Georgia plans to win East

The Florida-Georgia line is more than a boundry or the name of a country band.
The fine line between winning the SEC East recently has been determined at the showdown between the Gators and the Bulldogs.
Florida has won the last three and captured two straight SEC East titles.
The Bulldogs won three straight against Florida (2011-2013) and Georgia fans hope a new streak starts on Oct. 28.
This could be the first time since 2012 Georgia can have a home-field game at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Tennessee’s trip to the top could be rocky

This is the fifth team in the SEC football preview series:
The Tennessee Volunteers have improved each season under the direction of Butch Jones.
In the past four years, the Volunteers were, 5-7, 7-6, 9-4 and 9-4.
There was all kinds of hype heading into last season as the Vols seemed poised to win the East and finish in the top 10 –maybe higher.
The highs were wins over Florida, Georgia and Virginia Tech.
That should have put them near the top of the heap.
