With two quarters already in the books, Missouri leads the struggling Bulldogs at half 28-10.
Iv read lots of comments and discussions throughout the game and everyone seems to blame the injuries for the reason why Georgia is down 18. Yes, injuries are a factor in today’s game but the Bulldogs are still killing themselves with turnovers. Aaron Murray had a pretty solid first half, completing 15 of 22 passes for 188 yards and one touchdown. Georgia isn’t having trouble finding open receivers and marching down the field but two lost fumbles are costly. Especially one scooped up and returned for a touchdown by Michael Sam.
Don’t count Missouri out. This young Missouri team has a bunch of talent. You can’t expect them to travel to Georgia’s turf without putting up a fight. James Franklin completed 12 of 18 completions for 135 yards and one touchdown. Running back Marcus Murphy is also showing out for Mizzo, rushing the ball 3 times for 51 yards and a touchdown.
If Georgia wants to save their rear end from picking up their first SEC loss, they need to tighten up. And fast. There is still a lot of ball left to play but in order for Georgia to compete this second half their defense needs to really pick it up. I think Georgia will make a little run and close up the gap but I don’t have any confidence in their defense. I have Missouri winning by 14.
