(Missouri Football App) – While the Tigers know they'll have their hands full when taking on #7 Georgia this weekend, cornerback E.J. Gaines was among many players who said they relish the challenge.
“It is going to be an exciting and competitive game. We know that,” the senior Gaines said. “There is nothing better than playing against great competition and that is what you are going to see on Saturday in Georgia.”
The Bulldogs present the Tigers with their first serious test. If Indiana and Vanderbilt were in-semester exams, Georgia is a difficult midterm.
The extremely talented Bulldogs are big-game tested and fighting to stay in the national championship race.
The Tigers come into this contest with nothing to lose. A loss would not change this season’s expectations.
A win will have Tiger fans thinking about goals that most thought were not possible before the season.
