The Tigers have their work cut out for them and then some in this one. To say the absolute LEAST.

The Georgia Bulldogs are riding high. The Dawgs trucked rival Florida over the weekend in Jacksonville to remain unbeaten on the season. They enter November as the top-ranked team in the land and likely will be #1 in the first CFB Playoff rankings. This weekend, they host the lowly Missouri Tigers. Mizzou is 4-4 on the year and picked their first conference win up over the weekend against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

This is a mismatch of epic proportions. Mizzou is giving up the second-most yards per game of any Power 5 team (ironically, only trailing the Kansas Jayhawks). They also rank near the bottom in the P5 in Yards Per Play allowed, as they sit at 6.7 in that category. If that were not enough, they are allowing the most rushing yards per game in the entire country (283.8).

On the flip side, Georgia’s defense is top-tier. They rank second in the country in YPG allowed, tied for first with Wisconsin in YPP allowed, and are second in rushing yards per game allowed. The Dawgs defense is elite and you did not need me to tell you that. But it serves as a reminder of the difference between these two squads as we’ve hit November.

I’m not sure even the most optimistic Mizzou fan is expecting victory here. The Tigers are jammed in a bad spot here. Georgia has been ferocious and doesn’t look to be with many peers this year. The Bulldogs are likely to feast in this one and all Mizzou can hope for is that they come in with some fierceness themselves for a bit.
