Georgia and LSU were both in the College World Series in 1987, 1990, 2004 and 2008 – with the Bulldogs winning the national title in 1990, and the SEC championships in 2004 and 2008.

One of Georgia’s most memorable victories in Baton Rouge came in 1978, when Lindsay Scott’s 99-yard return of the second half kickoff kicked off a 24-17 Bulldogs comeback.

When Georgia defeated defending national champion LSU 45-16 between the hedges in 2004, All-SEC Bulldogs quarterback David Greene threw five TD passes on 10 completions.

LSU won its first SEC Championship Game in 2001, as Nick Saban’s Tigers defeated Tennessee 31-20, costing Phil Fulmer’s Volunteers a berth in the BCS Championship Game.

LSU’s baseball team won five national titles under Skip Bertman’s watch in a ten-year period from 1991-2000, capturing the College World Series in 1991, 1993, 1996, 1997 and 2000.

Legendary LSU and NBA superstar “Pistol” Pete Maravich, who starred for the Tigers from 1968-1970, is still the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer, with an average of 44.2 Points Per Game.
