ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Tavarres King scoffs at the idea Georgia players could have difficulty playing with the same intensity in Saturday's game against Mississippi that they showed in last week's upset of then-No. 3 Florida.
The 17-9 win over the Gators gave No. 7 Georgia control of the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division. To earn a repeat trip to the SEC championship game, quarterback Aaron Murray and the Bulldogs (7-1, 5-1 SEC) must beat Ole Miss (5-3, 2-2) and then win at Auburn next week.
King, the senior receiver, says Georgia's control of its fate in the SEC East is a precious prize and ample incentive against the Rebels.
Ole Miss will be playing to extend a two-game winning streak and to qualify for a bowl bid in coach Hugh Freeze's first season.
