The Pick

Georgia -16.5

Georgia woke up last week. After some questions were starting to emerge about how good UGA actually is, they put that conversation to rest in a massive win over then No. 1 Tennessee. They proved they have the best defense in the nation and are primed to make life miserable for Mike Leach and his pass-heavy offense this weekend.
