1 seed Georgia stumbled out of the Missouri gates, trailing 16-6 in the first half after struggling offensively and turning the ball over twice. Missouri only entered 2-2 after a heartbreaking loss at Auburn last week, but the Tigers looked like a defensive force in the first half as the Bulldogs faced their biggest deficit of the season.
The last time Georgia came back from a first-half double deficit to win a game at the 2018 Rose Bowl was when Dawgs trailed 31-17 before winning 54-48 to secure a place in the College Football Playoff National Championship.
Georgia totaled only four first defeats on its first six possessions as quarterback Stetson Bennett completed 10 of 24 passes. Dogs looked surprisingly weak defensively as well. After three on Missouri’s first two possessions, the Tigers scored in their next four series with a 9-play touchdown drive, 81 yards highlighting the stretch. They missed another opportunity to score at the 1-yard streak late in the second quarter, instead settling on a field goal. Will he come back to chase Mizu?
