Well it certainly wasn't easy. The 2012 SEC Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia certainly didn't disappoint.
In a game that had five lead changes, Alabama held on as time expired on the Dawgs and went home with a 32-28 win, the SEC crown and a date with Notre Dame in January's BCS title game.
