Georgia at Missouri Final Analysis:

After the loss to Georgia last season, Missouri went on a tear winning 6 in a row and then beating Texas 33-16 in their bowl game. Mizzou started the season where they left off dominating overmatched Tennessee-Martin and Wyoming.Missouri’s biggest asset is that they are talented on both sides of the ball. Everyone knows how good Lock is, and even if Lock is off or doesn’t play, Mizzou can switch the script and rush the ball.Missouri’s stacked on defense where their linebacking corps is one of the best in the nation. Georgia’s a good team, but Mizzou has experience on both sides of the ball that should allow them to pull off the upset.I like Missouri straight up.NCAA Football Week 4 Pick: Missouri
