Georgia has lost 7 of their last 8 games and currently rank T-125th in scoring offense, 161st in FG%, and 94th in defensive FG%.
Ole Miss is a solid team, however, Georgia is a team that you can’t overlook when you play them at Stegeman Coliseum as the Bulldogs have an impressive 8-4 record at home this season, including a recent 98-88 victory agianst Texas. Georgia is a solid offensive team that should have some success agianst an Ole Miss team that has struggled as of late and as I think this game will come down to the wire, I’m taking Georgia and the points.
