College Football Week 2: #7 Georgia At Missouri
|Mark Richt is no stranger to the hot seat. But he led Georgia to 10 wins last season, including a 7-1 mark in conference. He has his team primed for a breakout season, if his team can navigate September without several key suspended players.||Coaching||Gary Pinkel is an underrated coach. Missouri has won at least eight games every season since 2006, and at least 10 three of the last five years. His weekly competition steps up a notch as Missouri transitions to the SEC.|
|Aaron Murray is one of the best quarterbacks in the country. He found three different receivers in the endzone on Saturday. More importantly, a Bulldog running back, freshman Todd Gurley, cracked the century mark.||Offense||James Franklin is the next great Missouri quarterback. The Tigers were 12th in the country in yards per game last season. Senior Kendial Lawrence is a solid back, and he rushed for 12 yards per carry in the opener.|
|The Bulldog defense was supposed to be a strength of the team since it returns 10 starters. But three of those starters—and a few other key members of the defense—were suspended for the season opener. How many will suit up on Saturday is still a question mark.||Defense||Missouri’s pass defense is not great and that spells trouble against Murray and the Bulldogs. Getting pressure on the quarterback is a must.|
|Gurley ran a kickoff back for a touchdown in Week 1, capping an impressive day.||Special Teams||The Tigers doubled Georgia’s special teams touchdown output, as Marcus Murphy returned two punts 70+ yards for scores.|
We'll just call it a tie
