On Saturday the No. 25 ranked Missouri Tigers will travel to play the No. ranked Georgia Bulldogs.
Missouri (5-0) has a better record then their SEC counterparts in Georgia (4-1) but find themselves as underdogs in this one. Last week Georgia survived a scare from Tennessee surviving with a 34-31 win in overtime.
Coverage of Saturday’s game between Missouri and Georiga will air on ESPN and WatchESPN beginning at 12:00 pm ET from Sanford Stadium in Athens, GA.
The Odds: The Georgia Bulldogs are 8 point favorites against the Missouri Tigers. The over/under for this game is 63.5 total points.
Will Georgia continue to avenge an opening week loss to Clemson or will Missouri pull off an upset?
BEST OF MAXIM
The 6-0 Missouri Tigers received some horrible news Saturday when they learned quarterback James Franklin will miss the remainder of the regular season with a shoulder injury.
#Mizzou QB James Franklin is expected to be out for at least the next 6 wks, probably longer w a Grade 2 shoulder separation, per source.

ESPN is reporting...
Coach Gary Pinkel and the Missouri Tigers pulled out all the stops against No. 7 Georgia in Athens, none more entertaining than a fourth-quarter, 40-yard trick pass into the end zone for what proved to be game-sealing play. The Tigers went on to win 41-26.
Leading by just two points (28-26) following the Bulldogs' failed two-point conversion and playing with backup quarterback...
Missouri went 10-3 in 2010 and had vaulted as high as #6 in the Nation before falling to Nebraska. When Missouri joined the SEC, it was expected that they would be the team that would contend for a SEC Championship quicker than Texas A&M. The Tigers struggled in their SEC debut going 5-7 overall and just 2-6 in the Conference. On Saturday, that might have all changed.
There are no "buts" between the hedges. There are no such things as "half-wins in the Southeastern Conference. No asterisks. No apologies.
So before the world starts calling for Missouri to hand its 41-26 victory at Georgia back to the league office because of the Bulldogs' rash of injuries, it's worth nothing that: a) the Tigers' biggest drive of the game...
Missouri got a huge victory today over Georgia 41-26. They finished the game without their starting QB James Franklin who left the game with a shoulder injury. According to Bruce Feldman, the Tigers will be without Franklin for at least 6 weeks with a grade 2 shoulder separation:

Missouri's win over Georgia sent a pretty good statement to the rest of the SEC, or at least the SEC East. The undefeated Tigers may have taken advantage of a depleted Georgia team Saturday, but the Tigers did not hold anything back in the road win. They even pulled a nifty trick play for a touchdown.
The play is not exactly unique in the execution. It was a simple wide receiver...
Mark Richt is an interesting guy. In addition to coaching the Georgia Bulldogs, he enjoys complimenting his competition’s players, making sexual innuendos, and hitting the pool for some swimming and diving. He also, apparently, loves watching completely mediocre movies. When speaking to ESPN’s Tom Luginbill today, he revealed his all-time favorite movie, and it’s kind of embarrassing...
With QB James Franklin headed to the locker room, Missouri pulled off a shocking double-pass for a touchdown against the Georgia Bulldogs.
On Saturday in Athens, the #25 Missouri Tigers (6-0, 2-0) dominated portions of the first half and overcame adversity to regain momentum and win the 4th quarter on their way to a 41-26 road win over the #7 Georgia Bulldogs (4-2, 3-1).
Georgia QB Aaron Murray fumbled after getting sacked. Missouri Tigers defender Michael Sam picked up the ball and returned it for a touchdown.
Georgia is getting waxed by Missouri right now 28-10, but you can’t fault Bulldogs tight end Arthur Lynch for not trying.
Lynch while trying to get a first down, hurdled a Missouri player after this catch. The Mackey Award candidate has 11 catches for 169 yards on the season.
H/T Bleacher Report
Dawgs Nation was pumped for Georgia’s huge game against the Mizzou Tigers. They showed up in droves to tailgate despite the early kickoff.
Georgia Bulldogs tight end Arthur Lynch hurdled a Missouri Tigers defender like he was in the Matrix.
After beginning the season with such promise, the Georgia Bulldogs are in a tough spot. Aaron Murray has played fantastic all year, but all his weapons have been taken away. The top two running backs and top three wide receivers have all been injured for the past couple of weeks, and while they hopefully will get Todd Gurley back, some of the others...

On Saturday between the Hedges, a banged up Georgia team fell to Missouri 41-26. Georgia came into the game at 4-1, having beaten two top ten teams, and maintained hopes of a National Championship after coming up four yards short in the SEC Championship Game last season. After falling behind, 28-10 at half-time, Georgia rallied furiously to pull to within...
