The stakes are high for these two SEC East rivals, as championship hopes hang in the balance. Tennessee stands at 3-1 after falling to Auburn last weekend and looks to rebound with a road victory over the No. 3 Bulldogs. A Volunteers' win can force a three-way tie atop the conference standings and keep their dreams of a championship intact.

Who: Tennessee (17) vs. Georgia (3)
When: Sat., 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)
Where: Sanford Stadium, Athens, Ga.
The Bulldogs are coming off an impressive 45-16 victory over LSU, and at 4-0 they are the team to beat in the conference. A win over Tennessee would put them in position to take control of the SEC East race.

This game also features four of the best freshmen in the country – Tennessee QBs Erick Ainge and Derrick Schaeffer and Georgia RBs Danny Ware and Thomas Brown.
