Welp, here goes nothing.

LSU starts their brutal five ranked teams in seven games stretch with a road trip to Athens, Georgia. Georgia is the ninth best passing team in the country, with a more than suitable 39th ranked running game. But their defense is leaky, and can be picked apart with LSU’s balanced attack.

The key is ultimately going to be turnovers. Both teams should end up scoring plenty of points, which would likely lead to the team with the most possessions wins. This ended up being Georgia’s downfall against Clemson as they turned it over one extra time and ended up losing by three points.

Protect the ball and LSU has an excellent shot at winning this game.
