Georgia vs. LSU Memories - 2005

Georgia came into the 2005 SEC Championship ranked #13 in the country and fresh off a 14-7 win over rival Georgia Tech. LSU entered the game ranked #3 and heavily favored to beat the Dawgs for the SEC Championship for the second time in three years. Georgia jumped to a quick 14-0 with a pair of touchdown passes from DJ Shockley to Sean Bailey. After a Tiger touchdown made it 14-7, Georgia blocked a punt deep in LSU territory. DJ Shockley turned in a fantastic 7 yard touchdown run to make the score 21-7 at half.

Georgia continued to dominate in the second half. After knocking out JaMarcus Russell, Tim Jennings ran back a Matt Flynn pass for Georgia's final touchdown. Final score: Georgia 34 LSU 14.

Shockley's MVP performance included 3 touchdowns (2 passing and 1 running)

This will be my last LSU memories post of the week as we are heading to New Orleans tomorrow. Hope to see everyone in Baton Rouge on Saturday.

Champions...and there were still 14 minutes left to play when Tim Jennings sealed it. Sittin' third row upper deck that night. Great seats to see the two TD bombs in the 1st quarter.

Sitting a few rows deep in the endzone with Bubba...who insisted that $11 for a 6 oz. Jack & Coke was a good deal because he was legally purchasing it so close to a college football game. Can't buy booze in Sanford Stadium--oh, but if you could...
