Through 3 Quarters

A great path to victory is to simply outgain your opponent on the field, and that's working so far for the Georgia Bulldogs (with 528 yards vs. 169 yards). Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Missouri Tigers 48-14 three quarters in. UGA has come by their advantage honestly, as they have outgained Mizzou 528 yards to 169.

UGA's offense has come from several players so far, with RB Zamir White leading the way by rushing for one TD and 126 yards on 12 carries. This receiving effort made it the first game that Pickens has posted more than 100 yards receiving.

Both UGA and the Tigers were victorious their last time out, but right now only UGA is in position to continue that streak. After we'll see if UGA has enough left in the tank to claim the victory or if Mizzou will come out on top yet again.

What to Know

The Georgia Bulldogs are 5-0 against the Missouri Tigers since October of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. UGA will take on Mizzou at noon ET at Memorial Stadium at Faurot Field after a week off. The defensive coordinators will surely put in extra hours ahead of this game since these teams' offenses combined for 1,124 yards two weeks ago.

The Bulldogs took their contest against the South Carolina Gamecocks two weeks ago by a conclusive 45-16 score. The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point UGA had established a 38-10 advantage. They can attribute much of their success to RB James Cook, who rushed for two TDs and 104 yards on six carries. This was the first time Cook has racked up 100+ rushing yards all year. Cook's sharp performance also set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.

Meanwhile, don't be fooled by the insanely high score: we promise Mizzou and the Arkansas Razorbacks were playing football. Last week, Mizzou narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the Razorbacks 50-48. Kudos to the oddsmakers for accurately forecasting both the winner and the close margin. RB Larry Rountree III went supernova for the Tigers as he rushed for three TDs and 185 yards on 27 carries.

Special teams collected 20 points for Mizzou. K Harrison Mevis booted in five field goals, the longest a 51-yarder in the first quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the contest.

This next contest looks promising for the Bulldogs, who are favored by a full 13.5 points. Those taking them against the spread are banking on an outcome similar to that of the team's contest two weeks ago, where they covered a 21.5-point spread.

Their wins bumped UGA to 6-2 and the Tigers to 5-3. After the lofty point totals in their previous games, we'll see if they're able to heat things up even more while facing each other.
