Appalachian State vs 15 Georgia

When: Saturday, September 2

Time: 6:15 pm et

Television: ESPN

Location: Sanford Stadium (Athens, GA)

Line: Georgia -14.5

After watching Appalachian State upset Michigan in 2007, no team will ever take the Mountaineers lightly again.

Especially the Georgia Bulldogs.

Georgia is expected to win the SEC East this year, just the Tennessee Vols were expected to win the East last year.

And just like the Vols did last year, Georgia opens the season against App State.

A year ago, we should’ve known after the Volunteers’ lackluster performance against App State that they probably weren’t going to win the East. We could learn a lot about Georgia, and where they are as a team, in their opener against the Mountaineers.

Prediction: Georgia 28 Appalachian State 17
