The Program: The Georgia Bulldogs Will Have Their Hands Full Against Missouri

Michael Felder@InTheBleachersNational CFB Lead WriterSeptember 5, 2012

The Georgia Bulldogs are traveling to Columbia, Missouri, as the "Welcome Wagon" from the SEC to the newcomer Mizzou Tigers. Georgia, a Top 10 team, is going to have to fix the issues exposed in the Buffalo game if it hopes to keep the dream of an undefeated season alive.

For the Tigers, this game is about introducing themselves to their new league-mates, and there would be no better way than with a win.

In this edition of The Program, we take a look at Georgia and how it will look to attack Missouri's defense. Todd Gurley emerged as a solid playmaker at the running back position, and Mizzou is going to have to stuff the box and protect itself from the SEC's bread and butter—running the football.

The Tigers, in protecting against the run, will also have to watch out for the play-action pass, something Aaron Murray runs to perfection.

Defensively, the Bulldogs will have a few major challenges. They need to keep containment on the quarterback and get bodies to the point of attack to stop both the running of Kendial Lawrence and quarterback James Franklin. In the pass game, not only are the receivers threats, but Franklin is a dangerous quarterback to let out of the pocket.

Here on The Program, we highlight the keys to the game with a little chalk talk for Georgia at Mizzou!
