Georgia and Mississippi State both enter the game with division-worst 0-2 records in conference play, meaning that the loser takes the early yet no-so-proud lead of last place overall.
“When you think about the situation that we’re in, there’s going to be added pressure,” outside linebacker Cornelius Washington said. “If we come out of this game with a loss, we’re definitely at the bottom. But we’re going to stay focused and stay hunting for that ‘W.’”
Luckily for Georgia, history is on its side.
The SEC’s two Bulldogs schedule each other more sporadically than other conference opponents, with only four games in the last two decades.
