The Georgia Bulldogs (11-1, 7-1 SEC) stormed through the East Division this season by a comfortable two-game margin to earn its rematch with Auburn. The Tigers (10-2, 7-1) have earned a trip to Atlanta after claiming wins over both Georgia and Alabama, and despite losses to both Clemson and LSU, are poised to earn a berth in the College Football Playoff with a win today.

    Malzahn Talks ARK Rumors 👀

    Kyle Deckelbaum @KATVKyle

    Moments ago, Gus Malzahn was asked about his future at Auburn, and Arkansas in particular. So you're going to be the head coach at Auburn next year? "I want to be." @KATVNews https://t.co/iMNHxVM4yU

    This is the fourth time in school history that Georgia has won 12 games in a season. 13-1 in 2002 12-1 in 2017 (so far) 12-2 in 2012 12-0 in 1980 (national champs) https://t.co/w5NrrFkJek

    Has Georgia Punched It's Ticket?

    The Georgia Bulldogs have won the SEC championship, while avenging its sole loss of the season in convincing fashion. The general consensus is that a one-loss SEC champion is a lock for the College Football Playoff. But the Bulldogs came into tonight's title bout behind not only Auburn, but also Alabama. Will the Tide be favored over the Bulldogs? Probably not. But then again, last year, we saw Ohio State favored over Big Ten champion Penn State, so there's precedent. Keep a close eye on the Wisconsin-Ohio State and Clemson-Miami games tonight. Wins by Ohio State and Miami could really throw a wrench into the clockwork.

    Seven more points off of a turnover for the Bulldogs, and Georgia tacks on the two-point conversion to push the lead out to 14. Just 13 minutes away from the end of regulation, and it's 21-7.
