    Oct. 18 Georgia 45, at Arkansas 32 
    And You Care Because … Arkansas took a 6-0 lead on a one-yard Alex Collins run, but that would be the best thing that would happen to the Hogs all day. The extra point was blocked, and then it was all Georgia as Nick Chubb and the offense ran all over the Hogs on the way to a 38-6 first half lead. Chubb tore off runs from 43 and three yards for scores, and Hutson Mason ran for a score and found Michael Bennett for a seven-yard touchdown. But it was a 54-yard Dominick Sanders fumble return for a touchdown that really put the game away – and the Bulldogs would need the points. Arkansas kept on fighting, and while the game was well out of reach, Brandon Allen threw three touchdown passes and Alex Collins ran for a six-yard touchdown to pull within 13, but it was way too late. Mason’s 46-yard touchdown pass to Chris Conley in the fourth kept the Bulldogs comfortably ahead.

    And You Care Because … It was the Marcus Murphy show as the Mizzou running back returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, ran for a five-yard score, and returned a punt 83 yards for a touchdown as Missouri blew out to a 42-0 lead. The Missouri offense only generated 119 yards, but it didn’t need to do much thanks to a defense that forced six turnovers and for a 21-yard Markus Golden fumble return for a touchdown and a 46-yard interception return for a score from Darvin Ruise. In garbage time, Treon Harris threw a five-yard scoring pass to Tevin Westbrook and ran for a three-yard touchdown.
