Kirby Smart: 'Sick to my stomach' after final play against UT

ATHENS (AP) - It was stunning. 

The Georgia Bulldogs thought they had done it. Jacob Eason had thrown a 47-yard touchdown pass to Riley Ridley to regain the lead with just seconds left. 

Then, Tennessee's prayers were answered. The Volunteers quarterback, Joshua Dobbs, threw a 43-yard "Hail Mary" pass. All Georgia had to do was bat it down. But Jauan Jennings jumped up and caught it. 

Game over.

No. 25 Georgia (3-2) lost to No. 11 Tennessee (5-0) 34-31.

It was a painful loss for Georgia, who is now 1-2 in the SEC, and it puts them in an incredibly tough position in the SEC East.

While Smart was disappointed, he said his players learned a valuable life lesson that they can use when facing any adversity in life.

Georgia goes back on the road next Saturday for another SEC East match-up against the South Carolina Gamecocks.
