Aside from the fact that Texas surprisingly has themselves sitting ahead of Oklahoma at the moment, there’s another surprise happening in college football right now, and it’s happening over in the SEC to a team that many had favored to win the entire conference.

The Missouri Tigers have walked in between the hedges in Athens and are putting a beating on the Dawgs. Head coach Gary Pinkel and his team currently lead Georgia 28-10 just before the half.

Except for some costly Georgia mistakes, Missouri has been dominant, for the most part, especially on the ground. The high-powered Tigers have 91 rushing yards in this first half, an aspect of their game that the Georgia defense just doesn’t seem to have an answer for.

This fact can’t be better evidenced than by this play right here, a Marcus Murphy 36- yard TD scamper in the second quarter:

zouIf this keeps up, then the Dawgs will be in more jeopardy than they already find themselves in, which is a far cry from where we all thought they were after the victory over LSU.
