Weather: It should be a warm day in Oxford, Mississippi, with the high temperature expected to reach 92 degrees. Rain is not expected as there's only a 20 percent chance of precipitation.
Georgia's season thus far: The Bulldogs (3-0) squeaked out a win at Missouri last week, which keeps them undefeated for the time being. Every game thus far has been decided by single-digits, with the biggest margin of victory being a 33-24 win over North Carolina in the season opener.
Mississippi's season thus far: The Rebels are the best 1-2 team in the nation, considering their losses have come to No. 13 Florida State and No. 1 Alabama. Ole Miss held leads in each game, too, but made too many mistakes in the second halves of both contests.
Georgia coaches: Head coach Kirby Smart, offensive coordinator Jim Chaney, defensive coordinator Mel Tucker.
Mississippi coaches: Head coach Hugh Freeze, co-offensive coordinator Matt Luke, co-offensive coordinator Dan Werner, defensive coordinator Dave Wommack, co-defensive coordinator Jason Jones.
Series history: Georgia leads Mississippi 32-12-1 all-time and has won the previous 10 meetings. This marks Georgia's longest winning streak over an SEC opponent, but isn't the longest conference winning streak in school history. Georgia also owns a 12-game winning streak over Ole Miss from 1977-88. Ole Miss hasn't beaten Georgia since 1996. Georgia holds a 10-5 record in Oxford.
Last meeting: Georgia last played Mississippi in 2012, with the Bulldogs winning 37-10 on Homecoming.
Georgia’s key offensive players: RB Nick Chubb, QB Jacob Eason, WR Isaiah McKenzie, RB Sony Michel
Georgia’s key defensive players: S Dominick Sanders, DL Trent Thompson, ILB Roquan Smith, OLB Lorenzo Carter
Mississippi's key offensive players: QB Chad Kelly, TE Evan Engram, WR Damore'ea Stringfellow, WR Van Jefferson
Mississippi's key defensive players: DE Marquis Haynes, OLB DeMarquis Gates, OLB Terry Caldwell, S Zedrick Woods
The key for Georgia: Georgia has to figure out how to run the ball, considering that teams have loaded the box with the offensive line unable to create lanes. The Bulldogs could opt for more shotgun runs since the traditional power method hasn't worked the past two games. On defense, Georgia has to figure out a way to cover long enough for the pass rush to affect Kelly. That's easier said than done.
The key for Mississippi: The Rebels will look to press the tempo offensively and put a ton of points on the board early. The key for Ole Miss, however, will be to sustain the same kind play for an entire game. Second half mistakes and miscues did the Rebels in against both Florida State and Alabama.
What a win means for Georgia: It would put Georgia in great position in the SEC East, for the time being, considering Florida and Tennessee play each other this week. It would also give the Bulldogs further confidence heading into next week's game against the Volunteers, too.
What a win means for Mississippi: Barring a miracle, the Rebels are out of the College Football Playoff race. But the only way to get back in it is to hope Alabama loses twice, while winning out, so that they can sneak in to the SEC Championship. Therefore, Ole Miss is in must-win territory from here on out if its SEC West title hopes are to remain alive.
