Prior to the start of the 2018 season, nobody expected Georgia's week seven matchup vs LSU to be such an important and meaningful game. He knows he has his work cut out for him, but LSU's loss to Florida provided Smart with plenty of useful game film. They are going to line up and try to maul you. "It's always physical when you play LSU". Georgia now is the only undefeated team in the SEC East and has their sights set directly on a SEC Championship Game appearance.

Fromm, who generally gives way to dual-threat quarterback Justin Fields for a few series during each game, leads a balanced offensive attack that averages 245.2 yards rushing and 240 yards passing per contest. That's followed by another true road game at No. 18 Kentucky (5-1, 3-1), before the Bulldogs finally return to Sanford Stadium to host No. 21 Auburn (4-2, 1-2). Next week the Tigers play Mississippi State, which re-entered the rankings at No. 24 after ending a two-game losing streak with an upset victory against then-No. They've got big fullbacks. "Obviously, we've got a tough stretch up ahead with a lot of good opponents, but our preparation's not going to change".

This will be the Bulldogs strongest test of the season as they have pretty much steam rolled through an early SEC schedule against the likes of Vanderbilt, Missouri, Tennessee, and SC.

"We've been tested", Nauta said.

This will be Georgia's first trip to Baton Rouge since 2008. The 6-foot-3, 274-pound resident of Thomaston has played in every game and has six tackle and one batted-down pass. He used the term "atmosphere" on a plethora of occasions as he experienced it both as a coach and player. "I've heard it's insane, and I'm ready for it".

Understandably, he was in no place to make new music during this time. "I'd much rather it'd have been me". That's why the singer, praised for his fusion of jazz and pop, chose to stop reading reviews.

"Georgia's got our attention, has everybody's attention all year, now it's time to focus in on them and it will be a tremendous challenge for us".

The Georgia Bulldogs will be hoping to stay undefeated when they visit the LSU Tigers at Tiger Stadium on Saturday afternoon. It's an opportunity for a lot of our guys to play in a venue that a lot of Georgia players never got a chance to play in and some in the future won't get an opportunity to play in. "So that part is good".

In some ways, it feels like a season opener for the Bulldogs.

"It wasn't great last week (against Tennessee) as far as throwing the ball, so it's good to kind of come back out and say, 'Hey, you know we can still do it, '" Fromm explained. "That's why you come to the SEC, to run the gauntlet of challenging teams". "That's what SEC football is all about".
