Challenges for Georgia

This is a big test for the Bulldogs, their biggest so far this season. Georgia has the horses to beat LSU but this one won’t be easy. LSU teams are always athletic and aggressive. This Tiger team is no different. Add in the fact that this game is being played in Death Valley. Georgia had better be ready for a bayou brawl.

Challenges for LSU

LSU must be able to get pressure on UGA QB Jake Fromm who leads the SEC in completion rate at nearly 73%. If they don’t it’s going to be a long day at the office.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 2:30 pm CT (3:30 ET) and can be seen on CBS.
