The Tigers are one of four undefeated teams in the conference and have scored at least 35 points in all four of their games so far. After a 37-27 defeat of TCU in their opener, the Tigers soundly beat UAB and Kent State before opening up conference play with a 35-21 win over Auburn.
Georgia opened the year with a 38-35 road loss to Clemson, but rebounded nicely with a 41-30 win over South Carolina. After games against two-straight top-10 opponents, the Bulldogs had an extra week to prepare for North Texas and ended up outlasting the feisty Mean Green in a game that was closer than expected (although the Georgia faithful think that might not mean much).
For the Bulldogs, it will be their third game out of their first four against an opponent ranked in the top 10 in the country. The schedule gets a bit easier for Mark Richt's squad from here, as just one ranked team (No. 20 Florida) remains on the schedule.
For LSU, it's the start of a blisteringly hard conference schedule that includes games against Florida, No. 21 Ole Miss, No. 1 Alabama and No. 10 Texas A&M over a stretch of five weeks.
Rankings and records: LSU is ranked sixth in both polls, while Georgia is ranked ninth in the AP Poll and tenth in the Coaches' Poll. The Tigers hold a 16-12-1 record in the all-time series and have won the last two contests between the two schools. Both teams are 1-0 in conference play.
Vegas: Georgia is a three-point favorite, and the over/under is 61.5 points. OddsShark has more.
Weather: A high of 76, partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain.
Three names to know
Aaron Murray. The senior quarterback has thrown for seven touchdowns against two interceptions, completing 72% of his throws for 12.7 yards per attempt against the Bulldogs' tough early slate.
Jeremy Hill. LSU's running back has been a breakout star of sorts, averaging over eight yards per carry and scoring six touchdowns on the year.
Zach Mettenberger. It'll be a battle between two of the most impressive quarterbacks in the country, as Mettenberger has thrown for 10 touchdowns on the year -- second in the conference only to Johnny Manziel.
Two things at stake
A win here would make the path to 11-1 likely for Georgia with seemingly only a home game against a hampered Florida between the Bulldogs and a SEC title game appearance.
In a West division with Alabama and Texas A&M, LSU cannot afford to slip up once if they hope to make the conference title game.
