The Program: Breaking Down the SEC Championship Game

Michael FelderFeatured Columnist IVNovember 4, 2016

The SEC Championship Game is the biggest event going on this weekend, and the winner will punch a ticket to the BCS Championship Game. Alabama and Georgia have been to the SEC Championship Game a combined 13 times, eight for the Tide and five for the Dawgs. But the pair have never met in Atlanta. This is a big game on a big stage in the ATL, and it should be a good one.

So, what should you be watching for? What is going to be the key to this game?

Luckily, here at The Program, we've got you covered. Jarvis Jones should be the biggest concern for Alabama fans. The hybrid linebacker is a force on the edge, and he has terrorized offenses all season long. What can the Tide's offensive line do to slow down Jones and try to neutralize his efforts?

On the flip side of things, Georgia's offense is going to have to score a few touchdowns to win. That means winning some battles in the trenches against the likes of Jesse Williams and finding openings against Alabama's secondary. Will Aaron Murray, with his ability to move outside of the pocket and roll out, find success through the air?

This weekend is setting up to be something special. Mark Richt versus Nick Saban for the right to play for a title. Who ya got?
