This weekend's NCAA football 2013 live stream and TV schedule will include several games featuring ranked opponents against each other. In one of the early games on the slate, the No.25-ranked Missouri Tigers visit the #7 Georgia Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium in Athens. The Bulldogs have been on a roll ever since stumbling in their opener with a loss against Clemson, and are now looking to keep climbing the top ten. Missouri would love to score the upset and move up higher themselves. The Missouri vs. Georgia televised and live stream NCAA football game is scheduled for presentation Saturday via ESPN's networks.
A Kansas City Star report from Oct. 10 indicates that Georgia leads the all-time series between these two teams two games to zero. They're favored to win on Saturday by 8 1/2 points or more, but Missouri may have a bigger prize to play for in terms of becoming legitimate SEC East Title contenders this season. A major upset over the Bulldogs could also start to get Missouri mentioned among those vying for the BCS National Championship this season. To get the win, the Tigers will need to put some serious pressure on quarterback Aaron Murray, and continue to exceed with their rushing game. Previous games for Georgia have been shootouts, but if Missouri limits the QB, it could be tough for the Bulldogs to keep up with the Tigers.
Georgia doesn't really rank at the top of any of the overall stats categories, although they're in the top 20 when it comes to passing yards. That's thanks to Aaron Murray who has had a stellar season so far. Murray has thrown for 1,534 yards and 14 touchdowns on 98-of-151 passing so far, which has been great in the absence of injured running back Todd Gurley. Gurley, as expected, is doubtful for Saturday's game. Other key injuries will include tailback Keith Marshall, as well as wide receivers Malcom Mitchell, Justin Wesley-Scott and Michael Bennett. That could be prime opportunity for the Tigers to take advantage of the banged-up squad and get themselves a major upset win.
Missouri currently ranks in the top ten for points for with 46.6 per game, and with their 258.8 rushing yards a game, they rank fifteenth in the nation. They've had an impressive dual-attack on the ground with Russell Hansbrough and Henry Josey racking up a combined 686 yards and nine touchdowns between then on over 100 carries. Quarterback James Franklin has also played well, throwing for 1,407 yards, with thirteen touchdowns on 114-for-168 passing. At 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the SEC, this will be Mizzou's first big test, before two more big games follow: back-to-back home games against No.17 Florida and No.14 South Carolina.
