A look at the No. 14 Georgia Bulldogs (4-1, 2-1 SEC) four days before they play host to Vanderbilt (2-4, 0-3) on Saturday (1 p.m.):

Latest news:

Georgia begins practice with its sights set on its first SEC Championship since 1982. The Bulldogs aren't completely in the driver's seat; by virtue of its win over Georgia on Sept. 9, South Carolina (5-1, 3-1) owns the tie-breaker over the Bulldogs.

Injuries:

None

Key stat:

Georgia is second nationally and first in SEC scoring defense, having given up nine points per game.

Analysis:

Amid the euphoria that followed last week's win over Tennessee and talk of a conference title, Georgia needs to get back to business this week. Both Vanderbilt and Kentucky, the next two opponents before the Oct. 28 showdown with Florida, are capable of making life difficult if the Bulldogs don't show up.
