the playoffs and a hot date with either Georgia or Tennessee in the conference title game.
Outside the SEC, Clemson will travel to Notre Dame, Michigan goes to Rutgers, and Ohio State will play Northwestern after surviving a brutal test against the Nittany Lions last weekend.
Here's what you need to know about the biggest showdown to come on Saturday.
Who's gonna own the SEC-East?
The two 8–0 SEC foes will clash for the No. 1 seed bragging rights into the playoffs.
While Georgia is currently ranked the best in the AP Poll rankings, Tennessee was picked as No. 1 by the playoff committee - the only ranking that matter to enter the playoffs.
This will be a true test for both teams.
Tennessee has the best overall offense this season, led by a Heisman Trophy front-runner, quarterback Hendon Hooker.
The Volunteers have averaged 49.4 points per game this season and has scored 34 or more points every game played so far.
Still, the Bulldogs aren't just any old team. Georgia's defense has a level of caliber Tennessee hasn't played against this season.
Last year, the Dawgs' defense produced five NFL first-round selections and gave up just 16 touchdowns in 15 games en route to Georgia's first national championship in 41 years.
Similarly, this year Georgia has given up only two rushing touchdowns all season and has held its first eight opponents to just seven touchdowns.
The big SEC-East battle between Tennessee and Georgia will kick off Saturday at 3:30PM EST at the Bulldogs' home stadium.
