Video: What No. 2 LSU Players Had to Say About SEC Championship Game vs No. 4 Georgia
The common theme displayed by LSU players during Monday's interviews is simple. Nobody from the starting quarterback to the equipment managers wants a season full of overwhelming accomplishments and success to be wasted in what is now the most crucial game of the year.
There's a lot at stake Saturday for the Tigers. A win over No. 4 Georgia would make the committee have to seriously consider which team is deserving of the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff. A loss, while not ideal, would still probably see LSU as the four seed. It would make for an uncomfortable few days in Baton Rouge and leave a sour taste after putting all that work in just to come up second in the SEC.
All LSU can control is how it performs this week against a Georgia team that is very talented on defense and competent on offense. Here's what the Tiger players had to say about this week's matchup with the Bulldogs in the SEC Championship.
