Georgia-LSU Prediction

The LSU Tigers haven’t played Kentucky. They haven’t played Tennessee. They haven’t played Auburn. We don’t really know how good they are. However, we do know that they have consistently taken care of business in the SEC. They haven’t yet lost a conference game and look like a team – and program – on the rise. If this home game on Wednesday night occurred against a member of the SEC’s elite, LSU might merit a measure of doubt. However, LSU is cleaning up against inferior SEC teams, doing the responsible things Alabama has failed to do. LSU hasn’t yet given people reason to distrust it in games such as this one against Georgia. Everything we have seen over the past two weeks indicates that the Tigers will put together a coherent and connected performance, once again winning a game they are supposed to win. LSU 81, Georgia 68. (Matt Zemek)

Game time: 7 ET, 6 CT, on SEC Network
