A classic SEC football October showdown is on tap Saturday -- it's No. 2 Georgia vs. No. 13 LSU.

No. 2 Georgia (5-0, 3-0 SEC) has all the makings for another dominant run through the SEC East in 2018. The Bulldogs have outscored opponents 257-78 (42.8-13.0 average) through their first six games, including three consecutive double-digit victories against SEC opponents Missouri (43-29), Tennessee (38-12) and Vanderbilt (41-13).

No. 13 LSU (5-1, 2-1) surprised many with a rout of Miami in its season opener and a road upset of then-No. 7 Auburn in Week 3.

However, the Tigers are coming off a surprise loss at Florida which -- pending Saturday's game against the reigning SEC champions and an upcoming matchup against Alabama in two weeks -- could have spoiled their chances at a possible College Football Playoff appearance.

We've got Georgia vs. LSU time, TV channel, live stream, and odds information below. At the bottom of the story are live score updates that will start once the game is underway Saturday.

KEY MATCHUP:

Georgia's RB vs. LSU's front seven

The Bulldogs enter Saturday's game with the top-ranked rushing offense in the SEC. Georgia recorded 1,471 yards and 15 touchdowns on 244 attempts through its first five games, which includes an average of 245.17 rushing yards per game and 6.03 yards per carry.

LSU currently ranks sixth among SEC teams in rushing defense with an average of 121.67 yards per game and a 3.41 average allowed per attempt.

The Tigers will need a big performance from linebacker Devin White, who leads the team with 53 total tackles (26 solo) and 6.5 tackles per loss.

Prediction:

LSU beat writer Scott Rabalais (The Advocate):

Georgia 23, LSU 16

"This is a game the Tigers can definitely win, but they are going to have to be near perfect to get it done. Georgia won at Missouri on the strength of defensive and special teams touchdowns. LSU simply cannot afford losing the turnover battle again and having that turn into non-offensive scores."
