Stetson Bennett finished 24 of 44 passing for 312 yards. Brock Bowers led the Bulldogs in receiving with five receptions for 66 yards.
It was the third time that Bennett attempted 40 passes or more in his career. The previous two were in losses to Alabama in 2020 and 2021.
Georgia rushed for 169 yards on 36 attempts. Kenny McIntosh led his team on the ground with 65 yards on 10 attempts.
UGA outgained Missouri 481-294, but two turnovers in the first quarter kept its offense quiet. The Bulldogs did not score touchdown until the fourth quarter.

Fourth quarter, 9:39 update: Kendall Milton punches in Georgia’s first touchdown of the game from a yard out to make the score 22-19.
The run capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive to pull within three points for the first time since the first quarter. It was Milton’s fourth touchdown of the year, which leads all Georgia running backs. The Fresno, California native has 60 yards rushing and a score on seven attempts.
Fourth quarter, 14:09 update: The battle of the kickers continues with a 56-yard Missouri field goal. Harrison Mevis converted his fifth field goal in as many tries to put Missouri back ahead, 22-12.
Georgia’s defense had forced a three and out before a pass interference by Kelee Ringo kept Missouri’s drive alive. The Tigers ripped a 28-yard run to set up the kick.
Third quarter, 2:15 update: Georgia kicks the game’s fifth consecutive field goal, a 29-yarder.
UGA’s first two plays gained 45 yards before a false start on the Missouri 15 yard line set it behind the chains. Stetson Bennett threw a couple of errant passes on first and second down before a short third down completion.
Bennett has completed just 17 of 35 passes for 234 yards.
Third quarter. 4:31 update: Missouri responds swiftly with a 52-yard field goal of their own to take a 19-9 lead.

The two teams have traded field goals over the last four drives.
Third quarter, 5:53 update: Podlesny kicked a 29-yard field goal cut UGA’s deficit to 16-9. The kicker remains one of the few bright spots for Georgia after knocking through his third field goal in as many attempts.
The field goal capped a 16-play, 66-yard drive that ate 7:47 off the clock.
UGA’s last three drives have ended in field goals after five scoreless drives to start the game. It is the Bulldogs’ first time within a possession of the Tigers since 12:43 in the second quarter.
Halftime update: Jack Podlesny’s second field goal of the day, a 34-yarder, and cuts Missouri’s lead to 16-6.
Stetson Bennett has completed just 10 of 24 passes for 149 yards. Kendall Milton leads the team in rushing with 34 yards on three attempts.
Missouri has controlled the game at the line of scrimmage, limiting Georgia to just three yards per rush. The Tigers averaged 4.6 yards per rush in the first half.
“They’re knocking us off the ball,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said at halftime. “They’re whipping us up front and you can’t win in the SEC unless you win the line of scrimmage.”
Georgia’s offense has not been totally shut down, but two lost fumbles have severely limited its success. Missouri started four drives past their own 40 yard line.
If there is any silver lining for Georgia’s offense, it is that its last two drives have ended in points. Its five first drives ended in turnovers or punts.
Second quarter, 3:16 update: Missouri responds to Georgia’s first points with a field goal of its own to take a 16-3 lead.
Cody Schrader ripped a 63-yard run through the heart of the UGA front to put the Tigers on the one yard line. The Bulldog defense stood tall from there, utilizing a first down false start to keep Missouri out of the end zone.
The Tigers have amassed 194 yards of offense, compared to Georgia’s 118.
Second quarter, 6:36 update: Jack Podlesny cuts the Georgia deficit to 13-3 with a 40-yard field goal. Podlesny is now nine for 10 on conversions this season, perfect from inside 50 yards.
The Bulldogs marched 52 yards in eight plays, with an 18-yard Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint reception and a 33-yard catch from Brock Bowers moving the offense.
Georgia’s longest drive prior to the field goal was 35 yards and ended with a fumble.
Second quarter, 8:53 update: Missouri extended its lead to 13-0 with a 49-yard field goal, a short drive set up by Georgia’s second turnover of the game. Stetson Bennett and Daijun Edwards fumbled a read option play that Missouri recovered at the Georgia 36 yard line.
It was the fourth Missouri drive that started past the Tigers’ 40-yard line.
Jalen Carter also left the game with what appeared to be a lower body injury. Carter, who has been dealing with an ankle injury, took a low block to the leg and was spotted entering the medical tent.
Second quarter, 12:43 update: Missouri caps off a nine-play, 81-yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown pass. Brady Cook connected with a wide open Tyler Stephens, who fooled the Georgia defense with a fake slip screen.
Missouri leads 10-0.
The Tigers were boosted by a 36-yard scramble drill completion and a pass interference penalty.
Kamari Lassiter, who committed the pass interference penalty, also gave up the touchdown. Jamon Dumas-Johnson was spotted yelling at Lassiter on the Georgia sideline.
The UGA defense missed an uncharacteristic amount of tackles on the drive.
First quarter, 4:11 update: Missouri takes advantage of a short field and kicks a 41-yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead.
The Tigers drove 31 yards in six plays to set up the field goal.
Georgia was the last FBS team to not trail in a game this season going into today’s game.
First quarter, 7:41 update: Some of Georgia’s offensive troubles from its game against Kent State seemed to carry over to Columbia. UGA’s first three drives ended with two punts and a fumble with 28 yards of offense.
Georgia’s fumble came on the first play of its second drive. Kendall Milton ran untouched through the defensive front and covered 35 yards before coughing the ball up at the UGA 46 yard line.
The Bulldog ground game has struggled besides the Milton run, though, with minus-two yards on three attempts.
The good news for Georgia is it has only allowed two yards in two drives defensively.
The score sits idle at 0-0.

Georgia football returns to SEC play with a trip to Columbia, Mo. on Saturday against the Missouri Tigers.
The Bulldogs have been much more engaged against Power 5 opponents this season, winning by an average score of 48.5 to 5.
Still, Georgia readily admits it did not play up to its standard last week, as it came away with a 39-22 win over Kent State. Georgia did not punt in the game, but three turnovers and less than stellar second-half defense have the Bulldogs eager to deliver a better performance.
“Any time you go on the road in the SEC, we talk about it all the time, it’s tough to win on the road in the SEC,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. “I have a lot of respect for Eliah, the job he’s done, what he does offensively and defensively. They do a good job. I’ve always thought a lot about the job he does offensively and the issues they create defensively, as well. This year, they have big personnel upfront. They play physical.”
Missouri will have star freshman receiver Luther Burden available for this game, as there had been some speculation about his availability following a curious Auburn performance in which he was targeted just three times and did not have a catch.
The Tigers are coming off a back-breaking 17-14 overtime loss to Auburn. The Tigers missed a late field goal that would’ve won the game in regulation and then fumbled the ball through the end zone in overtime.
For Georgia, it will be worth watching what the Bulldogs do at the star position. Javon Bullard has manned the position for the first four games but he was arrested on DUI charges this past weekend. Smart has said that any discipline will be handled internally. The arrest comes a week after William Poole announced he would be stepping away from the team for the rest of the season.
The Bulldogs could move Christopher Smith into the star position, and slide Dan Jackson in at Smith’s safety spot. There is also Tykee Smith as an option as well.
