Why Georgia can cover
The defending national champion Bulldogs posted a 37-14 victory against Georgia Tech last weekend, which gave them back-to-back undefeated regular seasons for the first time in school history. Georgia outgained the Yellow Jackets 264-40 on the ground, with Kenny McIntosh rushing for 86 yards and a touchdown. The senior also was a key contributor in the team's aerial attack as he gained 96 yards on two receptions.
McIntosh is the Bulldogs' biggest producer on the ground, leading the team in both rushing yards (654) and touchdown runs (eight). Junior Daijun Edwards gives the team a strong 1-2 combination as he has run for 604 yards and seven scores. Senior quarterback Stetson Bennett also has seven TDs for Georgia, which is tied for third in the nation with 35 rushing touchdowns.
Why LSU can cover
The Tigers lost their first game against a ranked team this season, falling 40-13 against then-No. 8 Tennessee, but have won their last two as they routed then-No. 7 Ole Miss 45-20 on Oct. 22 and edged then-No. 6 Alabama 32-21 in overtime two weeks later. Jayden Daniels recorded the first of his two 300-yard passing performances against the Volunteers and was a dual threat in the two victories. The junior quarterback threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns while running for 121 yards and three scores versus the Rebels before making two TD passes and rushing for 95 yards and the decisive touchdown against the Crimson Tide.
Daniels is the Tigers top rusher as he leads the team in both yardage (824) and TDs (11). His favorite target in the passing game is sophomore wide receiver Malik Nabers, who has hauled in 58 passes for 726 yards and a score. Senior Jaray Jenkins tops LSU with five touchdown receptions while sophomore Brian Thomas Jr. has made four.
