LSU-Georgia Prediction

This is probably the most interesting series for the upcoming weekend. The old guard LSU Tigers, who don’t seem quite as strong as usual, taking on the emerging Georgia Bulldogs in Athens. This one is hard to figure. Both teams are 3-0 in the SEC and the winner of the series will be off to a great start. Prediction: Toss up.
