The Georgia Bulldogs football program represents the University of Georgia in the sport of American football. The Bulldogs compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). They play their home games at historic Sanford Stadium on the university’s Athens, Georgia, campus. Georgia’s inaugural season was in 1892. UGA claims two consensus national championships (1942 and 1980); the AP and Coaches Polls have each voted the Bulldogs the national champion once (1980); Georgia has also been named the National Champion by at least one polling authority in three other seasons (1927, 1946 and 1968). The Bulldogs have won 15 conference championships, including 13 SEC championships (tied for second-most all-time), and have appeared in 55 bowl games, tied for second-most all-time. The program has also produced two Heisman Trophy winners, four number-one National Football League (NFL) draft picks, and many winners of other national awards. The team is known for its storied history, unique traditions, and rabid fan base, known as the “Bulldog Nation”. Georgia has won over 800 games in their history, placing them 11th all-time in wins.
How Georgia, LSU stack up ahead of SECCG: Statistical breakdown
The big one is here.
On Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on CBS, Georgia and LSU will square off in the SEC Championship Game in what will be a College Football Playoff play-in game for Georgia.
Flor LSU, the Tigers can probably afford to drop this one given their undefeated record and body of work to date.
But for the Dawgs, this is it. It’s win or go home. We suffered defeat in the exact same scenario last season and Kirby Smart will pull out all the tricks to make sure that does not happen.
Georgia and LSU are two very different football teams.
LSU’s offense is incredible. Georgia’s, well, is not.
Georgia’s defense is equally as good as LSU’s offense. LSU’s defense is nothing special.
How this game plays out will be fun to watch. LSU will score points; less points than usual I would assume, though. Can Georgia hang in there and match them?
Here are how these two teams match up statistically.
