True freshman Isaiah Crowell rushed for two touchdowns as the Georgia Bulldogs beat the Tennessee Volunteers 20-12 in Knoxville. The win was no. 100 for head coach Mark Richt.
Crowell finished the game with 58 yards rushing on 19 carries and two receptions for five yards. True freshman wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell had three receptions for 126 yards.
The story of the day again was the Dawgs’ defense, which held Tennessee to 270 yards and -20 on the ground. The Vols only touchdown came late in the game in the hurry-up offense. And the Dawgs dealt the Volunteers another blow by blocking the extra point and keeping the lead at eight.
Mark Richt is now 7-4 against Tennessee and 2-0 against Derek Dooley. Overall, the Bulldogs are now 18-21-2 against Tennessee.
Next up for Georgia is a trip to Nashville to face the Vanderbilt Commodores (Sat., Oct. 15). The game will be televised by FSN at 7:00 p.m. ET (Tickets).
