The SEC Championship will once again feature two of the nation's top defenses in Alabama and Georgia.

Week 14 in college football is all about defense. 

We've got Alabama and Georgia in the SEC Championship Game, each with several dominant defensive performances already under their belt. Stanford, who slayed the mighty Oregon Ducks' high-powered offense just two weeks ago, takes on UCLA for the Pac-12 Championship

Notre Dame, who will meet the winner between the Tide and Bulldogs in the BCS National Championship Game, rose to the top of the college football world behind All-American linebacker Manti Te'o and its relentless defensive unit.

Note: All Grades are scaled to 100 in order to provide a more accurate rating. All statistics used came from the official NCAA website.
