Live from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, we have the Georgia Bulldogs and LSU Tigers squaring off in the SEC Championship game.
The Bulldogs are the best team in the country, and the Tigers are now 9-3 but did beat Alabama this year.
Can the Tigers now upset the Bulldogs? Let’s explore.
The Tigers were a potential backdoor entry into the College Football Playoff, but they fell flat in Week 13, losing to Texas A&M 38-23. This deflated any upside for the Tigers to cover in this game.
On the ground, LSU surrendered 215 yards and two scores to Texas A&M running back Devon Achane.
Tigers quarterback Jayden Daniels has played relatively well this season, completing 68.4% of his passes and running for over 1,000 yards.
However, in a big game, this Georgia defense will be out for blood to assert dominance ahead of College Football Playoff.
There’s not a single matchup that favors LSU here, comparing offense to defense. They’ll have to deal with Jalen Carter on the defensive line and potential first-round cornerback Kelee Ringo against Kayshon Boutte.
Georgia has two capable running backs, Kenny McIntosh and Daijun Edwards. Each player has over 600 rushing yards, five yards per carry, and 15 combined touchdowns.
There’s too much for Daniels to overcome here—he can’t do it alone.

This Georgia offense is equipped with a phenomenal tight end duo for which the Tigers seemingly have no answers—Brock Bowers is just too good.
On top of that, the Tigers' run defense is trending down, and they face a two-headed backfield with talented players.
For LSU, there are no many routes to scoring, but we have to give Daniels some credit. He has just two interceptions this year to 15 touchdown passes, and his mobility should help move the ball.
Look for LSU to score some points late for the backdoor over.
The Bulldogs win here 37-17.
