    Nathanael’s Pick

    Tennessee should win this game pretty handily against a simply overmatched Georgia State squad. The Panthers have enough playmakers at the skill positions on offense to get a couple scoring drives going against UT’s defense that lacks some depth right now, but GSU’s defense was awful last season. I don’t expect them to be much better this season.

    Score: 48-14, Tennessee

    Ben’s Pick

    Despite its perceived weaknesses, Tennessee is quite simply a much better team than Georgia State — who won just two games a year ago. Dan Ellington, a true dual-threat quarterback, is capable of leading a scoring drive or two for the Panthers against a Tennessee defense that possesses depth concerns. But Georgia State doesn’t have the players on defense to slow down the Vols’ playmakers on offense.

    Score: 45-13, Tennessee
