There are some great story lines for this week in college football, but nothing compares to the SEC Championship game.
The Alabama Crimson Tide will look to book a trip to Miami and play Notre Dame in the National Championship game by beating the Georgia Bulldogs. The Bulldogs would love to pull off the upset and win a big game for this program.
The odds are already posted for the BCS National Championship game depending on Notre Dame’s opponent.
Tide coach Nick Saban has been spending the week trading barbs with Florida coach Will Muschamp, but his real concern will be on the field Saturday.
Alabama’s two most difficult games of the season came against two decent quarterbacks. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray has the kind of talent that could put the Bulldogs in a position to score in this game.
On offense, Alabama will be without a key weapon as wide receiver Kenny Bell will miss 5-6 weeks with a broken leg that he suffered against Auburn. The Tide already had depth issues at wide receiver and Bell will be missed.
Georgia has an experienced team that will bring plenty of experience into this game. The Bulldogs may not pull off the upset but they will keep it close enough to take the points in this game.
The SEC Championship game will live up to all the hype.
