Odds: UGA -7

The Georgia Bulldogs are headed to Tiger Stadium to fulfill a big task at hand. And that is to keep their season flawless by staying undefeated. In order to do so, they will have to give the LSU Tigers their second consecutive loss. Who will prevail? This game is expected to be one the most exciting games of the season.

After a tough loss against the Florida Gators last week, quarterback Joe Burrow has to bounce back. And this game presents the best opportunity for him to show he can be that leader to help the Tigers win even the biggest of games as he did against the Auburn Tigers and Ole Miss Rebels.

The LSU running backs haven’t rushed over 100 yards against an SEC team, yet. Could this be the day that Nick Brossette and Clyde Edwards-Helaire get their chance to make it to the century mark?

Both teams are close in numbers, offensively. However, the Bulldogs average approximately 42 points a game, which is 11 points better than what LSU averages.

Both defenses allow less than 20 points per game. So this very well could be a repeat of the LSU/Auburn game where it comes down to the final seconds.

The Bulldogs defense is the better team on paper, as they’ve kept their opponents under 200 yards in both rushing and passing. The Tigers defense has to keep Jake Fromm in check, as he has completed roughly 72 percent of his passes with only two interceptions this season. They have to keep him from passing over 200 yards. Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda has a big task ahead of him, which he’s not afraid to face head on.

Is this the game the Tigers will level up and show how good really they are or the Bulldogs have them running back to their cages?

Prediction: Georgia 27, LSU 24
