The No. The polls have shown 1 Tennessee as No.
The Volunteers beat Nick Saban, Alabama and the Alabama Tigers for the first time since 16 attempts. They also defeated Kentucky in Week 9.
The success of Tennessee has created a huge matchup against No. 3 Georgia, Saturday: The winner of “between the hedges”, the matchup between Tennessee and No.
Both alumni from the two schools will be coming to Athens, Georgia for the contest. Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walk, who is running for U.S. Senate in Georgia, will also be there.
Walker, who was a running back at Georgia in 1982 for the Heisman, is challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock.
As college football prepares for Saturday’s match between the Vols and Bulldogs, Walker took aim at Warnock because he had a campaign bus that was licensed in Tennessee.
Walker stated in a press release that “Another example Raphael Warnock failings to stand with people of Georgia.” Warnock spent his California campaign money to purchase a bus from Tennessee, instead of supporting a Georgia company. He could have just as easily painted his bus orange, and played ‘Rocky Top” all day.
“Georgia needs a senator who stands up for and fights on behalf of the people of Georgia, their businesses, and our way of living. Go Dawgs!
According to Fox News Digital, Walker and Warnock were practically tied as of Monday. Walker was at 46%, while Warnock was at 45%.
