Tennessee-Georgia game not what it used to be

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- This used to be one of those signature games on the Southeastern Conference schedule.

Now, outside of Derek Dooley facing the team his dad once coached, there's nothing more intriguing about Tennessee vs. Georgia than which team will finally get its first SEC win Saturday.

The Volunteers (2-3, 0-2 SEC) are coming off a disheartening loss at LSU after time expired and are clearly in a rebuilding mode under first-year coach Dooley.

As for Georgia (1-4, 0-3), a team that thought it could contend in the SEC East is mired in a four-game losing streak -- its longest in two decades -- and the worst conference start since 1993. As the losses have mounted, so has the pressure on Georgia's Mark Richt, the dean of SEC coaches.
