One spot in the SEC Championship Game was sewn up last weekend, when Georgia topped Auburn to claim the SEC East title.
Alabama can't follow suit this weekend, as the Crimson Tide—along with six other SEC schools—host teams from outside the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in Week 12.
If you needed proof that television networks will at some point mandate a nine-game SEC schedule, this is it.
Nevertheless, there still is plenty of intrigue out there in the SEC. Tennessee is looking to keep its faint bowl hopes alive vs. Vanderbilt, while Ole Miss will look to do the same vs. LSU.
Here are the SEC picks for Week 12.
2012 Record: 75-17 (41-42 ATS)
