Georgia had a rough start in the first half against Missouri, and the Bulldogs didn’t get on the board until 6:36 remaining in the first half, with a 40-yard field goal by Jack Podlesny.

That came after a 7-play drive sputtered after 52 yards on a third down incompletion by Stetson Bennett. The previous possession ended with a fumble, and then Mizzou turned it into a field goal. To start the game, Georgia’s offense only had 49 yards on its first 4 drives. One of the issues entering the game was Georgia wide receivers Arian Smith and AD Mitchell both dealt with injuries.

Another problem in the first half was that Georgia’s star defensive lineman, Jalen Carter, suffered a leg injury and left the game.

The consensus among Georgia fans appeared to be that the defense saved the Bulldogs in the first half, and gave the offense a chance to bail out a win after halftime.

Mizzou led 16-6 at halftime.

Here’s a sampling of some of the first-half reaction:
