LSU at Georgia


The 4th ranked Tigers travel to Athens this weekend for their toughest test of the season when they meet the Georgia Bulldogs (#18 Coaches, #14 AP).

LSU hasn't beaten Georgia in Athens since 1987 and winning this weekend will be another big challenge for the Tigers. LSU fans are still looking for some consistency from their team, after an ugly showing at Mississippi State last year. Thanks to Chad Jones' punt return and great play on the 4th quarter goal line stand, LSU was able to leave victorious.

Many around the country think LSU is overrated at #4 and they're probably right. LSU hasn't played well this year, even in their "cupcake" game against ULL. If LSU can make a strong showing at Georgia, they'll go a long way to earn respect around the nation. This Georgia team is also showing some inconsistency, and LSU has a good chance to go between the hedges and get a victory. If LSU does lose, this could begin an ugly part of their schedule with them playing Florida, Auburn and Alabama in the next month.

LSU 33
Georgia 31
