Hard to imagine a #6 LSU team flying under the radar but think that has been the case thus far this season. The Tigers first year offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has given LSU offense much needed balance. QB Zac Mettenberg has really blossomed in his senior season and might lead the most dangerous LSU offense in all of Coach Miles teams. Georgia is way over rated and LSU defense will show why. Tigers defense will pound QB Murry for Georgia causing multiple turnovers as LSU wins going away. Final Score Prediction, LSU Tigers win outright 33-23.
