The Georgia Bulldogs utterly demolished arch-rival Florida Gators in Week 9, leading the question to be asked: Will Georgia lose a single game in 2023?
Taking a look at their remaining schedule and potential SEC Championship Game appearance, the answer is clear.
Will Georgia Lose a Game this Year?
Simply put: probably not. But all we can limit it to is the regular season. And even then, it’s not guaranteed.
After cruising to a victory over Florida, 43-20, the Bulldogs looked more like their dominant self than they had all season long. But the road indeed gets much more difficult going forward.
Ahead of Georgia are three straight games against top-25 ranked opponents. Here’s how we’d rank the remaining Georgia opponents in 2023.
#4 – at Georgia Tech
The Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate matchup will pit these in-state rivals together once again to end the season. However, unlike the rivalry of old, this series has been and is likely to continue to be dominated by the Bulldogs.
Georgia Tech is still in rebuild mode, though they do have former SEC QB Haynes King making their games incredibly interesting this season. They were, after all, the other team that came from behind and defeated Miami when the Hurricanes should’ve kneeled the ball.
ESPN’s FPI gives Georgia a 92.6% chance of winning this game.
#3 – vs. Missouri
We’ve seen the best of Brady Cook, and it’s been Missouri Tigers’ OC Kirby Moore extracting that out of him. This game could very well be a showcase game for Moore as he is on a warpath with a head coaching gig very soon.
However, as we saw with Missouri when they played LSU, the defense was very susceptible and the offense made some uncharacteristic mistakes against even a hapless LSU defense. Missouri would have to play a perfect game to compete with this Georgia team.
ESPN’s FPI gives Georgia an 81.5% chance of winning this game.
#2 – vs. Ole Miss
Lane Kiffin will certainly have his Rebels ready to play in this contest, and they have the quarterback to give the Bulldogs some trouble potentially. Jaxson Dart has proven to be an elite signal-caller and really taken his game to the next level under Kiffin’s tutelage.
However, Ole Miss seems to be a red-hot team that seemingly cools off as each game goes on. Georgia can grind out a victory in this contest if they play the way they did against Florida.
ESPN’s FPI gives Georgia a 68.6% chance of winning this game.
#1 – at Tennessee
The toughest contest remaining on the Georgia schedule is absolutely at Tennessee. Playing in Knoxville is difficult for any team, but this game is a ways away. The Vols have to go through road trips to Kentucky and Missouri before getting Georgia and could very well be banged up in the process.
Tennessee’s offense has been far too lackluster and too inconsistent to put much fear into the Bulldogs defense at this time, but the advantage of playing in Neyland Stadium is good enough to make this the toughest game on the schedule.
ESPN’s FPI gives Georgia a 64.4% chance of winning this game.
