Challenges for Georgia

Kent State is a team Georgia can’t afford to overlook. Yes, Georgia should thrash the Flashes but this team isn’t the worst of worst opponents. They trailed just 7-3 at halftime at Oklahoma but ran out of gas in the second half. Upsets happen, that’s why they call them upsets.

Quarterback Collin Schlee leads the Flashes’ offense. So far this season Schlee has completed 33 of 55 passes for 508 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. In his most recent game against LIU, Schlee connected on 10 of 12 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SECN+/ESPN+ Network.
