As much as this game looks like it means on paper, the truth of the matter is that it really might not mean a thing whatsoever to LSU. The Bayou Bengals could very well have their eyes fixated on the National Championship Game, and they might be able to go to the game even with a loss. That being said, Head Coach Les Miles wants his team to continue playing its best football, and that means beating the snot out of the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs have absolutely nothing to lose in this game, as they already know that they have done enough to keep their Head Coach Mark Richt around for another season. That doesn’t mean that they are content getting blown away in this game and then taking a winter flight down to Orlando for the Capital One Bowl. They want to win the SEC, and they want to put the pressure on the BCS bowl games to make room for them as automatic qualifiers. And, it’s hard to deny them that right, too. QB Aaron Murray, only a sophomore, has thrown for 32 TDs this year to lead an offense that has been sneakily good. Meanwhile, the defense has picked it up after getting blown to bits over the course of the first two weeks of the season.

We aren’t denying the fact that Georgia has been great this year, because it has and is much deserving of a spot in this game. However, the Dawgs didn’t play Alabama, LSU, or Arkansas this year, and its hardest game of the season that was won was likely the roadie at Georgia Tech last week. LSU has beaten, and beaten down most everyone that it has played this year, and we just don’t see this one being much of an exception. It’s hard to see anything but a 20+ point victory for the Bayou Bengals.

Week 14 NCAA Football Pick: LSU -13.5
