Is Georgia a legitimate contender?

If you turned the channel for just a moment, there was a good chance that you missed a score in the Georgia-LSU game. It was a high-scoring, back-and-forth affair in which the Bulldogs snapped the Tigers' 29-game win streak in the month of September with a 44-41 win. Quarterbacks Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger showed out with performances of 298 yards and four touchdowns, and 372 yards and three touchdowns, respectively. That might have been a nod to the officials, who set the tone early by letting the defense play and not calling ticky-tack penalties. What does this win mean for Georgia's championship hopes? Which team will win the SEC East? Which team will win the West?

CFB: (6) LSU at (9) Georgia

Three years after being dismissed from Georgia amid legal troubles, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger returns to Athens. But that's just a sidebar to this clash of top-10 SEC teams. Georgia lost its opener to Clemson, but responded by beating South Carolina. LSU, meanwhile, has pretty much cruised through its opening four games, displaying an effective Mettenberger-led offense that outshines recent Tigers iterations. Both have eyes on conference glory. Which team's dream stays attainable?

(6) South Carolina at (11) Georgia

The Georgia Bulldogs' encounters with the teams of South Carolina continue -- albeit this one at home, with the Gamecocks visiting Athens for another high-profile tilt. After losing 38-35 at now-No. 4 Clemson, can Mark Richt's team get back on track? If South Carolina is to prevent that from happening, a certain Jadeveon Clowney might want to improve upon last week's underwhelming performance.
