Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Stetson Bennett (13) reacts after receiving a Georgia offensive penalty in the second quarter against the Missouri Tigers in an NCAA football game Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022, at Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium in Columbia.
Columbia, Mo. — Georgia is clearly not the best team in the country. It couldn't be in a game where it didn't take the lead until 4:03 remained in the fourth quarter.
The Bulldogs were able to chip away at Missouri's lead though and come away with a 26-22 victory. Georgia moves to 5-0 on the season and 2-0 in SEC play.
The final score indicated just how much of a struggle it was for the Bulldogs. They trailed nearly the entire game, had multiple turnovers and didn't score a touchdown until the midway point of the fourth quarter.
Georgia's overwhelming talent advantage proved crucial for the Bulldogs, as Missouri very clearly ran out of gas in the fourth quarter.
Georgia's offensive line finally got some steam and salted the game thanks to some strong running by Deajun Edwards late.
He picked up multiple first downs on Georgia's final drive and scored the game-winning touchdown with 4:03 left.
