    Game of the Week

    Georgia (1-3) vs Iowa (2-1)


    Georgia: Georgia has had a tough go so far in this early season with losses to Hova's Michigan, Cnic's Oregon, and Arkansas. While these losses were hard to swallow for the Georgia fanbase, they still hold on to hope as their coach, who has been absent for this first part of the season, returns. In previous Legacy years, Bravejaf was a solid contender each year and gave many users a ton of trouble. So while their losses may have knocked them out of contention for a national title, there is still a ton of pride in the Georgia fan base and especially Coach Bravejaf.​

    Iowa: Iowa has had a great start to their early season, only losing to a very highly ranked Alabama team by 7 points. However, the other opponents Iowa has played have been cupcakes for sure, destroying both Air Force and Iowa State.​

    Both teams will be playing at a high level due to both teams playing a tough opponent or two, but Georgia may be the more prepared team.​

    Key Players/Stats

    The main storyline here will be Georgia #3 ranked passing offense going against a stout Iowa defense who ranks 4th in both Rush and Total Defense and 11th in pass defense.​

    Georgia: Georgia will be relying on their immensely talented QB A.Murray who has already almost reached 1000 yards passing and mostly to WR T. King who has 15 receptions for 298 yards and 2 TDs. This team has a lot of offensive talent that hasn't been showcased just yet due to poor performance in the first few weeks. They will be tough to contain.​

    Iowa: Iowa will be relying a lot on it's top-notch defense to stop the explosive Georgia offense throughout this match-up. However, Iowa has some offensive talent in their RB M. Coker. In his last game he took 19 carries for 138 yards and a TD (and a receiving one as well). Iowa's passing game doesn't look to be as dominant as Georgia's and will most likely attempt to keep their ground game going as much as possible.​


    While the match-up doesn't look too appetizing on paper (due to both team's average starts), this game should incredibly close. While Georgia have immense talent on the offensive side of the ball, they may have lost momentum with their three losses in a row and the absence of a coach who may not be as prepared as Iowa's coach. However, Iowa showed a lot of grit in their loss to Alabama and could keep Georgia's offense from achieving anything and slowly run the game away.​

    This one will be incredibly close but I am going to go with the upset. Georgia will pull out it's first big win of the season with Bravejaf back at the helm. Georgia wins 24-21.

    There will be a follow-up update about each team's future after this game has been played.
