Missouri at Georgia in Big SEC Game

If you didn’t have the Missouri Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs as the big SEC Game of Week 7, then don’t feel too badly. CBS didn’t either,. That is why they are showing the Florida Gators at the LSU Tigers tomorrow. When the schedule came out, the South Carolina Gamecocks at the Arkansas Razorbacks probably seemed like a bigger contest than Missouri-Georgia. Then there was also the Texas A&M Aggies at the Ole Miss Rebels game that really looked like a big one a couple of weeks ago.

With all the tough games the Bulldogs have already played this season, they likely were looking forward to the game with the Tigers as a breather. So much for that. Mizzou comes into the game ranked #25 and with a 5-0 record. This makes the third ranked team of Tigers the Dawgs have faced already this season. They lost to the Clemson Tigers in the season opener 38-35 and beat the LSU Tigers two weeks ago 44-41. This Tigers-Dawgs game has the potential to be another good one.

Georgia comes into the game wounded. Their fantastic tailback duo of Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall has been reduced to a gimpy Gurley, who may not even play.  Mizzou’s schedule has been rather light so far, but perhaps not quite as light as previously thought. One of the teams they beat, the Indiana Hoosiers, walloped the Penn State Nittany Lions last week 44-24. They also put quite a beating on the Vanderbilt Commodores a week ago in Nashville.

Georgia barely escaped the Tennessee Volunteers in overtime a week ago. Missouri is surely as good as Tennessee. Georgia is an eight point faborite in this game. Do not be surprised if the Tigers not only beat the spread but also win the game.
