The season ended with a massive beating in the SEC championship game in Atlanta as LSU smacked around Georgia. Joe Burrow put the period at the end of his Heisman Statement at this game after he threw for four more touchdowns in a lop sided 37-10 victory. The other national implication coming from this game is seeding for the College Football Playoff for the National Championship, with LSU having been moved down to second (in a bizarre move to many) earlier in the season, the committee did wind up picking LSU to be the #1 seed after conference championship weekend.
PLAYERS FROM THE GAME
Jake Fromm, Quarterback of Georgia, wasn't ready for the big time and played inconsistently in a game that Georgia can never seemingly win, the SEC championship game, with two interceptions and only one passing touchdown.
Joe Burrow, Quarterback of LSU, this was a great game on a great stage and this is the most proof so far that there is no doubt that Burrow is a big time quarterback deserving of all the national love and accolades this season.
D'Andre Swift, Runningback of Georgia, he'd been the other big name coming into this game and because of injuries from the Georgia Tech game was really unable to get going.
So now for LSU the stage is set, December 28th in Atlanta again, they'll play in the Peach Bowl against Oklahoma and the winner goes on to the National Championship to play the winner of Clemson/Ohio State. The likelihood of LSU making it is good but now the question becomes, who do they play? Is there a match up they'd like to see more? My prediction is LSU against Clemson for a close LSU victory in the National Title game.
