The win solidifies LSU’s status as Alabama’s biggest challenger in the SEC West and gives life to Florida and Kentucky in their hopes to win the SEC East.

LSU had to settle for five short field goals from kicker Cole Tracy. Constantly having to kick short field goals is typically a recipe for a loss. But it’s not when your opponent can’t score. Georgia’s passing game was all out of sorts yet the Bulldogs kept trying to throw it for some reason. Maybe offensive coordinator Jim Chaney thought it would eventually start to work?

Running backs Elijah Holyfield and D’Andre Swift combined for 19 carries and 128 yards. Quarterback Jake Fromm was 14-of-31 passing and flustered throughout the day.

Need an example? Fromm’s ill-advised scramble effectively took Georgia out of the game early in the fourth quarter with the Tigers leading 19-9. On third down with six yards to go at the LSU 34, Fromm went towards the left sideline instead of cutting upfield for a few yards and a shot at a field goal. He was sacked for a loss of nine and Georgia was forced to punt.
