Chick-fil-A Bowl: LSU vs. Georgia Tech

After a disappointing 7-5 season, LSU has accepted a bid to the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. The bowl matchups were announced on Sunday, but Chick-fil-A bowl representatives made a trip to Baton Rouge yesterday to officially welcome the Tigers to play #14 Georgia Tech on Dec. 31.

LSU will have their hands full with Georgia Tech's rushing attack. Under Les Miles, the Tigers haven't lost a bowl game and an already agitated fan base would become unruly if LSU picks up their 5th loss of the season. LSU has a history of playing in the Atlanta game (formerly the Peach Bowl), where they recently defeated Miami in 2005.
