Looking to Saturday

Well the Rebs are on the road this weekend to Athens to take on a very good Georgia Bulldog team. The Rebels always seem to play a good first half in Athens, but never seem to be able to pull out a win. It has been over ten years since the Rebels last won in Athens.

I think Ole Miss had a great game last week. However I just don't see it carrying over to a road win in Athens. It is a tough adjustment to go on the road with the type team we have and win in a place none of the players have ever been. I see Georgia coming off a very emotional win in Tuscaloosa that may have the vulnerable, but in the end I see UGA pulling this one out and winning by at least two possesions.

Here is a little info from UMAA on the Dogs:
The Bulldogs opened the 2007 season with a 16-12 home loss to South Carolina, but rebounded Saturday with a 26-23 overtime win at No. 16 Alabama. The Bulldog offense is averaging 364.0 yards of offense per game, 140.8 on the ground and 223.2 through the air.

Stafford has completed 70-of-123 passes for 569 yards with six TDs and three interceptions in the early goings of his sophomore season. WR Sean Bailey has been his primary target with 16 catches for 237 yards and one touchdown, while fellow senior Mikey Henderson has 11 grabs for 113 yards and a score.

Moreno, a redshirt freshman tailback, tops the team in rushing with 342 yards on 64 carries with two TDs, while senior Thomas Brown has 213 yards on 54 attempts with three rushing scores and two more off catches.
