Missouri vs. Georgia Football Series History

Georgia leads 11-1

COMMENTS

Missouri comes into this one with a nice 7-1 record. However, their final four game stretch look tough, starting with the Georgia Bulldogs this weekend in Athens. For the past two years anyone who picked Georgia to lose a game was wrong. I’m sticking with the trend here.
