The No. 6 ranked LSU Tigers face their biggest challenge tomorrow afternoon in Athens as they take on No. 9 Georgia. College Football analyst Mike Detillier says in order for LSU to win the game against the Bulldogs, scoring 35 or more points is a must.
"Both teams are going to be able to run the football on each others defensive line," Detillier said. "And the strong points up front are LSU's offensive line, Georgia's defensive line. They've got Todd Gurley, we've got Jeremy Hill."
Both LSU and Georgia are averaging 40 points or more a game. Detillier says The Bulldogs have outscored their opponents 62-3 in the first quarter.
He says The Bayou Bengals will have to get an early start on Georgia, "I'm looking for a real high scoring football game. And it's going to come down to one of those two Georgia Quarterbacks, either Zach Mettenberger or Aaron Murray to make a play. I think Zach's the guy to do it because he's got the better receivers."
Mettenberger will be back in his home state and playing against the football team he was dismissed from over a messy incident. Detillier says it's going to be an emotional game for the Tiger QB, but doubts it will affect his play.
"One thing I know about great players, they have the ability to compartmentalize certain situations..good and bad," says Detillier. "This is a big test for Zach but I think he'll handle it well."
The game will be televised on CBS and will kick off at 2:30.
