Thus far, LSU has looked like the best team in the SEC. The Tigers defense, although not yet reloaded, seems better than the product that Alabama is currently offering. And offensively speaking, LSU trails only Texas A&M in points per game.
For Georgia to win, a near-perfect game is going to be required, and the Bulldogs have not been able to consistently display that type of discipline. The Bulldogs got close to that level of play in their win against South Carolina, but the Tigers present a more potent threat than the Gamecocks.
LSU will bring an offense that is scoring at a higher clip than Clemson to Athens, and the Tigers will bring a hungry defense.
Turnovers, penalties and special teams errors must be completely avoided by the Bulldogs, and the Dawgs will still need some help from the crowd. If Georgia plays mistake-free football and the Sanford Stadium crowd is able to affect Mettenberger and the LSU offense, the Bulldogs will have a chance.
Otherwise, LSU wins this game.
