For the third straight year, Georgia will play in the SEC Championship Game, as this time the prestigious program will try to defeat LSU.
Georgia faces a must-win scenario this Saturday if it wants to make the College Football Playoff. A loss to South Carolina at home is quite the blemish on its resume, but a win over LSU would erase that.
LSU has steamrolled past its competition this season, defeating Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Texas and Texas A&M. It’s fair to say the Tigers have the most impressive resume in college football.
The Tigers enter this weekend as seven-point favorites over the Bulldogs, which isn’t too surprising. Joe Burrow is having a season worthy of the Heisman Trophy and he does have plenty of weapons around him that could dominate any given game.
To make matters worse for Georgia, the offense is currently derailed by injuries. D’Andre Swift is going to play with a shoulder injury and Lawrence Cager is out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery.
Although the odds are stacked against the Bulldogs this weekend, the program is ready to embrace its role as the underdog.
Earlier this week, a Georgia fan made an epic hype video for the SEC Championship.

This should have fans in Athens ready to go for the conference championship.
Georgia will need its best performance of the year if it wants to defeat LSU. After all, there hasn’t been a team this year that has defeated the SEC West champion.
Kickoff for this game is at 4 p.m. ET from Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
