Georgia called a fake field goal deep in LSU territory in the first quarter on Saturday, and it surprised everyone except for the Tigers.
Instead of attempting a 31-yard field goal on fourth-and-9, the Bulldogs ran a fake, pitching the ball to kicker Rodrigo Blankenship. It didn’t go well.
At least one LSU fan said he thought Georgia actually made the right call.
His reasoning? The Georgia offense isn’t going to have much trouble moving the ball anyway, so it wouldn’t hurt too much if they didn’t get points on that particular possession.
We’ll see if this fan’s logic holds up. However, LSU made Georgia pay on the following drive, going 84 yards in 12 plays for a touchdown to take a 10-0 lead.
