Time to pick the scab
A great and terrible night for Drew Lock
Lock lit up Georgia for 322 yards and two touchdowns — and that was only the first half.
He finished 23 of 38 for 376 yards with three touchdowns, but he also threw three second-half interceptions.
Still, Lock set a record for most passing yards in the first three games of the season with 1,106 yards, breaking the record of 1,017 set by Chase Daniel during the 2007 season. [...]
Lock said he "just got greedy" and also had a couple bad throws, but a defensive adjustment also might have played a role.
"I think they ran some more Cover 2 in the second half than they did in the first half," first-year Missouri coach Barry Odom said. "They made some plays. They’ve got some good players on that side of the ball. Give credit to (Georgia coach) Kirby (Smart)."
And an even greater and more terrible night for J'Mon Moore
Last year, Moore had 350 yards in 12 games last season. Prior to this season, Nate Brown, who led the team in touchdowns for a receiver last year, injured his ankle. Moore suddenly became the guy.
He has embraced the role and exceeded expectations early on. Through three games, Moore has 302 yards.
With a little more than one minute to play in Saturday's game, Moore caught a ball and turned upfield. This time, he didn't cut up field and score. He fumbled.
The pass rush made a (brief) appearance!
Before Saturday’s 28-27 loss to the Bulldogs, Missouri’s top sack artist only had five total tackles, without a sack or tackle for loss. The Kansas City product had 18½ tackles for loss and seven sacks last season.
With "D-Line Zou" missing in action through the first two games — Josh Augusta accounted for the Tigers’ only sack of the early season — Harris proclaimed that the floodgates would open for him eventually.
He was correct in that assessment, finishing with three sacks, four tackles for loss and seven total stops on Saturday against the Bulldogs. He even jumped up and pawed down a pass that appeared destined for an open receiver over the middle of the field.
