It doesn’t get much bigger than this.
The Tigers (5-1, 2-1) are hoping to bounce back after last Saturday’s loss to Florida. With Georgia, Mississippi State and Alabama on the horizon, Saturday is a crucial game for the future of this season and possibly the program as a whole.
LSU is expecting one of its largest game day crowds ever. This is the type of game where Tiger Stadium needs to play a role in victory.
The Tigers should be the healthiest they’ve been all year. In fact, on Wednesday morning, Ed Orgeron said on the SEC Coaches Teleconference that linebacker Jacob Phillips will be “full speed” against Georgia. Phillips sat out with an injury last Saturday and is a key defender alongside Devin White.
On the offense, NC State transfer Thad Moss is making his LSU debut, too. On Wednesday, Ed Orgeron also mentioned that the tight end is “ready” to play on Saturday. Moss hasn’t played yet this season due to injury.
Well, it’s another Saturday in the Southeastern Conference.
“It’s going to be another chest match,” said Orgeron on Monday … and, well, he’s right. Buckle up for another crazy ride in Tiger Stadium.
LSU and Georgia are set to kick at 2:39 p.m. CT on CBS.
