Gametime 2012 – Ole Miss at Georgia

Georgia-Ole Miss

UGA defeated Ole Miss 27-13 last season. Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

On Saturday, the #6 Georgia Bulldogs (7-1, 5-1 SEC) host the Ole Miss Rebels (5-3, 2-2 SEC). The game will be televised by CBS at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Georgia is coming off of an emotional win over then 2nd-ranked Florida in Jacksonville. The Dawgs hope to maintain the energy level and defensive intensity from that game.

A win over Ole Miss would bring Georgia within one game of clinching the SEC Eastern Division title and a trip to Atlanta for the Championship Game. If Georgia wins, the Bulldogs would need a victory at Auburn on Nov. 17 to play in the Dome.

Ole Miss, led by first-year head coach Hugh Freeze, arrives at Sanford Stadium with back-to-back wins against Auburn and Arkansas. The Rebels have also defeated Tulane, UCA, and UTEP and lost to Texas and Texas A&M.

The Bulldogs beat the Rebels last year 27-13 in Oxford to extend their overall series lead to 31-12-1. Georgia hasn’t loss to Ole Miss since a 31-27 upset in Athens in 1996.

This weekend is Homecoming at UGA and several events are planned, including an autograph signing featuring Coach Vince Dooley and former players Rex Robinson and Scott Woerner.
