#13 Georgia Bulldogs at #23 Missouri Tigers Preview
This Saturday Missouri will play host to Georgia in a game that will play a major role in determining who will win the SEC East. The Tigers currently hold the top spot in the East but they are only 1-0 in conference play. Georgia enters this matchup in a three way tie for second with Florida and Kentucky. Georgia’s only loss was to the team the Tigers just beat, South Carolina. Many experts believe that the winner of this matchup will win the East, especially if it is Missouri, but Kentucky and Florida are not going away without a fight.
This will be the 4th meeting between these two and UGA currently holds a 2-1 edge. The first of those two wins was in the 1960 Orange bowl. The second time was in 2012 in Missouri’s first SEC game. Missouri hosted the then 7th ranked Bulldogs and had a lead late into the 3rd quarter before their lack of depth did them in. Missouri revenged that loss last year by beating an again 7th ranked Bulldogs team in Athens. That game was also when Maty Mauk had to come in and take over for an injured James Franklin. That win played a key role in Mizzou’s SEC East Championship last year. There is no doubt that Mark Richt and the Bulldogs will be seeking their own revenge this year.
We have an insider for both of these teams, so Brett Eddy, our Mizzou insider, will breakdown why he believes the Tigers will win. Chaz Pike, our Georgia insider, will breakdown why he believes the Bulldogs will bring home a win.
