Tennessee running back Jaylen Wright gave the fans in Neyland Stadium a big reason to cheer early in the game on Saturday.
With Georgia winning the coin toss, the Bulldogs elected to receive the ball at the start of the second half, thus giving Tennessee the ball to start the game.
On the first offensive snap of the game from Tennessee, quarterback Joe Milton handed off the ball to Jaylen Wright who burst up the middle of the field and had room to work with. Wright won the footrace against the Georgia secondary and took the ball 75 yards to the endzone.

The Vols only mustered three additional points through the first three quarters behind a 37-yard field goal from Charles Campbell.
