Georgia BulldogsAfter their “Grown Man Football” win at Missouri, the Georgia Bulldogs return home to host the Florida Atlantic Owls on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by CSS and

Georgia is ranked 7th in the country in both the AP Top 25 and USA Today Sports Coaches Top 25 for the second consecutive week. The Dawgs did pick up a few votes after their win in Columbia.

Florida Atlantic, a member of the Sun Belt Conference, has never met Georgia on the football field. The Owls come into the game 1-1 after beating Wagner 7-3 at home and falling to Middle Tennessee 31-17 on the road.

A win over FAU would give the Dawgs their first 3-0 start since the 2008 season. Georgia has started the season 3-0 six times under head coach Mark Richt.

Defensive back Sanders Commings and linebacker Chase Vasser will each be seeing their first action after serving a two game suspension to start the season. It remains to be seen whether safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree will be suspended for the game Saturday, but it’s likely they won’t play.

As we mentioned, the game will be available on CSS and ESPN3. For more information on how to view FAU at Georgia, we have put together an article with most of the viewing options.
