Looking at the numbers: LSU vs. Georgia

I’m a sucker for numbers. Statistics don’t tell us the whole story, but you can see some underlying issues with teams based on numbers.

Let’s dive into some LSU-Georgia numbers through four weeks. Both teams are eerily similar, with Georgia having the upper hand in the passing game behind Aaron Murray. LSU is also giving up fewer points per game and fewer yards, but they haven’t faced Clemson or South Carolina like the Bulldogs have.
