Georgia vs Mississippi
The Georgia Bulldogs are the defending national champions and are very much on course to get back to the College Football Playoff.
After a huge win over then-No. 1 Tennessee last week, will they look past the struggling Mississippi State Bulldogs? If everyone brings their ‘A’ game, top-ranked Georgia rolls, but maybe Mike Leach’s squad can catch them off-guard.

Georgia Back Atop Polls
Georgia made its big national statement with a 27-13 win over Tennessee. The Dawgs’ defense was spectacular, limiting a high-powered Tennessee offense to just six points until late in the game when the Volunteers scored a meaningless touchdown.
Georgia’s secondary was brilliant, preventing Tennessee receiver Jalin Hyatt from busting loose. Hyatt scored multiple touchdowns and was a hugely productive player for the Vols in their 52-49 win over Nick Saban and Alabama earlier in the season.
That game lifted Tennessee to No. 1 in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the 2022 season. Georgia was ready and waiting for Hyatt and the other Tennessee receivers.
The Dawgs shut them all down and dealt a big blow to the Heisman Trophy candidacy of Vols quarterback Hendon Hooker.
Kirby Smart clearly has the best team in the country and now we get to see if Georgia can remain firmly in control of the Southeastern Conference and the college football world.
Because LSU beat Alabama, Georgia might not have to face the Crimson Tide this season. The Bulldogs are in a great position to win back-to-back national championships.
Mississippi State Perfect at Home
Mississippi State took a 24-6 lead over the Auburn Tigers last week and seemed to be on its way to a relatively easy win this past weekend.
Then the Bulldogs relaxed and got complacent. They watched a motivated, inspired Auburn team – led by an interim head coach, Carnell Williams (after previous coach Bryan Harsin got fired) – score 19 straight points for a 25-24 lead.
Mississippi State scrambled to tie on a last-second field goal and take the game into overtime and eventually won to move to 5-0 at home.
A loss would have extended the Bulldogs’ losing streak to three and probably sent their season into a downward spiral.
If they perform like they did in the first half against Auburn and Georgia is sleepy, Mississippi State might actually have a shot.
