LIVE THREAD IN COMMENTS, SCROLL TO BOTTOM!!!
It’s time for some Georgia football! Nearly 2 weeks since the Dawgs throttled South Carolina, Georgia is all set to take on Missouri in Columbia in a dreaded 11:00am CT, 12:00pm ET kickoff. Of course the game is on the SEC Network with Dave Neal and DJ Shockley on the call. The Dawgs will look to remind the college football world of the momentum that they had before the postponement of last week’s contest by Vanderbilt, while attempting to halt that of a surging Missouri team that has won 5 of it’s last 6 games.
Missouri has been scoring in bunches. Over 90 points in it’s last 2 games, but it’s also worth noting Georgia’s offense has also looked tremendous with JT Daniels at the helm. The Tigers’ redshirt freshman QB Connor Bazelak is playing confidently for first year head coach Eliah Drinkwitz’s squad and Kirby Smart and Dan Lanning’s defense will need to execute early and avoid any busts in pass coverage to prevent this one from being a shootout.
The guys in Vegas have Georgia as a 13.5 point favorite. The over/under on this game is set at 52.5. If I were a betting man, I’d be more confident about taking the over than the spread in this one. Eliah Drinkwitz is going to test Georgia’s defense with passes to running backs out of the backfield and run routes. These have plauged UGA’s defensive execution and scheme all year. We’ll see if the Dawg’s defense has made adjustments with extra time to heal up and prepare for Mizzou.
Finally, there is no overstating how much JT Daniels and the revitalization of the Georgia offense and the increase of execution in the passing game has helped UGA in recruiting. With early signing day on this coming Wednesday, prospects on the offensive and defensive side of the ball are watching to see if the Bulldogs can continue to have success and balance on offense, particularly in creating explosive plays. Recruits today know that an offense has to have that element of explosiveness on offense to win it all and so far JT Daniels has given the Georgia staff plenty of evidence to present to recruits in crunch time for the class of 2021.
