ATHENS — Georgia’s defense knows Missouri quarterback Drew Lock will present a challenge, and they are all about doing their part.
“Our offense has been putting 40 on everybody but there’s gonna come a game where they can’t score 40, or might not be able to score,” Rice said, “and we’re gonna have to score on defense, or we’re gonna to have to get a stop.”
There’s about a 50-50 chance the Bulldogs will score 40 or more points on the Tigers, but to Rice’s point, the Georgia defense might need a stop.
“We can’t all just put it on [Elijah] Holyfield, and [D’Andre] Swift and Jake Fromm’s back to win us the game,” Rice said.
