2012 Top 25 College Football Games of the Year
#18 Georgia Bulldogs @ Missouri Tigers

Georgia (-4.5) @ Missouri

Missouri Tigers FootballThe Missouri Tigers are moving into the SEC this year, and they are going to have a heck of a battle right off the bat when they take on their first foe from the SEC East, as they will fight it out with the Georgia Bulldogs. Both of these teams are going to hope to challenge this year in the conference, but both know that this is going to be the start of a heck of a year that could prove to be difficult for both clubs. Don’t miss out on our Georgia @ Missouri picks in the first SEC game of the season for both clubs.

Georgia Bulldogs @ Missouri Tigers Picks & Info
Georgia Bulldogs @ Missouri Tigers Date: Saturday, September 8th
Georgia Bulldogs @ Missouri Tigers Location: Farout Field, Columbia, MO
Georgia Bulldogs @ Missouri Tigers Spread: Georgia Bulldogs -4.5

The Bulldogs started off the year at 0-2 last season, only to go on a great run to get all the way to the SEC Championship Game. They ended up losing their last two games of the year though, and they aren’t going to want to be in that situation once again in 2012. This is a very tough game though, as Georgia is becoming the first team in the SEC to take a trip to Columbia. Fifteen starters return, but the man of the hour is going to be QB Aaron Murray. Murray is just a junior, but he already is showing the promise of being one of the best quarterbacks, not just in the SEC, but in the nation as well. He is really doing well following the footsteps of QB Blaine Gabbert, and that’s a great sign moving forward for the Dawgs. This defense could really be tested though, as the nine starters that return are going to be facing the type of task that they haven’t really had to deal with in recent years. It’s been quite some time since Georgia has had to play a team out of the Big XII, and this is going to be a totally different contest from the normal SEC games.

Georgia Bulldogs vs. Missouri Tigers Past Games (Since 1995)

The Tigers are going to have to win this game with their offense. We just don’t think that their defense is going to be able to stop the Georgia offense, especially this early in the year with just six starters returning. Offensively, the keys are really in place for something special. QB James Franklin is in his second year under center, and RB Henry Josey might be able to poke some holes in that Georgia defensive line. WR TJ Moe is back as well, as are three of the offensive linemen from last year. Senior and junior leadership is all over the place this year for Mizzou, and this is the unit that is going to have to step it up if there is going to be a victory over the Bulldogs in the first game of the team’s time in the SEC.

Georgia @ Missouri Free Picks^^: It’s going to be a challenge, but we think that Missouri is going to figure out how to make this a very, very close game. Georgia might have been a tad overrated last year, knowing that it got to dodge the best teams in the SEC West. We aren’t so sure how the Tigers are really going to stack up when they have to take on Alabama, Arkansas, and LSU, but we do think that they have the ability to win this game, especially in front of the hometown crowd here at Farout Field.
