UGA 10    LSU 42   Final

The tale of two halves.

After totaling just 12 yards in the first half, LSU came out and dominated Georgia in the second half.

Mistakes from Georgia and a punt return from Tyrann Mathieu kept the Tigers in the game. Down 10-7 at the half, LSU exploded for 35 unanswered in the second half.

Two Hilliard touchdowns sandwiched a fantastic punt return from Tyrann Mathieu.

UGA was able to run the ball effectively early but stalled after that. A drop on the one-yard line and some missed passes cost them two touchdowns. Instead they had to settle for one field goal, and missed another.

LSU's win means they are the only undefeated team in the nation. They head to New Orleans for the National Championship. They figure to play Alabama, but anything can still happen.
