The Georgia Bulldogs (1-2, 0-1 SEC) hit the road for the first time this season to take on the Ole Miss Rebels (1-2, 0-1 SEC). The game will be televised by the SEC Network at 12:21 p.m. ET. It will also be broadcast on ESPN GamePlan and ESPN3.
Some have dubbed the game the “Hot Seat Bowl” due to the current head coaching situations at both schools. Mark Richt is under fire after going 6-7 in 2010 and starting 0-2 in 2011. Houston Nutt went 4-8 in 2010 and is 1-2 this season, including a loss to Vanderbilt last week.
Both schools are looking to get their first SEC win of the season and get back to .500 overall.
