Battle of the Bulldogs: UGA heads to MS State

The Georgia Bulldogs will head to Mississippi State for their matchup on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Georgia is undefeated, ranking No.1 in both the AP and CFP polls.


Mississippi State

Although UGA is coming off a 27-13 win against Tennessee, Georgia has their work cut out for them in this weekend’s game.

Mississippi State is 6-3 overall and 3-3 in conference play. The question for Week 11 is whether or not the Mississippi State Bulldogs will be the ones to dethrone the Georgia Bulldogs and hand them their first loss. Georgia, though, is predicted to win.

Mississippi State has the home field advantage and is known for their “air raid” offense and passing yards. Their quarterback Will Rogers is ranked sixth in the nation in passing yards with 2,912 yards.

Running backs Dillon Johnson and Jo’quavious Marks will be the ones to keep an eye on in this game. Marks made the 5-yard run in overtime to win the game for Mississippi State against Auburn last weekend. Johnson is the team leader in rushing yards this season.

Although State can put up points, they will need a strong defense to stop Georgia.

Georgia Bulldogs

After the highly anticipated game against Tennessee, Georgia came out victorious and took back their No. 1 spot in the polls.

The last time these two Bulldog teams met was in 2020, and Georgia came out triumphant with a final score of 31-24. Rogers was only a freshman during that game but now has two years of experience under his belt.

Saturday is Georgia’s third road game this season.

Georgia will have to put up a defense to stave off the passing attack from Mississippi State, somewhat different from Tennessee’s offense.

The defense will be busy on Saturday keeping the Mississippi State Bulldogs at bay. Kelee Ringo and the rest of the defense will have to work to keep State in front of them.
