LSU and Georgia baseball caught the nation’s eye last weekend as both steamed to league opening sweeps. The two power houses will collide in Athens this weekend, and the survivor will claim top-Dawg.

The LSU and Georgia baseball teams face off this weekend in what is easily the SEC’s marquee match up.

Although it’s just March, with both teams 3-0 in conference play, the Tigers ranked seventh nationally and the Dawgs ninth, it could be the match up of the season.

Both Georgia and LSU swept through the SEC’s opening weekend. Georgia took all three games from number twenty-two ranked South Carolina and LSU did the same to Kentucky. The Dawg-Cat match up is a classic Contender versus The Man.
