Line: Georgia 4 1/2.

Series Record: Georgia leads 1-0.

Last Meeting: 2006, Georgia, 14-13 in Athens.


Georgia is reeling after three straight losses. The Bulldogs need a win just to keep this season from completely falling apart.


Georgia’s defense vs. Colorado‘s offense. The Buffaloes like to pass, but they have given up eight sacks. The defense had a hard time getting off the field against Mississippi State, allowing too many third-down conversions.


Georgia: WR A.J. Green. The Dogs’ star returns from his NCAA-imposed four-game suspension. But he can’t do it by himself. QB Aaron Murray has been running for his life and the running game non-existent as the offensive line has been poor at best.

Colorado: RB Rodney Stewart. He has 253 yards rushing this season. If Georgia generates a pass rush, Stewart might get additional carries to try to slow the Dogs’ defense.


This weekend, Colorado is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its 1990 national championship. … The Buffaloes are looking for back-to-back wins for the first time since starting the 2008 season with three straight wins. … Colorado opened this season with a win over Colorado State, then lost to Cal, then beat Hawaii. … The only other SEC team to play at Colorado was LSU, which won 44-0 in 1979.
