Missouri has one all-time win over Georgia. Fittingly, it was a big win for the Tigers.

Missouri had their best season in the SEC in 2013, when they advanced to the SEC Championship Game. A big reason Mizzou won the SEC East was their 41-26 victory in Athens, Georgia, over Aaron Murray and the Georgia Bulldogs.

Quarterback James Franklin scored a pair of touchdowns for the Tigers. UGA closed a 28-10 deficit to 28-26, but the Dawgs could never take the lead.

What happened during Missouri’s last trip to Athens? UGA won 27-0 behind a four Rodrigo Blankenship field goals and a big two touchdown game from wide receiver George Pickens.

The Georgia Bulldogs shut out the Missouri Tigers and held them under 200 yards. Missouri’s defense played well, but it failed to force any turnovers.

Can 2021's version of Missouri pull off the upset?

The 4-4 Missouri Tigers have lost a few blow out losses (home against Tennessee and Texas A&M) and a few close games (at Boston College and at Kentucky). For the Tigers to keep the 2021 game close, they must limit their turnovers.

Quarterback Connor Bazelak has thrown too many interceptions this season. He has to take care of the football to have a chance against UGA’s stout defense.

Missouri’s defense has been porous, but they still have a fair amount of talent. Their defense will look to stop UGA on third down and force a couple of turnovers to give themselves a better chance at winning.
