Last season: 11-2
Last game vs. Georgia: 34-14 loss
Series Record: LSU leads 11-14-1
Most memorable Georgia win: 2005 – D.J. Shockley and the Bulldogs pound LSU relentlessly two win their second SEC crown in four seasons.
Most painful Georgia loss: 2003 – Georgia, the defending conference champs, are thrashed in the Georgia Dome at the hands of the eventual national champions.
Starters returning: 11

Best player: Early Doucet
Biggest Weakness: Replacing the #1 pick in the NFL Draft
2007’s big questions: Can this team win the national title?

Inside the numbers vs. Georgia (as seen in the 2007 Dawg Post Season Preview):
LSU finished in first place in five of the nine statistical categories the SEC keeps up during 2006 – total offense (417.5 yards), scoring offense (33.7 points), total defense (242.8 yards), passing defense (145.7 yards) and scoring defense (12.6 points). LSU finished in first or second in all but one other category.
