Over at Dawgs247, Jake Rowe posts five things about Missouri football.
The matchup between Missouri’s defensive ends and Georgia’s offensive tackles is scary. But it sounds like McKenzie may have a decent chance of popping a good punt return.
Both teams are very good with regard to turnover margin, which means it’s something to keep an eye on. (When is it not?) But I hardly know what to make of this:
Whether you think you can or can’t run the football effectively against Missouri, you are probably right. The Tigers’ run defense has been up and down all season. In wins against South Dakota State, Central Florida, and South Carolina, the Tiger defense has held the opposition to just 2.8 yards per carry. But in a 49-24 win at Toledo and a 31-27 home loss to Indiana, Mizzou has surrendered just over 4.8 yards per rush. The Tigers gave up six rushing touchdowns in those two games, which is double the total from the other three games.
If Georgia’s running game is held to an average of 2.8 ypr, this game won’t be close.
