The No. 6 LSU Tigers face their toughest challenge yet this Saturday when they travel to Georgia to test themselves against the Bulldogs, now ranked 9th in the country.
This top ten face off will be a good measuring stick for the Tigers to grade just how much their offense has actually improved.
Expectations are high, as this is the first time in LSU football history the Tigers have registered over 400 yards of total offense in each of the first 4 games of the season.
Quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who originally signed with Georgia but never played there, is coming into his own.
Coach Les Miles likes the senior's maturity.
"I think Zach is really doing what we ask of him and need not get impatient," Miles said. "At certain times, we're not going to throw the ball down the field, certain times the read is going to keep you underneath. We felt like he handled it and had poise during that stretch when we were looking at rain as an opponent as well."

It wasn't a good week for Jeff Driskel. He saw his season end with a broken fibula against Tennessee.....which he broke while throwing a Pick 6. That capped what has been a fairly awful start to the year. But the good news for the Gators is that they bounced back with replacement QB Tyler Murphy, and the Gators chomped Tennessee, who looked dreadful offensively AND defensively...

The answer to that is easy--because he...
