Missouri vs. Georgia: preview and predictions

COLUMBIA - This year, I'm hosting a weekly Mizzou football webcast to get you ready for gameday. Every week, I'll breakdown three things you need to know about the upcoming matchup. This week, Mizzou hosts Georgia on Saturday, October 11 at 11 a.m.

Note: To hear from the team and check out Georgia's highlights, watch the video.

1. Todd Gurley Suspended: Mizzou caught a huge break with Todd Gurley's suspension. Nick Chubb was a 5-star recruit, but he's not the frontrunner to win the Heisman. 

2. Hutson Mason: Georgia quarterback Hutson Mason is the definition of a game manager. He's thrown for less than half as many yards per game as Aaron Murray did last season. 

3. Leonard Floyd: Georgia and Wyoming are the only two defenses that haven't allowed a play over 40 yards this season. And it starts up front with No. 84, Leonard Floyd, who ESPN actually ranked as a better NFL Draft prospect than Todd Gurley. 

Prediction: With Gurley suspended, I think the Tigers will win and take control of the SEC East. 

Missouri 27

Georgia 20
