Georgia and Missouri spent most of the first quarter feeling each other out with both defensive squads flexing their muscles to start. Missouri began the game with a couple of high snaps from their center one of which went over the head of Franklin and forced the first punt of the day for the Tigers.
After taking over inside Missouri territory, the Bulldogs went backwards when freshman Todd Gurley fumbled a pitch from Murray but recovered. The star of the first quarter could very well have been Missouri punter Trey Barrow who has two kicks of over 60 yards.
Both teams are pretty much dead even in total yards after one quarter but Missouri was on the move as the quarter ended.
