Georgia has already played a couple of top-10 teams leading up to this one, with a very tough start to the season. The Bulldogs are 2-1, and still in the hunt for the SEC and the national championship. But a loss to LSU would put Georgia out of the mix of the BCS Championship game.
If LSU were to lose, it would hinder their chances, but not eliminate them entirely. The Tigers still have games against Alabama and Texas A&M on the schedule and plenty of time to make up ground if they were to be defeated.
LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been a big storyline for the Tigers this season, so far playing much better than a year ago. Last season he was thought of as the reason why LSU might not have won the SEC West. This season, he could very well be the reason that they do. Under Cam Cameron, the offense has really opened up and head coach Les Miles has allowed Mettenberger to stretch the field.
Against a young Georgia defense, it could spell trouble for the home team in this one.
But on the flip side, the Bulldogs offense is nothing short of spectacular. Led by quarterback Aaron Murray and running back Todd Gurley, Georgia leads the SEC in total offense. Gurley might be the best running back in the country and that LSU defense will have a very difficult time trying to stop him.
This has the makings to be a great game, making up for the lousy schedule last week in college football.
