the Chick-Fil-A Bowl
Wednesday, December 31st, 7:30pm
A supremely disappointing year in Baton Rouge, while the Atlanta folks are thrilled with their new coach and his spread offense. LSU didn't beat anyone of note this year, while Georgia Tech has some solid wins on its resume - advantage Yellow Jackets. Against similar opponents, Tech rolled Georgia and Miss. State, while LSU lost to the Dawgs and were average against the Bulldogs.

As with other matchups this year, the LSU D is going to have to find some way to stop the Georgia Tech running attack. If they can't, they'll be in for a long night.
The Line: LSU +4.5
The Call: Georgia Tech by 10
The Result: LSU 38-3
Wow, talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Over and over and over. LSU had problems this year, but they were obviously good enough to cause and capitalize on the plethora of mistakes that the Yellow Jackets made throughout the game.
