The Tigers survived two top-10 matchups in the first three weeks. But they ultimately stumbled in their next tough test away from home, as Florida delivered the team its first loss in a 27-19 battle in The Swamp.
The good news, according to Best of 225 This Week: All of LSU’s goals are still on the table.
LSU’s gauntlet of a schedule ramps right back up this weekend, as No. 2 Georgia travels to Baton Rouge for an SEC cross-division matchup with huge implications. Ed Orgeron hasn’t lost two consecutive games in his tenure with LSU, but this weekend will prove to be his toughest test yet.
The Bulldogs enter the contest undefeated and coming off a National Championship appearance a year ago. Georgia is anchored by its passing attack from sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm and a defense that has put up strong numbers this year.
It’s a tall task for the Tigers but not an outlandish one. In this week’s Tiger Pride podcast from 225, co-hosts Mark Clements and Jerit Roser break down the Florida loss and tell you why LSU might match up well with Georgia this weekend.
