Georgia routed Georgia Tech 52-7, its most points scored since beating Tennessee 43-14 on Oct. 5. Against LSU in the SEC Championship, though, the stakes and the competition are much, much higher.

In weeks leading up to the Georgia Tech game and the SEC Championship, the team has mentioned that its offense, which has been a little sluggish at times, is on the verge of finding a higher level. That showed up on Saturday in the form of a 45-point win and 500 yards of total offense. Then again, the Yellow Jackets entered with one of the worst defenses in the country.

Can the Dawgs offense reach new heights against a much better Tigers defense while facing underdog status according to Vegas? Jake Fromm thinks so, based on the way things have looked in practice not just this week but throughout the season against the defense.

“Our defense is one of the best, I believe the best in the nation. They probably won’t like this, but we kind of give it to them sometimes,” Fromm said, according to Dawg Nation.

Still, Georgia has a few things working against it. Wide receiver Lawrence Cager is out for the remainder of the season, while George Pickens is suspended for the 1st half due to his fight with a Tech player in the last game. D’Andre Swift exited after sustaining an injury to his shoulder and has practiced but is “banged up”, according to Kirby Smart.

Still, Fromm is hopeful for a positive result on Saturday.

“I think it’s just a matter of us showing up and just doing it on Saturday and doing it repetitively and going out and straining for all four quarters,” he said.
