Georgia football earned its ninth straight win on Saturday against Missouri as the Dawgs took the Tigers to the woodshed 43-6.
The Dawgs make it eight games in a row beating opponents by at least 17 points. While Georgia fans like to be nitpicky about the team’s performance, that statistic is pretty incredible.
It’s never wrong to expect perfection from a team, but they’re human, so know that mistakes will happen. Even if the Missouri game didn’t go nearly as we all expected it to, the Dawgs still kept the pace on the season and blew out another opponent.
They came out a bit flat, and the game was far from perfect, but every No.1 team seems to have one of those, and well, I’m not saying this was one of those, but the Dawgs had to play harder than they intended on doing against Missouri.
The Tigers wanted to make the Dawgs work for it, and they sure did, but still lost by 37 points.
Georgia football improved to 9-0 on the season and is on the warpath — here are our takeaways from that impressive blowout victory.
Georgia used their abundance of playmakers to their advantage, and even when they couldn’t run the ball like they wanted to, they could still score almost at will.
Losing Jamaree Salyer stung a bit more than they needed it to, but the Dawgs worked it out in the end. They met their point goal. They scored 43 points — for most teams, that is a heck of a game, and they would take it. However, it’s clear this team holds itself to a higher standard, and until they meet those, they will never be happy.
After watching the game, here are nine takeaways from the Dawgs win over Missouri that made them 9-0 on the season.
