Lots of red in Atlanta, but LSU prepared all week for an away atmosphere.

LSU wins the toss and defers. It's gametime Tiger fans.

First Quarter

Touchback from Avery Atkins to kick this game off.

Georgia goes big on the first play and can't convert on a deep pass from Fromm. Should've been caught.

Damone Clark sacks Fromm on third down but grabs Fromm's face mask. First down Georgia. 

Fromm misses on a few throws down the field and the LSU defense gets off the field. Some breakdowns in the secondary on that first drive don't cost the Tigers.

Joe Burrow and the offense up next.

Nine-yard run from Clyde Edwards-Helaire on the first play from the LSU offense. 

Joe Burrow completes a pass to himself and turns it into a first down. Heisman frontrunner can do it all.

Burrow has a picnic in the box and points to Ja'Marr Chase to redirect his route. Touchdown Tigers as Burrow breaks the SEC record for touchdowns in a single season. 

Ja'Marr Chase also ties an SEC record with his 18th touchdown of the season.

Play is under review.

Scoring Update: LSU 7, Georgia 0

LSU defense starts the game with two stops on Jake Fromm and the Georgia offense. Perfect start for the Tigers on both ends.  Fromm misses another throw.

Looks like Edwards-Helaire's elbow might've caused the fumble. Huge call in this first quarter.

Ruling: His arm was down and LSU faces 3rd-and-16.

LSU plays it safe with a screen pass to Jefferson that goes for a short gain. Georgia fields the punt and will have good field position.

Fromm completes a 3rd-and-3 pass to Dominick Blaylock, but the Georgia receiver went down immediately, holding his knee. First down Gerogia.

K'Lavon Chaisson bats down a Fromm pass to force third-and-9 for the Bulldogs. Georgia can't convert on third down and LSU forces a field goal attempt.

Misses and Ed Orgeron is fired up on the sidelines as LSU still has held Georgia without a point.

Terrace Marshall hauls in 41-yard reception, one that he caught twice. LSU inside the 10-yard line

Marshall catches the touchdown two plays later, as LSU has gathered control of this game in the first quarter.

Scoring Update: LSU 14, Georgia 0

Wrote about Marshall as a player to watch this weekend. In the first quarter, 3 catches for 72 yards and a touchdown LSU leads 14-0.

End 1: LSU 14, Georgia 0

Second Quarter

Georgia is driving to start the second quarter as Fromm has started to find a rhythm. Bulldogs down to the LSU 24-yard line and Tyler Shelvin just went down on the last play.

A big tackle for a loss from Rashard Lawrence helps the LSU defense off the field. 39-yard field goal from Blackenship is good. Great bend, not break from the Tiger defense.

Scoring Update: LSU 14, Georgia 3

Joe Burrow dropped one in perfectly to Terrace Marshall who plain drops a touchdown pass. Second three-and-out of the day for the LSU offense.

LSU defense doing work on the Bulldog rushing attack. Just 26 yards on 13 carries for a team that averages over 200 yards on the ground per game.

There's Grant Delpit. Delayed blitz goes for a huge sack. Jake Fromm hurt on the play. 

Fromm limps to the sideline. Stetson Bennett is his backup and faces 3rd-and-17. Overthrows his receiver and LSU defense is off the field. Three punts in this first half for Georgia.

Big opportunity here for the Tiger offense to really put an early choke hold on this game. 

How did he do that? That was an incredible run from Burrow to dodge the sack and pick up a 13-yard gain.

Cade York drills a 41-yard field goal to go up two touchdowns. Freshman kicker has been outstanding since the Alabama game.
