Georgia is having its way with rival Georgia Tech on Saturday, but the Bulldogs could be in trouble against LSU next week in the SEC title game. A dumb decision by freshman wide receiver George Pickens isn't going to make it any easier.

Earlier this week, the team's leading wide receiver, Lawrence Cager, confirmed that he's going to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury he suffered at practice. Against Georgia Tech on Saturday, star running back D'Andre Swift suffered a shoulder injury. And now, the aforementioned Pickens may have taken himself out of a portion of next week's game as well.

Pickens was ejected for fighting in the second half - meaning that by rule, he'll be suspended for the first half of his team's next game. The next game for Georgia is the SEC championship against LSU.

Here's footage - there's no doubt.

Pickens has 32 catches for 457 yards and five touchdowns on the season. Quarterback Jake Fromm is going to have a very limited set of weapons for his team's all-important game against the Tigers.

Pickens had one catch for 41 yards and a score against the Yellow Jackets before being ejected.

Georgia leads Georgia Tech 45-7 midway through the fourth quarter.
