Georgia football is coming off a sloppy game where the Dawgs beat Kent State 39-22. The Dawgs got a bit of a reality check, but it came at the right time. Now Georgia will focus on this meaty SEC stretch that will truly define the season.
Up first is a road trip against the Missouri Tigers, who always find a way to challenge the Dawgs at least for the first half of the game. Georgia needs to refocus and get back to what they were doing the first three weeks of the season.
This game is where the season truly takes off for the Dawgs and there is no room for mistakes at this point. While it looked like Georgia struggled against Kent State it wasn’t all that bad, and this week should feature a hungry Dawgs’ team ready to prove that last week was a one time thing.

Georgia Football vs. Missouri Tigers prediction for Week 5:
This matchup is an interesting one because Missouri is a scrappy team. Georgia should beat the Tigers, but who knows Missouri gave Auburn a fight too. Now the Dawgs are better than both of those teams, but at the same time you just never know.
Look at what happened last week with Kent State, no one expected that, and it happened. If Georgia refocuses and gets back to what they were doing Week 1-3, then the Dawgs should be just fine. The Dawgs should see their second SEC win against Missouri and move onto the next opponent.
The Dawgs could cover the spread against Missouri because this offense should overpower the Tigers’ defense. Look for them to hit on the over and the spread because this week Georgia will play mad.
Georgia football should see win No. 5 against Missouri and head back to Athens to take on Auburn in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry. The Dawgs don’t like looking bad, so this week it will be a tough time to be a Missouri Tiger.
