Ole Miss 31, GEORGIA 0

PREGAME:

  • The line closed with Ole Miss being a 6½-point favorite—tied for the second-biggest underdog Georgia has been in this 46-game series. In 1970, the Bulldogs were a 7½-point underdog to the Rebels and, two years later in 1972, were a 6½-point underdog, as well.
  • Entering this game, Georgia’s straight-up record as an underdog beginning in 2010 was merely 2 and 11.

OFFENSE:

  • Through the first four games of the season, Georgia has been outscored in the first half, 68 to 45.
  • At the half, Ole Miss linebacker and ex-Bulldog Detric Bing-Dukes (a UGA signee in 2014) had totaled a team-high seven tackles.
  • Georgia is now a lowly 3 of 8 on field-goal attempts for the season, which is on pace to break the school record for most field-goal misses in a season (15 in 2011). Also, the last time the Bulldogs made less than half of their field-goal attempts in a season was 1975.

DEFENSE:

  • Through the first four games of the season, Ole Miss has outscored its opposition in the first half, 107 to 33.
  • Trailing 31-0 at halftime, the last time Georgia trailed by as much at the half was by the exact same score—31 to 0—to Alabama in 2008.
