Where does Georgia have an edge on LSU today?

Cover 4 on UGA football: Where do the Bulldogs have the clear edge on LSU?

DawgNation has four staffers who cover the UGA football team from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The Cover 4 aim is simple: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement to support the informed opinion. 

Big game today. The Bulldogs have taken over Bourbon Street this week in New Orleans. Can they do the same in Death Valley?

The No. 2 team in the land surely can. But what sort of degree of difficulty will the Tigers bring to bear today? Can they bounce back from that tough Florida loss?

If the Tigers are able to pull out the home win today, how do they do it? We’ve got a few things to consider here regarding that topic.

This Cover 4 questionWhere does LSU have the edge on Georgia?

These takes are designed to come out even faster than Georgia and LSU fans can fire up those tailgates on Saturday morning.

Where does UGA football have the clear edge on LSU? 

Brandon Adams: LSU’s wide receivers

The why from AdamsJustin Jefferson’s been okay, but I had big expectations for this group, especially the three newcomers — freshmen Terrace Marshall and JaMarr Chase, and transfer Jonathan Giles. So far they haven’t put up spectacular numbers. That’s not likely to change against the Bulldogs secondary.

Chip Towers: Everywhere but Linebacker

The why from Towers TakeGeorgia is better in every phase except the second line of the defense. The venue is the only decided advantage for LSU.

Mike Griffith: Passing game and secondary

The why from On The BeatGeorgia’s quarterbacks are superior to LSUs, and the receivers are emerging. On defense, the Bulldogs might have the best secondary in the SEC.

WhyJake Fromm does so much for the Bulldogs guiding the offense and making the right decision before and after the snap and then there is the Justin Fields factor. Joe Burrow transferred in after being a career backup at Ohio State and won the job.
