NCAA Football Game of the Week: Georgia Bulldogs vs. LSU Tigers

It's Championship Week in college football, and there are a ton of great matchups around the country. The biggest and best game of the week will take place in the SEC when a pair of top-five teams are set to do battle. The LSU Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs will meet up for the right to win the conference and clinch a spot in the College Football Playoffs.

Georgia comes into this game with a record of 11-1 and winners of the East Division. The Bulldogs have won six straight games since suffering their only loss. LSU is a perfect 12-0 this season, and were winners of the West Division. The Tigers have been outscoring teams by an average of 26 points per game this season.LSU is a -6.0 point favorite over Georgia in this game.

Burrow Putting on a Show For LSU

The LSU Tigers are averaging more than 48 points per game this season, and quarterback Joe Burrow is a big reason why. Burrow has thrown for over 4,300 yards  already this season, while completing a ridiculous 78 percent of his passes. The Tigers also have a ton of talented running backs at their disposal, but Burrow and the passing game will lead the team in this game.

Defense has been a staple for LSU over the last few seasons, but this unit has not been as dominant as it has been. The Tigers are allowing over 22 points per game, but they have also been out on the field a ton this season. Derek Stingley Jr. does have four interceptions, and Grant Delpit is one of the best safeties in the country. The Tigers will be able to get stops when they need to.

Georgia's Defense Will Have to be Great

If Georgia is going to win this game then they are going to have to be terrific on the defensive side of the ball. The Bulldogs are allowing just 10.4 points per game this season, and they have the pass rushers to give Burrow some problems in this game. Georgia has a trio of shutouts already this season, but holding LSU less than 30 would be a win in this game.

The Bulldogs will also need running back D'Andre Swift to run the ball well in this game if they are going to have a chance. Swift is averaging more than six yards per carry this season, but Georgia will just need him to keep drives alive and keep the offense on the field. Quarterback Jake Fromm does not have terrific numbers, but he knows how to show up in big games.

LSU Just Has Too Much Offense

Georgia is a worthy opponent in this matchup, and their defense will keep this game close. The problem is that offense will also be needed in this game, and that is where the Bulldogs fall short. LSU has been scoring points like crazy all season long, and Joe Burrow is going to lead his team to victory in this game.Bet the LSU Tigers -6.0 over the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game.
