Kind of a big day today. Mizzou basketball has a little Braggin’ Rights contest to take care of tonight against the 6th ranked Illini, but before that happens Mizzou Football has a little date with destiny against Georgia.
The 9th ranked Bulldogs are coming into Columbia with a 6-2 record, their only losses against number 1 Alabama and number 6 Florida. The last time Mizzou beat Georgia was 2013 in a somewhat memorable football game in Athens. But since this matchup has been all Bulldogs. Missouri has been shut out twice by Georgia, including last year when Missouri was limping towards the finish line and were doused 27-0 in Athens. So Mizzou is looking to snap a six game losing streak to Georgia, and maintain their current three game winning streak.

Missouri-Georgia football: Betting Odds, Predictions
As of Friday night, Georgia is favored by 13, per Vegas Insider.
Josh Matejka: As much as I hate to say it, 13 points is probably a bit too close for the Tigers. As much as I believe the offense is better than 94th in the country, Georgia’s defense is still elite, even with injuries. The Tiger defense has probably peaked, and they’ll be missing Jarvis Ware and Tre Williams, one of the few dependable pass rushers on the defensive line before he left the team. Never say never, but there’s probably too much working against Mizzou for them to pull off the dramatic upset. It’ll probably be something like 34-16 Georgia by the time it’s all said and done.
Nate Edwards: I see Georgia getting J.T. Daniels plenty of passing opportunities in the 1st and 2nd quarters, going up by 17, then relying on their elite running game to coast to the end. Missouri has the ability to scrap for a half, but if Daniels is playing they’ll probably fall behind and get a late score to make it somewhat respectable. I’m thinking 38-14 Dawgs. Prove me wrong, please.
