LIVE Updates: Georgia vs Missouri – Sports Illustrated

  • October 2, 2022

It is indeed Saturday in Athens, yet there is no football this weekend inside Sanford Stadium. The top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs are on the road today as they will take on unranked Missouri. 
The Tigers are off to a 2-2 start this season, with their latest game being a heartbreaking loss to Auburn inside Jordan-Hare Stadium. After having multiple chances to win the ball game, the Tigers will look to pull off the unthinkable. After Missouri missed the potential game-winning field goal at the end of regulation, the bad luck continued as running back Nathaniel Peat fumbled the potential game-winning touchdown just mere inches away from the goal-line in overtime.
The 17-14 loss on the road to Auburn was their second two weeks after their loss on the road versus Kansas State. The Wildcats dominated the Tigers 40-12. 
The 7:30 PM kick tonight will not be any easier. As 28.5-point underdogs, they will be facing a Georgia team that may have an extra edge. 
The Bulldogs gave up 22-points to a 40-plus point underdog at home versus Kent State. It was the most points scored on Georgia's defense since Alabama in last season's SEC Championship game. 
Surrendering 22-points along with three turnovers on offense will see the No. 1 ranked Bulldogs want to set the record straight after their worst performance of the season.
