KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Georgia ended its woes in Neyland Stadium on Saturday night with a 20-12 victory over Tennessee.
The Bulldogs (4-2, 3-1) had lost their past two games here by a combined 47 points, but shut down the Vols' high-powered offense to win for the fourth consecutive week after opening the season with back-to-back losses.
Georgia's defense was once again up to the task and continues to play at a high level. The Vols' only touchdown came in the final minutes after the Bulldogs had built a 20-6 lead.
In six games this season, Georgia's defense has allowed just 10 touchdowns.
Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray, who had gone 10 consecutive games with at least two touchdown passes, was held without any touchdowns. He injured his right wrist/hand late and didn't finish the game. Senior Matt Simms led the Vols to their only touchdown.
Tennessee (3-2, 0-2) once again couldn't run the ball at all and was held to minus-20 yards on the ground. In the Vols' two SEC games this season, they've been held to minus-29 yards after finishing with minus-9 yards against Florida.
Georgia freshman receiver Malcolm Mitchell had pair of big catches to set up scores for the Bulldogs, but he also left the game early after injuring his hamstring.
