Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders

Middle Tennessee State redshirt junior WR Patrick Smith snagged three touchdowns in a 61-37 blowout of Tennessee Martin on Saturday. A breakout game for Smith? The 6-foot, 185-pound wideout had decent production as a sophomore with 29 catches for 329 yards, but nothing like this. Brent Stockstill and Smith connected on touchdowns from 5, 35, and 26-yards out, respectively. The Blue Raiders have a ton of talent in their wide receiver ranks, so we'll wait to see if Smith has this kind of production again before going too crazy. It's probably not happening next Saturday against Georgia.

Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia announced Thursday morning that Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee State has been moved up from 7:15 p.m. ET Saturday to noon ET Saturday due to Hurricane Florence. The university's press release stated that the decision came "[a]fter extensive evaluation involving the uncertainty of weather conditions on the East Coast, and consideration of all constituencies involved including fans, support staff, and law enforcement." The game will be now televised on ESPN News. UGA-MTSU is the 11th game this weekend that has been impacted by Hurricane Florence.

Betting Trends

Middle Tennessee

The Blue Raiders are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus SEC opponents.

Georgia

The Bulldogs are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games overall and are 5-2 against the number in their last seven non-conference games.

Prediction

If Georgia is motivated, the Bulldogs should rout the Blue Raiders this afternoon. Middle Tennessee opened the season with a 35-7 loss at Vanderbilt. What’s Georgia going to do to them today? The Bulldogs have scored 40 or more points in their first two games for the first time since 2012 and they have two quarterbacks that can lead the offense. This should be a blowout today.
