Georgia-Mississippi State Prediction

It’s the battle of the Bulldogs this weekend in Starkville. This is another key series in the SEC. When you examine Georgia’s schedule they haven’t really been tested on the road in the SEC. They’ve had road series at South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee. Tennessee is the only team of those three currently at .500 or above in league play and Georgia lost that series in Knoxville. State is coming off a disappointing road series at Arkansas. Look for State to rebound and win this series. Mississippi State 2 wins, Georgia 1 win.
