Where does LSU have an edge on Georgia today?

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

Jeff Sentell

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 question: Where 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.

The why from AdamsYou have to know where they are on every snap, and UGA needs to hope a couple of its own defensive stars can make as big an impact.

Why: LSU will be at home and it can’t take another SEC loss after last week in Florida plus the home team will have played in a few close games (Auburn, Florida, Miami) against an opponent with a comparable talent level.
