This weekend’s LSU-Georgia game is a top-15 SEC showdown that needs no outside hype.
But on Thursday, the Tigers’ official Twitter account rolled out a hype video anyway, complete with snippets of impassioned locker room speeches from coach Ed Orgeron and several players.

The SEC and national implications of this game are obvious. No. 13 LSU is coming off its first loss of the season at Florida, and No. 2 Georgia is one of only 11 undefeated squads left in the country.
The winner of this game will look like the top conference challenger for No. 1 Alabama, whether it’s the Tigers on Nov. 3 or the Bulldogs in the SEC championship game. Either way, the stakes for this cross-division showdown are about as high as they could be.
We’ll see how one of the biggest games of the year plays out when LSU (5-1, 2-1 SEC) clashes with Georgia (6-0, 4-0) at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
