Against Missouri on Saturday it was a grind from start to finish Saturday night at Sanford Stadium, a white-knuckle ride for Georgia and Missouri with the top spot in the SEC East on the line. In the final eight minutes, the Bulldogs got an interception from a 320-pound senior defensive lineman and a career-long 48-yard field goal by a 175-pound freshman to help Georgia pull out 30-21 win.

The Bulldogs (9-0, 6-0 SEC), ranked No. 1 in the polls all season but No. 2 in this week’s first College Football Playoff rankings, had to battle against the Tigers (7-2, 3-2), ranked No. 12 by the CFP, to stay undefeated. The win was Georgia’s 26th in a row, the 24th straight on Dooley Field, and the program’s 25th consecutive SEC regular-season win.

It was a one-score game, 27-21, when big Nazir Stackhouse got the pivotal interception with 7:46 remaining. A few minutes later, Woodring, the freshman kicker, made it a two-score game with the 48-yarder with 3:57 to go in the game. Safety Javon Bullard sealed the win with an interception with 1:36 remaining.
