One week after a 30-6 win over Vanderbilt, #3 ranked UGA hosts the Murray State Racers.
This contest represents another chance for SEC East stalwhart Georgia to gain its bearings before meeting Notre Dame to end their opening month. Meanwhile, well known for an NCAA Tournament mainstay basketball program, Murray State looks to showcase its football talent vs. FBS championship contender UGA.
Murray State Racers
The Racers blew past in-state NAIA rival Pikeville 59-20 last week. Now, Murray State finds itself in the massive underdog role opposite Georgia.
Racers QB Preston Rice completed 20-of-31 passes vs. Pikeville, while gaining another 50 yards on 11 carries. Rice’s two touchdown strikes found frosh Jacob Bell and sophomore LaMartez Brooks. Bell and Brooks combined for 159 recieving yards.
The Murray State rushing attack, which totalled 249 yards, added four touchdowns and punctuated the team’s 465 yards of total offense.
Murray State’s defense held Pikeville to 245 yards overall and the Racers dominated time of possession by just over 15 minutes.
Much hyped a year after losing another high-stakes title challenge vs. Alabama, Georgia began its 2019 by shutting down Vanderbilt in Vanderbilt.
The UGA offensive line toyed with the Commodores’ defensive front as Heisman-hopeful RB DeAndre Swift logged 147 yards of Georgia’s 479 overall yards.
Adjusting to his new receiving corps, Jake Fromm showcased his finely honed game management skills while completing 15-of-23 passes for one touchdown against no interceptions.
Five star reciever Demetris Robertson caught UGA’s lone aerial score while backfield standouts Brian Herrien and James Cook each scampered for one touchdown run.
Offensively, UGA remained conservative vs. Vandy and gave its touted offensive line almost 35 minutes to work downfield. The cohesion built up front will pay dividends later vs. stiffer competition. Defensively, Georgia snuffed a talented Commodores offense, holding Vandy to just 225 overall yards.
Fast and hard-hitting, the Bulldogs’ defense could become a force heading into a tough schedule.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
Don’t expect much run this week from UGA’s first, or even second team talent following the opening quarter. This contest will serve as brief in-game repetition for the Bulldog’s marquee talent before becoming a rare spotlight for UGA reserve QB Stetson Bennett and many unheralded practice hustlers.
Meanwhile, seizing their 2019 highlight, Murray State will compete with abandon and savor each rare positive gain vs. the Dawgs in Athens.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Murray State +49 / Strong Lean Under
With no official odds set as of Monday for this Saturday’s David vs. Goliath matchup, UGA’s staunch defense and conservative offense ended almost 15 points under their expected week one total.
Look for much of the same today from Georgia, just against an opponent well beneath Vanderbilt’s caliber. Murray State should cover the 49 point spread, however.
