Munich / Athens – In the packed Sanford Stadium, the Georgia Bulldogs lived up to their favorite status. After a slow start, the offense turned to quarterback Stetson Bennett really on and showed no nakedness against the defeated Missouri Tigers.
Until well into the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs scored 40 points on the scoreboard without the Tigers being able to score themselves. Missouri itself didn’t get past two field goals.
Comeback for JT Daniels
Georgia, ranked first in the current college football playoff ranking, took her foot off the gas early in the second half and swapped passer in the process. JT Daniels, the real starter of the Bulldogs, was able to make his long-awaited comeback after a muscle injury.
Bennett and Daniels recorded a total of 337 passing yards and three touchdowns, Daniels also threw an interception. On the side of the Mizzou Tigers, two quarterbacks were also used: Brady Cook scored 78 yards, substitute Tyler Macon 74 yards.
The Bulldogs (9-0) will be visiting the Tennessee Volunteers (4-4) next week. The Tigers (4-5) host the South Carolina Gamecocks (4-4) in Columbia.
