The playoff chase heats up with three top-10 matchups in Week 5. However, No. 11 Tennessee at No. 25 Georgia is pretty big, too. The 4-0 Vols are the team to beat in the SEC East, but the one-loss Dawgs could really open up the division with a win. GameDay Kickoff

Georgia coach Kirby Smart says that they still plan to be as balanced as possible against Tennessee even if RB Nick Chubb (ankle) can't play this weekend. Said that even with younger, less experienced backs to help Sony Michel (106 yards on 23 attempts this season), he thinks that he has "capable backs" to put in to help the running game go. Right now freshmen Brian Herrien and Elijah Holyfield have combined for just 211 yards, but Herrien is second on the team with 184 yards and is averaging 7.1 yards per carry.
