Tennessee is wearing its “dark mode” jerseys for Saturday’s matchup with No. 1 Georgia, the Vols announced on Twitter Thursday night.
The Vols are 1-0 this season in their new black alternate uniforms, beating South Carolina, 45-20.
Tennessee is 2-0 in its classic home jerseys this season, 0-2 in its all orange uniforms, 1-1 in its white jerseys and orange pants and 1-1 in its all white uniforms.
Georgia is wearing its classic red helmets, white jerseys, silver pants road combination.
Tennessee is coming off its best win of the season entering the matchup with the nation’s best team. The Vols beat N0. 18 Kentucky 45-42 in a thriller that gave UT its third SEC win of the season.
Georgia presents Tennessee with its greatest challenge of the season yet. The Bulldogs have the nation’s best defense and haven’t given up more than 13 points in a game this season.
“Schematically, they understand what they’re doing defensively,” Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel said Thursday. “They don’t bust. They have their eyes in the right spot. They tackle extremely well out in space. They have good cover guys. They’re big, long, physical up front. I think they’re really unique in that they have 22-plus guys that are going to play on that side of the ball. They’re extremely deep. It’s a huge test for us.”
Tennessee and Georgia kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET. CBS is broadcasting the game.
