Tennessee, Georgia both looking for benchmark wins

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Derek Dooley knows he and the Volunteers are measured by how they perform against rivials like Georgia. Still, he has a hard time looking at Saturday's meeting with the Bulldogs as bigger than any other game.

The Vols (3-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) handily took care of three nonconference opponents but are still waiting to get the first win of against a major rival of Dooley's short tenure.

Meanwhile, Georgia coach Mark Richt is in line for his 100th career victory. Richt got his first big win when the Bulldogs upset a then-No. 6 Tennessee team in 2011 in Knoxville, but a win on Saturday in a sold-out Neyland Stadium would be just as sweet with Georgia (3-2, 2-1) in a three-way tie for first in the SEC East.
