Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans. Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 1,088 (Dec. 5, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about an underrated reason UGA could upset LSU in Saturday’s SEC championship game.

Georgia football podcast: An underrated reason why UGA could upset LSU

Beginning of the show: Much has been made of the anticipated matchup between LSU’s heralded offense and Georgia’s stingy defense, but ESPN’s Bill Connelly also pointed out this week that UGA also has the No. 1 special teams unit according to his SP+ rankings. I’ll discuss on today’s show why that could be a factor in the Bulldogs’ bid for an upset. I also discuss why UGA’s tight ends could be called upon more against the Tigers than some expect based on a stat given by Payne Insider on a recent podcast.

10-minute mark: I address whether LSU’s improved defensive play vs. Texas A&M was related to the challenge coach Ed Orgeron gave his team after a faulty performance against Ole Miss.

15-minute mark: CBS Sports’ Brad Nessler joins the show to preview the SEC championship game.

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Mike Bobo being out as Colorado State coach and possibly emerging as a candidate for South Carolina offensive coordinator, or in a role with UGA, and I address the chances LSU could be left out of the Playoff with a loss to the Bulldogs.

35-minute mark: Former SEC star Chuck Smith joins the show to explain why he thinks UGA will beat LSU.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
