It will be quite a sight to see on Saturday when the No. 6 LSU Tigers head to Athens to take on the No. 9 Georgia Bulldogs.

Two of the top quarterbacks in the nation meet for the first and only time in their careers on Saturday after at one time they were slated to be teammates.

Georgia Head coach Mark Richt has coached Aaron Murray for five years, and happened to coach Zach Mettenberger at Georgia briefly before he was dismissed from school for disciplinary reasons. The two enrolled at UGA in the same signing class.

Now, the two former teammates will square-off in a game that could help decide which team wins their division and makes it to the SEC Championship game, which typically propels the winner into the BCS National Championship game.
