PHOTOS: Walkthrough day for Georgia-LSU at the SEC championship

ATLANTA — Georgia and LSU both had their walk-through session as Mercedes Benz-Stadium on Friday. The programs offered two different examples of what the experience means to them.

Unbeaten LSU had a lot of cell phones out soaking up the moment as they walked onto the turf on Saturday.

Georgia did not. That’s indicative of the Bulldogs now making their fourth appearance in that venue since December of 2017. Kirby Smart and his Bulldogs will compete on Saturday afternoon in their third straight SEC championship game.

That’s a feat that has only been matched by Alabama and Florida in conference play. Alabama matched that feat earlier this decade. The Gators (1992-1996) and the Crimson Tide (1992-1994) also both did that during the first decade of the game.

LSU Heisman Trophy candidate Joe Burrow and his splendid tailback Clyde Edwards-Helaire both took a seat for almost all of the 15-minute media viewing period for their Friday walkthrough. Smart did the same while his team first hit the turf on Friday afternoon.

There were a couple of moments in the LSU session which entertained. The first was an impromptu volleyball match among the LSU offensive line.

The champions of the SEC West also tossed up passes among their receiver group, too.
