Georgia continues preps for LSU

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, Ga. -

Georgia continued preparations for its gauntlet of an opening month Tuesday, four days before no. 6 LSU visits Athens.

The Bulldogs practiced for two-and-a-half hours in full pads.

"It's without question a huge game for us and a huge game for LSU," said head coach Mark Richt. "We have an awful lot of respect for LSU, even more respect after watching them on TV last Saturday night. They look as good as ever."

LSU knocked off Auburn, 35-21, last week in Baton Rouge.

This year, the Bayou Bengals boast a more potent air attack led by former Bulldog Zach Mettenberger, to compliment the always-dangerous run game.

"They do a good job in both the run and the pass," said Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. "They have some backs that can get downhill. They set up the play action pass off the run game, and when you can do both equally well it makes it difficult."

Saturday could feature some offensive fireworks. LSU and Georgia are the third- and fourth-best, respectively, scoring offenses in the SEC. The Tigers average 43.2 points a game, while Georgia puts up 40.3.

    Now that A-Day is over for the Auburn Tigers, we can look back what we have learned from Auburn this spring, and most of the lessons are centered around the passing game.

    How do you repeat a Cinderella season? That is what the Auburn Tigers will be trying to do in the 2014 season. It was their passing attack that shined in A-Day.
