Georgia will play confident and loose in front of a partisan crowd, and QB Aaron Murray will put the Bulldogs in scoring position. But LSU will allow just one touchdown and QB Jordan Jefferson and the Tigers running game will enable them to put the game away in the fourth quarter.
LSU 26, GEORGIA 16
LSU has ripped right through the toughest schedule in school history, reaching its 12 wins by an average of 27.6 points. Georgia is a hot team that has built confidence in winning 10 straight, but the Bulldogs have not beaten anyone ranked in the top 25 this week.
Georgia gave up 243 rushing yards to Georgia Tech last time out. LSU’s plethora of talented running backs will help the Tigers keep their string of blowouts intact.

Both teams are on a roll, but LSU has rolled over tougher opposition — like the Bulldogs. Georgia has won with a strong passing game, setting up with the run, and a rugged defense. But as against Alabama, the Tigers have more playmakers. They’ll help LSU put distance between itself and Georgia in the second half.
