How can Georgia beat LSU on Saturday? Well, the formula would start with a heavy dose of plays like this.

Georgia football: The Bulldogs beat LSU for the SEC championship because …..

DawgNation has four staffers who cover Georgia football from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The “Cover 4” concept is: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement on that opinion. 4) Pepper the page with photos for the big picture. For this edition, we discuss a smattering of opinions on how the Bulldogs can beat LSU on Saturday. 

DawgNation continues with the “Cover 4” concept. The focus is always a timely look with each of our guys manning the secondary on a pertinent topic.

The quick in-and-out game remains. It is designed to come out quicker than former Bulldog Nick Chubb scored his third touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens earlier this year.

The latest “Cover 4” question is of the fill-in-the-blank variety:

Georgia will beat LSU on Saturday because …

Brandon Adams: The UGA defense limits Joe Burrow’s success

The “why” from “DawgNation Daily” here: “It’s fair to say UGA coach Kirby Smart lives for these moments — a chance to scheme up elite talent into a winning game plan against a potent offense. The Bulldogs have only given up seven passing plays of thirty or more yards this season. They’re built for this moment.”

Mike Griffith: Georgia has the best secondary LSU has faced.

The “why” from “On the Beat” here: “The Bulldogs are three deep in premium cornerbacks and have arguably the best safety duo in the country. Good pass coverage could lead to Joe Burrow holding the ball and taking ill-advised hits..

Connor Riley: Jake Fromm plays well

The “why” from “Good Day UGA” here: “Fromm was outstanding against Florida earlier this year. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen that guy since. Fromm played well in this game a year ago under similar circumstances, and if he can replicate his 3-touchdown, 300-yard performance, Georgia is going to have a great shot at winning.

Jeff Sentell: The total defensive effort backs up every lofty national ranking.

The Intel here: “The flavor of the week is there will be some offensive X-factor plus breakout “more” formula which leads to victory. Don’t see that. What I see is Georgia doing what it has all season. It holds an offense averaging 47 points in SEC play to 24-27 points south of that total.  LSU should score twice as many points as what Georgia usually allows (10.4 ppg) this year. The Bulldogs can’t let them triple it. If the Tigers reach 30 points, all other victory scenarios will be moot.”
