Georgia's Thomas Flowers vs. LSU's Skyler Green
A redshirt sophomore from Pebblebrook High School, Flowers is second in the SEC in punt returns, averaging 14 yards on 29 returns. After a costly fumble against Auburn, he bounced back to key Georgia's late victory over Georgia Tech with a pair of big second-half returns. He also returned a kick 54 yards for a touchdowns against Tennessee earlier this season. "I wouldn't kick it to me," Flowers said.
A senior from Westwego, La., Green will always hold a bitter place in the heart of Georgia fans. He caught the winning touchdown pass for the Tigers when they beat Georgia Baton Rouge in 2003. This season, he is doing most of his damage returning kicks. He is third in the conference, averaging 13.6 yards on 23 returns. Don't expect Georgia to kick away from him either. "Directional punting is not really cheating, but it's kind of like cheating," Bulldog punter Gordon Ely-Kelso said. "You have to give the guy a chance. I'd rather see how high and how far I can kick it."
