Auburn almost knocked off LSU. Georgia is a bit better than Auburn and they are playing close to home so they get the edge. LSU’s got an incredible offense but the Bulldogs should be able to slow down the Tigers enough to win. If Vandy, with one of the worst offenses in the FBS, could score 38 points on the Tigers, Georgia, with that top notch defense, should be able to score enough points to beat LSU. This one will be close though and a turnover or dumb penalty could sway the game to an LSU win. (Don Yates)
