LSU Week: Kendall's Three Keys

Posted Dec 2, 2005

Josh Kendall breaks down the three keys to Georgia's game with LSU.

Don’t turn the ball over

The one thing Georgia has done much better this year than LSU is win the turnover battle. The Bulldogs are plus-12, and the Tigers are minus-8. Georgia can’t afford for that trend to change. LSU has proven it can play sloppy and win, turning the ball over five times and still winning 21-17.

Tackle, tackle, tackle

Georgia has had only a handful of tackling lapses this season, but the same thing could have been said two years ago. Going into that game, Georgia’s defense was considered its strength, but sloppy play led to 201 yards rushing by Justin Vincent. The Bulldogs need to understand that LSU’s back will be every bit as physical as Auburn’s Kenny Irons, who gained 179 yards against the Bulldogs.

Catch passes

For the most part, Georgia has overcome its wide receivers’ sloppiness this season, but the Bulldogs can’t afford to give away any chances at momentum against LSU. If they do, they risk being blown out. On the other hand, if they make some plays and get the no-huddle offense rolling, they can pile up points on anybody.
