On Saturday, the 9th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs host the No. 6 LSU Tigers. The game will be televised by CBS at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Georgia enters the game 2-1 and 1-0 in the SEC after beating North Texas 45-21 last week. After the win, the Dawgs remained at No. 9 in the AP Poll and No. 10 in the Coaches Poll.
LSU (4-0, 1-0) beat Auburn 35-21 last week to remain undefeated. The Tigers are now ranked sixth in both polls.
After playing LSU, Georgia will become just the fourth team in the BCS era to play three Top 10 teams in their first four games. If Georgia comes out on top, it will be the first time the Bulldogs have ever beaten two Top 10 teams at Sanford Stadium in the same season.
To do that, the Bulldogs will have to contain former UGA quarterback Zach Mettenberger and LSU’s trio of backs, led by Jeremy Hill.
The atmosphere in Athens should be electric with two Top 10 teams on the field, ESPN College GameDay in town, and (most) everyone wearing red after Mark Richt called for a “Red Out”, perhaps to quell the rumors of a possible Blackout.
