LSU has stormed on to this season after the Joe Burrow transfer. The Tigers have one of the best offenses in the country and boast some of the top NFL prospects in their skill positions. Burrow has had himself a Heisman Trophy-worthy season, and he is the odds-on favorite to win the award.
Georgia was everybody’s darling in the preseason, and it comes into this game with only one loss on its resume. The Bulldogs are lockdown on defense and present a seasoned and experienced roster.
It’s the battle of the titans for the SEC Title, and we have all your coverage right here.
How Much Should We Read Into Georgia’s Loss?
Despite being the No. 4 team in the country, the Bulldogs have a screaming blemish on their resume.
In week six of the regular season, Georgia hosted a reeling South Carolina, which had its second-string quarterback knocked out of the game.
Georgia, in a surprising defeat, turned the ball over four times and lost in double overtime. Georgia nation was stunned, but the Bulldogs have climbed themselves out of that hole to compete for the SEC Championship.
The Bulldogs have a number of quality wins on their resume, including victories over Notre Dame, Florida, and Auburn. They have played one of the more difficult schedules in the country and, beyond that flub in week six, have performed in every game.
Jake Fromm and D’Andre Swift lead an experienced Georgia offense in this game. They are going to have to help their defense out by putting some points on the board, as I believe the LSU offense is too difficult to slow down.
LSU Ready To Finish Off Dream Season
The conference championship will cap off all of LSU’s accomplishments this season. Everything about the Tigers’ offense is scary.
Burrow is the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy, and a win in this game will seal the deal to lock in that vote.
He has two of the best NFL prospects at receiver in Jamarr Chase and Terrence Marshall. The two of them are as explosive as they come, and, coupled with Burrow’s elite playmaking ability, they pose a matchup nightmare for any team.
I still think the final piece to the puzzle is running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who has come on as one of LSU’s most important players, going back to its triumph over Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Edwards-Helaire can take the offense up to the next level and give Burrow even more passing lanes when he is shaking off defenders.
The beauty of LSU is how many different ways it can punch the ball in at the goal line. The Tigers’ offense is dangerous in all areas, and they will be ready to attack the Georgia defense early and often.
These are two of the best teams in the country, and the game on Saturday afternoon will likely come down to the wire.
LSU draws the favorite in this one, as it is favored by 7.5 points. The Tigers’ offense is far more scary than the Georgia defense, and that is likely why they are favored by more than a touchdown.
Georgia is going to have to control the clock and keep LSU’s offense off the field if it wants to have a shot. I don’t buy the Bulldogs, though, and I’m taking LSU to finish the season off undefeated.
