CBR Exclusive: Early Analysis: Missouri at Georgia

#25 Missouri (5-0, 1-0) at #7 Georgia (4-1, 3-0)

Saturday, Oct 12th, Noon EST, ESPN

Line: Georgia by 8 (and falling)

Last year, Georgia welcomed Missouri to the SEC by giving them a 21 point loss in their debut. Truth isn't always in the numbers as that game was a lot closer than the 41-20 final score indicated. The Bulldogs actually trailed in the third quarter before scoring the last 24 points of the game behind a monster game by Jarvis Jones.

So far this year Georgia has played the toughest schedule in the Nation and it's taking it's toll on the Bulldogs. The Dawgs stand at 4-1 but have now lost three of their top offensive weapons to season ending injuries. WR Malcolm Mitchell (40 rec in 2012), WR Justin Scott-Wesley (2nd leading receiver in 2013) and RB Keith Marshall (49 ypg in 2013) must now be replaced with the "next man up". Aaron Murray has stepped up this year with two clutch game-winning drives but can he continue to do so throughout the season?
