LSU star quarterback Jayden Daniels is dealing with an ankle injury that caused him to miss some plays last week in the Tigers’ loss to Texas A&M.

While we expect him to play on Saturday, he will not be 100% and that is something to keep an eye on during the game.

Daniels is second in the nation in rush yards by a quarterback with 824 yards on the ground and 11 touchdowns. 

The Tigers offense stalled last week without Daniels unique threat with his legs.

I expect Georgia’s No. 1 defense to take advantage of this and force LSU to be one dimensional on offense.

Defensively, the Tigers looked lost against Texas A&M, allowing 274 yards rushing to the Aggies’ ground game.

UGA has showed prowess on the ground this season, averaging 203 yards per game.

Prediction: 34-7, Georgia wins, covers and earns an SEC title
