Les Miles and No. 6 LSU come to Athens having won the last two against No. 9 Georgia, including an SEC Championship Game rout in 2011. Pundits are predicting an uncomfortably close game, with the home team a slight favorite.
The big story of the week, of course, is the return of LSU QB Zack Mettenberger to Athens. Mettenberger, a former Dawg, was in a starting quarterback battle with Aaron Murray (and the oft-forgotten Logan Gray) back in spring 2010, before an out-of-town incident at a bar got him kicked off the team. Interestingly enough, Mettenberger's mother is a UGA football employee (though Mark Richt reportedly gave her the week off.)
Both teams look good as far as injuries go. Star running back Todd Gurley should be at 100 percent and ready to put up big numbers against a solid-but-exploitable LSU defense. It's Georgia's third top-10 matchup of the season so far; the Dawgs are 1–1 in those games and looking to improve.
Follow all the action after the jump.
Steve Spurrier and South Carolina come into Athens today ranked sixth in the country and hoping to win their fourth straight against the Dawgs. Georgia looks to bounce back after a tough loss to Clemson last week, a game in which star running back Todd Gurley strained a quad muscle (and WR Malcolm Mitchell was lost for the season with a celebration-related injury). However, all signs point toward Gurley being available to play in today's matchup.
