Georgia ready for high-powered Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Georgia's defense has been so good this season it has some opposing quarterbacks in awe.

Wisconsin-Iowa could decide Big Ten West

The first Big Ten game of the season for No. 18 Wisconsin and Iowa could end up being the biggest one in the West division this season.

The Badgers (2-1), despite getting upset by BYU last weekend, still look like the class of the struggling West. But Iowa (3-0) and its dominant defense look like Wisconsin's most dangerous threat - and Saturday's game at Iowa City could go a long way in determining who reaches the Big Ten title game.
