CFB Preview: Georgia vs. Missouri

The No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs are on the road this weekend as they head to Missouri for an SEC matchup.

Georgia Head Coach Kirby Smart said playing in Missouri will be a tough atmosphere for his team. Smart also talked about his team’s running game and it’s importance to quarterback Jake Fromm.

Missouri Head Coach Barry Odom said his team is excited to get the opportunity to play against one of the best teams in the country.
