The Murray State Racers and the Georgia Bulldogs meet in a week 2 college football matchup from Sanford Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Murray State Racers will look to pull off a major upset after starting the year with a 59-20 win over Pikeville College in their season opener. Preston Rice threw for 170 yards and 2 touchdowns on 20 of 31 passing while Brendan Bognar’s lone completion went for 46 yards and a score. Jared McCray had a team-high 76 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns while Rodney Castillo had 63 rushing yards and 2 rushing scores of his own. Jacob Bell had a team-high 72 receiving yards and a touchdown on 4 catches while LaMartez Brooks had a touchdown and Rodney Castillo had a team-high 6 catches. Brion Sanchious added a touchdown grab of his own in the winning effort. Defensively, the Racers held Pikeville to 245 yards of total offense in the game.
The Georgia Bulldogs will look to build on a 30-6 season-opening victory over Vanderbilt in their last outing. Jake Fromm threw for 156 yards and a touchdown on 15 of 23 passing while D’Andre Swift had 149 rushing yards on a team-high 16 carries. Brian Herrien had 65 rushing yards and a touchdown and Zamir White had 51 rushing yards while James Cook added a rushing touchdown as well in the win. Lawrence Cager had a team-high 41 receiving yards while Demetris Robinson had a team-high 3 catches for 23 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, Devonte Wyatt had a fumble recovery while Monty Rice and Mark Webb each had a team-high 4 tackles as Georgia held Vanderbilt to 225 yards of total offense in the game.
Trends will be updated once they’ve been released.
I’d like to give Murray State a chance here as laying this many points is just asking for a backdoor cover with a touchdown when Georgia decides to take their foot off of the gas. However, Georgia flexed some serious muscle on the road against Vanderbilt, and with this game being the Bulldogs’ home opener, I can see Georgia wanting to rack up some points for the home crowd so if you have to pick this game, I’d lay the points with Georgia here.
