One thing Georgia and Missouri have in common is limiting explosive plays. Neither is particularly great at creating them, either. Check out these stats, via (where else?) cfbstats.com:
- Opponent Long Scrimmage Plays – Games vs. FBS (I-A) Teams Only: plays of 10+ yards — UGA 1st in the SEC, Missouri 2nd; plays of 20+ yards — UGA 1st, Missouri 4th
- Long Scrimmage Plays – Games vs. FBS (I-A) Teams Only: plays of 10+ yards — UGA 7th in the SEC, Missouri 9th; plays of 20+ yards — UGA 11th, Missouri 11th
This one’s shaping up to be as much of a grinder as last week’s game. That probably makes Kirby Smart a happy man.
