Michael Bennett – Bennett continued his stellar all-around play for the DAWGS. Bennett finished with 5 catches, 70 yards and two scores. The best thing about Bennett is the way he plays the game. @MBennett_82 plays with great passion, gives complete and total effort, is as tough as they come and plays for his teammates. Bennett loves the game and we love him for it.
Alec Ogletree – Ogletree stormed back into the DAWGS line-up on Saturday with a career-high 14 tackles and 3 pass break ups. The monster that is @B_easy_uga9 was unleashed on the Vols on Saturday and his presence could not be ignored.
Damian Swann – Swann is becoming a fixture in the Georgia secondary and you don’t have to look hard to see why. @D_Swann collected his first career interception on a brilliant play on the ball and rolled up six total tackles, including a tackle for loss.
Sanders Commings – Sometimes it’s not that you’re making big plays, it’s when you’re making them. Moving back to corner for the first time this season, Commings played physical on the edge finishing with 5 tackles and came up huge late in the game hauling in two interceptions. @SandersCommings will continue to settle back in at corner going forward and the DAWGS defense will strengthen because of it.
Keith Marshall – Explosive. That’s the word that comes to mind when I recollect Marshall’s performance against the Vols. @Truthh4 got loose on Saturday carrying the ball 10 times for a career-high 164 yards and two scores (75 and 72 yards). Like a lightning fast overhand right, Marshall does his damage before defenses even see it coming.
Todd Gurley – If Marshall was explosive, Gurley was just unrelenting. The devastating uppercut that is the other hand in Georgia’s outstanding one-two punch at tailback, Gurley wowed again with a career-high 23 carries for 130 yards and three scores, including a 51 yard touchdown run. By the end of the game, Tennessee defenders didn’t want any more of @TGII3, going low to avoid full contact on nearly every tackle.
