The top two offenses in the SEC go head-to-head on Saturday as the No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs take on the Tennessee Volunteers. The game will be broadcast live on CBS at 3:30 p.m. ET, and you can also watch a live stream online for free here.

The Bulldogs field one of the top offenses in the nation, ranking ninth among FBS schools in points per game. They have scored at least 41 points in every game this season and are also in the top 30 nationally in both passing and rushing yards per game.

Two weeks ago, Georgia put up a school record 713 total yards in its win over Florida Atlantic. The Bulldogs then followed that up last week with 567 yards against Vanderbilt. Georgia led the Commodores 27-3 at halftime and cruised from there, resting many of its starters in the fourth quarter.

Georgia is led on offense by junior quarterback Aaron Murray, who is the conference's top active player in both touchdown passes and passing yards. He is helped by a deep receiving group that features three wideouts with at least 260 yards and two touchdowns.

The Bulldogs rushing attack is not too shabby, either. Georgia ranks third in the conference in rushing with an average of 242.5 yards per game. Freshman Todd Gurley is carrying the load, leading the conference in both rushing and all-purpose yards.

But with all the focus on the Bulldogs offense, their defense has allowed just 23 points in the second half so far this season. Still, Georgia allowed over 20 points each of its first three games this season.

Georgia has also not faced an offense as talented as Tennessee's. The Volunteers sport the best passing offense in the SEC, averaging 341.2 yards in the air per game.

Junior receiver Justin Hunter is the Volunteers' biggest threat. Hunter has hauled in 30 receptions for 410 yards and four touchdowns so far this season. Last week Georgia faced a similar test against the conference's second-leading receiver, Jordan Matthews from Vanderbilt. While the Commodores only scored three points against the Bulldogs, Matthews still finished the game with 119 yards receiving.

The Bulldogs may be helped by the returns of two key players on defense. Linebacker Alec Ogletree and safety Baccari Rambo were each suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season. Rambo, who had eight interceptions for Georgia last season, was penalized for a failed drug test, while Ogletree was suspended for a violation of team rules. Both are expected to suit up against Tennessee.

The Volunteers have been playing without a defensive star of their own, as sophomore safety Brian Randolph tore his anterior cruciate ligament two weeks ago against Florida. Randolph was leading the squad with 22 tackles this season before his injury.
