A look at each unit for Georgia and LSU and how it matches up against its counterpart. Plus a prediction on the game.
Georgia rush offense vs. LSU rush defense
The Tigers all-out blitzes do more than make life tough on quarterbacks. They make it tough to run the ball. LSU ranks third in the nation in rush defense (69.7 ypg) and Louisiana Tech and Arkansas are the only two teams to rush for more than 100 yards against the Tigers. LSU held six teams to 50 or fewer rushing yards in a game. The good news for the Bulldogs' backs, paced by true freshman Kregg Lumpkin, is if they can find a seam through the first wave, they will have lots of running room. Lumpkin could start his first game today as the most effective runner of the team's three backs. Regular starter Michael Cooper has been slowed by ankle and calf injuries all week. The elusive Tyson Browning also will get plenty of chances as the backfield's best screen receiver, scoring the only touchdown of the first meeting on a 93-yard screen pass. Edge: LSU
