For as long as there have been individual conferences, there has been debate about which conferences are superior to one another.
It's been a national consensus for many of the recent years that the SEC is the most dominant conference in the college football world.
Although many of us just shrug and push the talk to the side, it's actually extremely important when it comes to the BCS Rankings.
Think about it.
Right now, we have LSU, Alabama and Arkansas ranked as the top three teams in the country. All three teams come out of the SEC.
The strength of a conference is extremely important when it comes to deciding which teams will play for the national championship.
Why are there three SEC teams at the top of the rankings while an ACC team like Virginia Tech, with the same record as two of those teams, sits back at the fifth spot?
This weekend, Georgia is going to show the world why the rankings are the way they are.
Simply put, the SEC is the superior conference.
No. 13 Georgia takes on No. 23 Georgia Tech at Bobby Dodd Stadium tomorrow afternoon.
Who would have thought that this game could have national championship implications?
Obviously, neither of these teams will play for the title, but there's a chance that a team from each of their conferences could.
If Virginia Tech is going to get any help in the rankings they need ACC teammate Georgia Tech to come up big against the SEC East champions.
The Bulldogs aren't even considered one of the top three teams in the SEC, so if the Yellow Jackets fall short, it's hard to believe that Virginia Tech will get the nod ahead of a team like Alabama.
Actually, that's unlikely either way.
After the Bulldogs stomp on the Yellow Jackets, it will be even less likely.
Georgia started the season off terrible. They dropped their first two games against Boise State and South Carolina.
After giving up 45 points to South Carolina, the defense turned things around.
So much in fact, that they are currently ranked as the 11th-best scoring defense in the country after a nine-game winning streak.
That defense is going to be the difference maker in this rivalry showdown. The Bulldogs should have few problems containing the Yellow Jackets' triple-option attack.
Aaron Murray and the Georgia offense should be able to do enough to walk away with a decisive victory.
It will be a victory that gives the SEC bragging rights while we await for the final BCS rankings.
