“Really proud of our team, proud of our seniors, proud of our leadership, proud of our staff, and proud of our support staff. It was some really tough conditions to play in today, and it just goes to show you that not everybody across the country loves football the way the kids do, especially in our conference, but they love it and they love it at Georgia.”
With a 2nd half offensive surge, #9 Georgia (7-2, 7-2 SEC) pulled away from #25 Missouri (5-4, 5-4 SEC) by a 49-14 final score Saturday afternoon in front of 10,830 fans at Faurot Field and an SEC Network television audience. Redshirt sophomore QB JT Daniels finished 16-for-27 passing for 299 yards and three touchdowns.
For the afternoon, the Bulldogs posted 615 yards on offense, the most for the team since 656 last season against Arkansas State. After scoring 91 points in its last two outings, the Missouri offense was held to just 200 total yards by the Georgia defense, with sophomore safety Lewis Cine leading in tackles for the second-consecutive game with four stops. Bulldogs head football coach Kirby Smart met with the media via Zoom following the game. Hear what he had to say here. Video is courtesy of the SEC.
