Challenges for Georgia

In its last game, Mississippi State held off a furious Auburn rally to win over the Tigers 39-33 in overtime. State hangs its hat on a pass-oriented offense that is averaging 406 yards per game including 325 of that by passing. Defensively, the Bulldogs are not the best but are sound. The dogs are 48th nationally in scoring defense (24.0 ppg). Quarterback Will Rogers has an amazing 1,044 completions for 73 touchdowns in 31 games played at Mississippi State. Georgia has to somehow slow that passing attack to win on Saturday.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
