Eric Zeier Game Preview
ATLANTA Former SEC all-time passing leader and Georgia quarterback Eric Zeier will be looking closely for two telltale signs early in the league title game this afternoon.
The No. 4-ranked Bulldogs face No. 2-ranked LSU at 4 p.m. on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with a trip to the College Football Playoffs on the line.
The Georgia defense completed a rare grand slam during the regular season, leading the league in scoring defense, total defense, rushing defense and pass efficiency defense.
Zeier, the Georgia Bulldogs Radio Network analyst, said two keys for the Bulldogs are to be able to pressure Joe Burrow with bringing extra pressure, and preventing big plays on the perimeter.
"I think we've got a great game to go back and look at how to slow down this LSU offense somewhat," Zeier said on a GeorgiaDogs.com podcast this week. ""When you watch the Auburn-LSU game, Auburn did a fantastic job. Didn't bring a whole lot of pressure, just rushed with four guys a lot.
"We know they have a great defensive line, but I'd put our defensive line up against anybody. I think we will come out with a similar blueprint defensively."
