ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Another week, another top 10 opponent for Georgia.

When the ninth-ranked Bulldogs host No. 6 LSU on Saturday, they will be only the fourth team in the BCS era to face three top 10 opponents in their first four games.

Georgia (2-1) opened with a loss at Clemson and followed with a victory over Carolina. Now, it's the Tigers between the hedges in a matchup between teams with definite national championship aspirations.

The Bulldogs have only one other ranked team the rest of the schedule -- No. 20 Florida, which isn't exactly in a good place after losing starting quarterback Jeff Driskel to a season-ending injury.

So, if Georgia can win out, it will be playing the SEC championship game, which usually guarantees a shot at a national title.
