A win over Mississippi State and they can consider themselves back in the SEC East race. Maybe they look ahead to the rivalry game with Tennessee the week after CU? But maybe they carry momentum into Folsom after a night win in a noisier stadium? A loss versus Mississippi State and at least 1 of UGA's preseason goals (conference title) is ended. Richt would be firmly on the hot seat. Maybe they bust out with a good performance if their backs are against the wall? But maybe the team comes apart instead of rallying together?
