No. 10 and 5–0 Georgia boasted one of the nation’s stingiest D’s on the eve of its 2006 matchup with Tennessee. But not after Vols QB Eric Ainge was done with it.
Ainge threw for 286 yards and two TDs as Tennessee became the first team to hang 50 on the Bulldogs since Florida in 1995. He had some help, too, from an unassuming but talented sophomore named Arian Foster.
The San Diego native only ran for 63 yards on 15 carries, but he made them count to the tune of three rushing TDs (including a game-changing one just before halftime).
Foster would go undrafted in 2009, but when given his shot with the Houston Texans, he established himself as one of the best running backs in the NFL.
Georgia is 5-0 again in 2012. And the Vols are back in town this weekend. Will history repeat itself? Arian Foster profile
