Georgia football releases hype trailer for Tennessee game

ATHENS, Ga. — It’s the eve of the sixth conference game for Georgia and the team released its eighth game trailer of the season. As the Bulldogs ready themselves to take on No. 1 Tennessee at Dooley Field in Sanford Stadium, the official Twitter account of Georgia Football posted a 90-second feature titled ‘It’s about us,’ narrated by former Dawgs defensive end Travon Walker. Watch the video below.

“The path to success isn’t an easy one,” Walker says in the video. “This journey cannot be succeeded by the efforts of a single person. It takes the passion of a single nation. You put in the work, you know what to expect. It takes the relationships that are built on trust and a connection with family that extends far beyond the hedges.

When you are at home, you have 93,000 that have your back. They are loud, rowdy, and give Glory Glory to Old Georgia. We’ve got a family. A brotherhood. An unbreakable bond to hold us up when we need it most. But today, it does not matter who is on the other side. Because this is a part of the journey. This is our opportunity. This is about us.”

Georgia is set to stay home for its sixth conference game of the season. The game is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, with CBS set to televise the game and ESPN’s College GameDay and SEC Nation set to broadcast from Athens. The Bulldogs are now 74-15 under seventh-year head coach Kirby Smart, with a 45-9 record in conference play. Georgia is coming off a 42-20 neutral-site win over Florida and Tennessee is coming off a 44-6 home win over Kentucky. The opening line for the Week 10 matchup had Georgia as a 9-point home favorite over Tennessee and has since moved to the Dawgs being 8-point favorites. Georgia is given a 74.5 percent chance of winning the game by ESPN’s FPI.  Georgia has won five in a row and 10 of the last 12 games against Tennessee, taking a 26-23-2 lead in the all-time series last year. 

“Tennessee’s done a tremendous job. I got a lot of respect for Josh,” Kirby Smart said on Monday. “Always have. I knew him as a player and now as a coach. He was at Missouri for a few years early on and had a lot of success. Now he’s moved to Tennessee and done a tremendous job. His entire staff, they’ve done an incredible job with all the work they’ve done. And our guys are excited and looking forward to a top matchup in Sanford Stadium. I know our fan base will be loud and proud. I want to challenge our fan base to be — I mean, everybody talks about the Notre Dame game, but we want to be louder than that. We want to be there earlier than that. We had some great matchups last year here at home, and I thought they really affected the game each time we had a big matchup. So we’ll need them again and we’ll be ready to go.”
