Georgia is just days away from its biggest game of the season: a matchup with LSU in Atlanta, the SEC title and a College Football Playoff berth on the line.
Bulldogs fans probably don’t need any extra motivation for this game, but if they do, they can check out a new hype video courtesy of UGA fan Mitchell Smeak. It has been making the rounds on social media.
A shade over two minutes long, Smeak’s video begins with a highlight of Rodrigo Blankenship’s missed field goal on the final play of a 20-17 loss to South Carolina, Georgia’s only defeat. It also features clips of various pundits questioning the Bulldogs and picking against them.
Here’s the full video.

It looks like former Georgia and NFL offensive lineman George Foster saw Smeak’s work and is sufficiently excited for Saturday.

Georgia won its third-straight SEC East title this season, the loss to South Carolina the only blemish on an 11-1 record. The Bulldogs won the conference title game in 2017 but fell to Alabama last year.
With a win over LSU on Saturday, Georgia will clinch its second-ever College Football Playoff berth. The Tigers should be in the four-team field, win or lose.
Kickoff for the SEC Championship game is set for 4 p.m. ET Saturday on CBS.
