Georgia will beat Ole Miss because they are just flat better and must win this game no matter how flat, unlucky, sloppy or whatever could cause the Dawgs to look anything but impressive. However, I think that the Dawgs will look impressive in this game even if the do not cover the surprising 15 point spread.

Georgia should be able to run and pass with equal aplomb in this game against the weakest defense in the SEC. I would like to see Sean Bailey and Mohamed Massaquoi get over five catches each. I would also like to see Tripp Chandler rebound with several confidence building grabs. On the runs, Thomas Brown and Knowshon Moreno will continue to share carries and catches out of the backfield. Don't be surprised if Knowshon goes over 100 yards rushing today.

Our defense will need to slam the door on BenJarvus Green-Ellis and force Ole Miss to throw - which, incidentally, is their strength. However, if we get an early lead and force them into a steady passing mode, our dbs will get a great workout and an opportunity to sharpen their skills before heading up to Knoxville next week. I have no doubt that Seth Adams will get over 200 yards through the air, but I do expect those yards to come between the 20's and the Dawgs defense will stiffen in the red zone to keep Ole Miss under 17 points.

We should have a good day on special teams both in the return game and on Coutu's foot. As I always say, with Mikey Henderson, it is not a matter of "if" it is a question of "when?" Maybe today. That would be nice.

After a physical game in which Georgia will slowly and methodically put 30 points on the board, the Dawgs will prevail 30-16.
