Georgia 41, Tennessee 0

Jake Fromm threw a touchdown pass and ran for two more scores Saturday as No. 7 Georgia rolled to a 41-0 blowout of Tennessee, which suffered its first shutout loss in nearly a quarter-century.

Nick Chubb added 109 yards rushing as Georgia raced to its first 5-0 start since 2012, the last year the Bulldogs reached the Southeastern Conference championship game.

Tennessee (3-2, 0-2) was shut out for the first time since a 31-0 loss to Florida in 1994.

The Bulldogs got more good news in the fourth quarter when quarterback Jacob Eason made his first appearance since spraining his left knee in the season opener. Fromm was 7 of 15 for 84 yards and also rushed for 20 yards before giving way to Eason with the game well in hand.

Before Saturday, none of the last six games in this series had been decided by more than eight points. Each of the last three years, the winning team had erased a double-digit deficit.

There would be no frantic finishes or dramatic comebacks this time. Georgia (2-0 SEC) made sure of it.

The game's first play from scrimmage set the tone for the rest of the day. Georgia's Tyrique McGhee picked off Quinten Dormady's pass at Tennessee's 27-yard line to set up Rodrigo Blankenship's 38-yard field goal.

That started a tough afternoon for Dormady, who was 5 of 16 for 64 yards with two interceptions before Jarrett Guarantano replaced him late in the third quarter.

Fromm was much more effective.

The poised freshman found Javon Wims for a 12-yard touchdown pass on a third-and-5 play to give Georgia a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. He added touchdown runs of 9 and 4 yards in the second quarter as Georgia led 24-0 by halftime.

His biggest mistake came on the first play of the second quarter when Tennessee's Justin Martin picked off a pass at the Georgia 27, but the Vols failed to capitalize. Tennessee's best scoring chance vanished when a shotgun snap from center Jashon Robertson appeared to hit his rear end and came in low to Dormady, who couldn't handle it. Georgia's Lorenzo Carter recovered the fumble at the Georgia 29.

Even Tennessee's biggest gain of the afternoon resulted in a turnover, as Aaron Davis forced a fumble by John Kelly that J.R. Reed recovered at the end of a 44-yard completion.

It was such a bad day for Tennessee that punter Trevor Daniel, one of the Vols' most effective players this season, had a rare misstep. Daniel's low punt early in the fourth quarter went off the face of Georgia's D'Andre Walker to set up the Bulldogs' final touchdown. Tennessee's Darrell Taylor was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and ejected from the game on Georgia's final touchdown drive.
