The Tigers just couldn’t handle the Bulldogs today. They shot themselves in the foot with the turnover on their first possession, and the Bulldogs never looked back. There was a period there in the first half when the game was tied at 14 and Missouri looked like they could hang with Georgia, but that just wasn’t the case.

Between Georgia running backs, Mcintosh, Cook, Edwards, and White, the Bulldogs looked unstoppable. the four of them combined had five of Georgia’s touchdowns.

Less then 50 rushing yards before the half is sad, but less than 50 rush yards all game is humiliating. Larry Rountree III was kept in check all game. Without the threat of a run game, the Tigers’s offense was ineffective.

While Missouri’s offense was seemingly shut down all afternoon, the 21 unanswered points in the third quarter is what blew this game up. The Tiger’s secondary struggled to stop both the run and pass game of Georgia.

The Tigers didn’t get the win this afternoon, but are still eligible for a bowl game with a win next week against Mississippi State.
