Georgia Vs. Mississippi State Final Score: Dawgs Pull Another Upset, 70-68

In a game that went into overtime, the Georgia Bulldogs are proving to be worthy of "the upset special" as Mark Fox's basketball team took their talents to Starkville, Mississippi and pulled out a 70-68 win over the No. 18 ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's 20 points and 8 rebounds were huge for Georgia, as Caldwell-Pope's 6 three-pointers helped keep them in the game. Mississippi State's Dee Bost had 21 points and Jalen Steele also contributed 15 points off the bench, but poor shot selection late in the game cost Mississippi State as this was a game that frankly a No. 18 team should win.

Georgia can not only claim bragging rights in the "Battle of the Bulldogs" but they are now back to being a .500 team, as a young team like Mark Fox has is starting to figure out ways to win games.
