Somehow, Kent State has been the 4-0 Georgia Bulldogs biggest test to this point, but still they took a 39-22 win over their MAC opponent. Now, the SEC slate begins, but the reigning National Champs have it easy in the first part of their conference schedule. Already with a win over South Carolina, the Bulldogs get 2-2 Missouri this week, then Auburn and Vanderbilt before heading to the Swamp and really kicking off their gauntlet.

Georgia vs. Missouri Prediction and Pick

The Georgia Bulldogs are incredible on both sides of the ball and might have a more historically dominant defense than they did a year ago. Sure, they gave up 22 points to Kent State, but they absolutely sleep walked through that game and still won by 17 points.

Stetson Bennett looks much better than he did a year ago, and people are considering him a legitimate Heisman candidate, but he might not even be the best Heisman candidate on his own offense. Brock Bowers has three rushing touchdowns on four carries for 82 yards this season and is the teams leading receiver with 15 catches for 276 yards and two more touchdowns. Bowers is insanely dynamic and leads the best tight-end room in the country by far. 

Through the Bulldogs first three games, two of which were against Power-5 opponents, they allowed just one touchdown and it came in the fourth quarter of Week 3. This defense can absolutely get after any team in the country, especially a Missouri Tigers offense that is ranked 78th in the nation. 

There are maybe four teams in the entire country that can even play this Georgia team close let alone beat them. No surprise, Missouri does not make that list. 

Pick: Georgia -28
