Georgia Football Schedule What To Know: Who do the Bulldogs miss from the SEC slate?

The two-time defending national champs don’t have to deal with Alabama, LSU, or Texas A&M. Those are all possible contenders to challenge for the SEC title. Even for a team as strong as this, not playing those three helps.
