Despite a 4th quarter come back win on the road, Georgia dropped to No. 2 in the AP Top 25 College Football Poll and USA Today AFCA Coaches Poll released on Sunday.

Alabama defeated No 20. Arkansas on Saturday and took the top spot in both polls.

Kirby Smart addressed winning and improvement with dawgnation.com

“You gotta make it about yourself. You gotta make it about improvement,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. “About us getting better and not always talking about the opponent. I thought our guys bought into the wantness and having each others’ back. There were guys saying it in the locker room at halftime. There was a lot of confidence in that locker room. That was a program win in a game we did not play very well.”

On paper the game should not have been that close. The Bulldogs even outgained the Tigers in total yards 505 to 273. They also had 25 first downs to Missouri’s 15.

Georgia returns home to play Auburn on Saturday, October 8th. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. You can listen to Georgia football on WGAC. Our game day coverage will begin at 11:30 a.m.
