Georgia makes SEC statement in rout of Mississippi State

'Chicks dig the check down' is advice Miss State QB Nick Fitzgerald got from Dan Mullen

In what was supposed to be a close battle, No. 11 Georgia bulldozed No. 17 Mississippi State 31-3 to stay undefeated and get their first SEC win of the season.

And all that stand between the Bulldogs and a crack at the Top 10 is a victory over the 11th-ranked Bulldogs of Georgia.

Georgia leads the all-time series 18-6, including 10 in a row in Athens.

Georgia lined up in a two wide receiver set and Fromm handed the ball to Chubb, who tossed it back to Fromm. This was a career long for both Fromm and Godwin.

Saturday night's game is all about opportunity.

The teams have proven to be among the nation's best in the first half of the season as LSU earned a No. 14 ranking and Mississippi State picked up a No. 47 ranking in the NCAA's first Ratings Percentage Index that was released Monday. Georgia finished with a 31-3 beatdown of Mississippi State.

It's the best way possible for Georgia to start their point production for the evening. Last week he passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more in their victory over LSU.

Robert Cessna's pick

There's just not a whole lot of history between Georgia and Mississippi State. "For him to come out here and put on the show that he did and make the plays and make the changes that he did, he helped us come out with the W. It makes my job very easy, because him back there knowing the coverages, knowing when to change the plays, knowing what to change them to, that just gives us momentum". "Our mantra all week was discipline, discipline, discipline".

MSU has rolled through its three opponents this fall, winning each game by at least 30 points to make an early statement.

Fromm had zero incomplete passes through the first quarter, and then if that wasn't impressive enough, he remained flawless through the second stanza. Georgia rushed for 201 yards and Nick Chubb scored on a 7-yard run in the first quarter and a 28-yard run out of the Wild Dawg formation in the third. It is rare when we see true greatness in a Bulldog team. It's the start of a five-game run against SEC East opponents that have not distinguished themselves thus far. Soon after all-everything quarterback Nick Fitzgerald threw a pass in the right flat for Mississippi State to Aeris Williams, Carter smacked the running back for a six-yard loss.

A 41-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Nauta and a 49-yard field goal by Rodrigo Blankenship capped the scoring for the Bulldogs.

The way Georgia's defense was playing, that was plenty. It was something head coach Kirby Smart saw on film that he believed would work early in the game. He had 81 yards on 15 carries. "I'm not going to sit here and say we've arrived, because I don't think that's the case. They have worked really hard with the defensive group".

NOTES: Georgia QB Jacob Eason dressed out for the first time since spraining his left knee in the first quarter against Appalachian State in the season opener. Also, the game ended with a stop by the UGA defense at the 2.
