Members of the Bulldawg Illustrated team made score predictions for today’s game against Missouri. See what each member had to say.
40-30 Dawgs. Drew Lock lights scoreboards up, but this time he is held 10 points below his normal minimum. Georgia will score on special teams or defense and continue to hit 40, with Godwin and Swift leading the way on offense.
It should be another great game between the Bulldogs and Tigers. A late Georgia touchdown seals a shootout, Dawgs 45-33.
All signs say this one is going to be a shootout, which means take the under (64.5). Rodrigo kicks four field goals, and his teammates hunker down for two TDs. The Georgia D stands tall late and holds off Mizzou driving for a winning TD … Bulldogs 26, Tigers 20
I don’t know what to expect from the Tigers, but I do know that their offense is created for an upset. This is definitely not a game to overlook as most of us know, but their defense is anything but an upset D. The Dawgs win 45-31. The Savage defense locks down the Missouri receivers, ruining Drew Lock’s passing attack. The Tigers will have to work off of their running game while the Dawgs’ offense will attack the day.
This game shapes up as a repeat of the South Carolina game, in my view. The Tiger defense will not be able to stand up to the pounding from the Bulldog offense. At best, Mizzou keeps it close or even leads at the half, but the Dawgs take over in the third quarter and roll to a 45-21 win. More valuable road playing time is experienced by Georgia’s young pups as the game winds down.
Georgia’s defense gets its first real challenge of the season with Missouri’s high powered offense. We all know Drew Lock is talented and has guys to throw to, however, it’ll be hard with Georiga’s defensive front pressuring him. The Bulldogs defensive line finally gets in the backfield and gets a sack or two. However, it’ll be the secondary that shows up and proves it has the talent and capability to be an elite secondary. I predict at least two interceptions for Lock as Georgia makes Missouri bow down to them. Two guys that need to have a good game are Richard LeCounte and Tyson Campbell. LeCounte gets his second INT of the year, and Campbell continues to put it together and maybe even gets his first big stop of the season. Georgia rolls Missouri 45-17 and goes 2-0 in SEC play and 4-0 on the season.
Through three games the Dawgs have not been tested. An 11:00 A.M. kickoff against an explosive Missouri offense could finally provide some adversity for this young, talented group of Dawgs. A little bit of adversity may not be a bad thing before heading into Baton Rouge for what could potentially be a massive game with Playoff implications. Missouri has nothing to lose and is going to come out firing. However, the Dawgs have too much depth, talent and speed. With Missouri’s inability to rush the passer and lack of talent in the secondary (see Purdue passing for 572 yards) I expect to see the Dawgs push the ball downfield and Hardman, Holloman, Godwin and Robertson to have big games. Dawgs 51 – Mizzou 20.
I think its safe to say that Missouri will have some offensive success against Georgia, but their defense is horrifyingly terrible. Purdue’s quarterback last week threw for 572 yards. Jake Fromm plays a solid game tossing the rock for 300+ yards, and Georgia wins 45-27.
