Georgia-Mississippi State: Live updates, score
Final: Georgia 31, Mississippi State 3
The Bulldogs crushed their visiting canine namesakes – thoroughly domination in both sides of the ball. Georgia stopped MSU at the goal-line on the game’s final play to preserve the TD-shutout. Jake Fromm was cool, calm and collected – and appears to be Georgia’s quarterback of the present – if not – future.
0:55 Q3: Georgia 31, Mississippi State 3
Rodrigo Blankenship boots a field goal to all but put this one away – with more than full quarter to play. It’s going to a fun time in Athens tonight, starting very soon.
3:59 Q3: Georgia 28, Mississippi State 3
Dominick Sanders quickly makes it two interceptions, off a batted ball in the air. Sanders now ties Kirby Smart on Georgia’s career interception list, with 13, and is three away from tying record-holders Jake Scott and Bacarri Rambo.
5:46 Q3: Georgia 28, Mississippi State 3
You wanted to see UGA use its tight ends more? You got it. Fromm finds Isaac Nauta for 41-yards and a touchdown on a 3rd-and-1 following a UGA interception. Jim Chaney had opened his bag of tricks in the second half.
12:24 Q3: Georgia 21, Mississippi State 3
Nick Chubb scores his second touchdown of the game on a 28-yard run from the “Wild-Dawg” formation as UGA’s offensive line stuffed Mississippi State and Chubb took the ball around the left side and ran untouched into the end zone.
Halftime: Georgia 14, Mississippi State 3
After a late first-half Mississippi State field goal, the Bulldogs head to the locker room in control of this one – especially given the defense’s stellar play. Jake Fromm, meanwhile, went 8-for-8 for 160 yards and a TD.
5:43 Q2: Georgia 14, Mississippi State 0
Both defenses have settled down as we have gone a full quarter without a score. UGA completed its first three-and-out of the game.
6:16 Q1: Georgia 14, Mississippi State 0
And that looked like pre-injury Nick Chubb, with yards-after-contact for the 7-yard touchdown run.
It’s 14-0, Georgia, and this looks like total domination.
Jim Chaney has scripted it brilliantly so far, and Jake Fromm has made some great throws. Good blocking by the line on Fromm’s third down throw there – and a lack of an effective blitz from Todd Grantham’s defense.
12:37 Q1: Georgia 7, Mississippi State 0
Flea-flicker from Jake Fromm to Terry Godwin on UGA’s first play from scrimmage goes 59 yards for a TD and sends Sanford Stadium into bedlam. Jim Chaney brought his A-game tonight.

Georgia-Mississippi State Preview
3. Can Georgia slow down Nick Fitzgerald?
Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald is one of the more dynamic players in the country. In three games, Fitzgerald has accounted for 12 touchdowns, 7 passing and 5 rushing. It’s also a homecoming of sorts for Fitzgerald, as he is from Richmond Hill, located just outside of Savannah. Georgia showed it could slow down dual threat quarterbacks when it held Notre Dame’s Brandon Wimbush to just 19 points, but Fitzgerald represents a tougher task.
2. Does Todd Grantham get his revenge?
During his time in Athens, former Georgia defensive Todd Grantham wasn’t exactly a beloved figure, and a number of Georgia fans were more than happy to see him replaced by Jeremy Pruitt. Now Grantham returns, this time as the defensive coordinator for Mississippi State. In his first three games as the Bulldogs DC, Grantham’s defense has given up just 26 points. And last week he slowed LSU and star running back Derrius Guice to just 7 points.
Georgia will also be getting a visit from Jonathan Abram, a former Georgia defensive back, who ultimately transferred after Pruitt was not retained by Kirby Smart. Abram had some strong words for Georgia earlier this week.
“To get a chance to go between the hedges but on the opposite side … I mean, I just look forward to going in with my team and, honestly, just beating the brakes off of them,” Abram said.
1.Who plays at quarterback and how well do they play
Jacob Eason did return to practice this week, but his status is still up in the air as to whether or not he will be available thisi week. All signs point to freshman Jake Fromm getting the start. This will be his first SEC game, but Fromm already has a road win over Notre Dame under his belt.
And for what it’s worth, Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has spent much of the week raving about Fromm.
“You see a lot of what you look for in a quarterback. You can see it he has that competitive swagger,” Mullen said. “They do a really good job of not putting the game always on his shoulders. He has that leadership and that attitude that you look for at the quarterback position.”
