The Georgia Bulldogs travel to Columbia, Missouri this weekend to take on the Missouri Tigers.

The Tigers just came off a close overtime road loss to Auburn 17-14. With that loss, they are now 2-2 on the season.

Missouri earned both of their wins at home this season, and suffered both of their losses on the road. However, their two home wins came against Louisiana Tech and Abilene. Their other road loss came in the form of a 40-12 blowout against Kansas State.

Missouri shouldn’t cause too much trouble for the top-ranked team in the nation despite the sloppy home win last week.

Many Georgia fans are wondering if this Bulldogs team can return to dominant form this week after that 39-22 victory over Kent State.

The Bulldogs have played two-straight noon kickoff games, and this will be the first night game they have had so far this season. Even though the players have expressed that the kickoff time doesn’t affect the way they prepare for games, night-time road games bring a different type of energy. The Bulldogs players all said they’re excited and prepared to play in that atmosphere.

This is another test for Bulldogs, especially on offense. Sophomore wide receiver Adonai Mitchell is expected to travel with the team but is not expected to play again. Stetson Bennett needs some of those other receivers to step up and make plays.

However, Georgia has some of the most talented tight ends in the country, including star sophomore Brock Bowers and junior Darnell Washington. Even though redshirt sophomore Ladd McConkey had a rough game last weekend, he is still one of Georgia’s most reliable receivers and is dangerous in the open field.

Georgia will need some other guys that don’t get the ball as much to step up as pass catchers like Dillon Bell, Jackson Meeks, and Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint.

Georgia is expected to win big this game and so far, they have played better away from Sanford Stadium in the beginning part of this season. On top of that, they are playing against an SEC East rival that they have had a lot of success against. The Bulldogs are 9-1 against the Tigers ever since they joined the SEC back in 2011, and they are 5-0 in Columbia.

I believe Georgia gives out another standout defensive performance and keeps Missouri out of the end zone this game.

Final Score Prediction: Georgia 41 Missouri 6
