COLUMBIA - Despite losing Heisman candidate Todd Gurley, the No. 13 Georgia Bulldogs blanked the No. 23 Missouri Tigers 34-0. Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk threw four interceptions and the defense wasn't able to stop the Georgia rushing attack. This was the first time Missouri was shut out at home since 2002.

The Tigers got the ball first, but were forced to punt. On Georgia's opening drive, the Bulldogs marched down the field to get on the board first with a 47-yard field goal.

Mauk threw his first interception on the Tigers' next possession. After the Missouri defense forced a punt, Mauk doubled his interception total to set up Georgia deep in Missouri territory. The Bulldogs added another field goal to go up 6-0.

The Bulldogs got the ball back after the Tigers had another empty possession. On the opening drive of the second quarter, Georgia went 71 yards down the field and finally got a touchdown to go up 13-0. Quarterback Hutson Mason deceived the Missouri defense by keeping the ball on a read-option and scampered into the endzone from 11 yards out.

The Missouri offense remained stagnant and after another punt, the Bulldogs started to pull away. Mason completed several passes before running back Nick Chubb broke a big run to set up Georgia deep in Missouri territory. Mason capped off the drive with a nine-yard touchdown to Michael Bennett to push the Bulldogs' lead to 20-0.

Neither team could get on the board for the rest of the quarter as the Tigers went into the locker room down 20-0.

Things didn't improve in the second half. Mauk tossed his third pick on Missouri's opening possession of the third quarter. Georgia wasn't able to capitalize on this turnover, but the Bulldogs would cash in minutes later.

Mauk threw his fourth interception midway through the third quarter. The quarterback had thrown four interceptions this entire season before today's contest. Georgia returned the pick to midfield and used its running game to add another touchdown. Running back Brendan Douglas leaped into the endzone to extend the Georgia lead to 27-0.

Mizzou's offense continued to struggle for the rest of the game. The Bulldogs were content to run out the clock and Chubb added a late touchdown for good measure to seal the deal.

Georgia improves to 5-1 and 3-1 in the SEC while Missouri falls to 4-2 and 1-1 in conference play. The Tigers will travel to Florida next weekend to play the Gators.
