ESPN's College Gameday may be in College Station, but the biggest game of the day is the one taking place in "the new Columbia" between Georgia and Missouri.
Georgia is the favorite in the SEC East due in large part to its schedule, which doesn't feature games vs. SEC West powers Alabama, LSU and Arkansas. As a result, some team is going to have to upset the Bulldogs in order to open up the division.
The team with the best chance of that is the Missouri Tigers.
With this being the first SEC game in Columbia, this will have that "Game of the Century" feel.
Considering cornerback Sanders Commings is suspended, cornerback Malcolm Mitchell is nursing an ankle injury and safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree will also likely sit out due to suspension, the door is wide open for Missouri to make a statement.
Georgia's defense is solid, but without several key pieces, Missouri quarterback James Franklin, running back Kendial Lawrence and wide receivers T.J. Moe and Dorial Green-Beckham will have some fun.
This one comes down to the leg of Georgia true freshman kicker Marshall Morgan on the road. Georgia fans won't have any fingernails left.
Score Prediction: Georgia 31, Missouri 28
