Comments

This is the SEC’s Bulldog Bowl. A lot of the outcome of this game depends on who will be the Mississippi State starting quarterback. Veteran Washington State graduate transfer QB K.J. Costello is questionable for the game. If he can’t play it’ll be true freshman Will Rogers getting thrown to the wolves. He had a solid game against Vanderbilt a couple of weeks ago but Georgia is a different animal. I’m guessing that Costello will not play in this one. State wants to beat Ole Miss in a couple of weeks and if Costello isn’t playing the Bulldogs will be at a big disadvantage. Georgia wins this one by over 20 points.
