Mississippi State defensive coordinator Todd Grantham was no match for his former program on Saturday. The Georgia Bulldogs brought the hype on Mississippi State to a screeching halt with a 31-3 victory.
It should come as no surprise that the Bulldogs already are getting national recognition for their accomplishment. Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman put Georgia in his top 5 teams in Week 4, sliding the Bulldogs into the No. 4 slot.
One week after Miss State was the toast of the SEC, the nasty Dawgs D blasted MSU, 31-3 as they held Nick Fitzgerald to just 130 yards of offense with two INTs. Georgia FR Jake Fromm was the more efficient QB, going 9-of-12 for 201 yards and that included a couple of drops. Couple that with a nice road win at ND and the Dawgs resume looks pretty nice so far.
The win was a significant resume builder for Georgia, which toppled a Mississippi State program that handled a top 15 program in LSU the week prior. It bodes well for the national rankings for the Bulldogs, who could continue to climb in the Associated Press Top 25 after landing at No. 11 last week.
Feldman had Alabama No. 1 in his rankings.
