Comments

In the Tennessee-Mizzou preview, we discussed the possibility of a Tennessee letdown after their loss to Georgia. I think in this game it’s possible Georgia could show up ripe for a letdown. I say that because a couple of times this season Georgia has no-showed specifically their games with Missouri and Kent State. I don’t see Georgia losing to State but it may be a closer game than many predicted.
