The wait will last another six days for Georgia, which still doesn't know whether or not will play in the SEC championship.
Missouri, the team that stands in the way, won a second straight road game on Saturday night, winning at Tennessee. Now the Tigers (9-2 overall) return home for their final regular-season game, against resurgent Arkansas (6-5, and on a two-game winning streak.)
That game is on Friday at 3:30 p.m., and will be aired on CBS.
So Georgia (10-2) will at least know its fate when it kicks off against Georgia Tech on Saturday at noon.

The Bulldogs (6-2 in the SEC) own the tiebreaker over the Tigers (6-1) by virtue of a 34-0 win at Missouri on Oct. 11. But the Bulldogs would have already clinched the division by now had they beaten either South Carolina or Florida, both of which just became bowl-eligible on Saturday with their sixth wins.
