A win guarantees the Bulldogs a spot in the SEC title game for a second straight season. That would also mean that its national title hopes are still alive considering the winner of the SEC Championship game has made it to the BCS Championship in six straight seasons. They certainly won’t be taking the Tigers lightly with what’s at stake.
Georgia got its mojo back with a 17-9 victory over Florida on October 27th. That was the game it needed to put itself in position to be SEC East champs for a second straight year. It carried over that momentum with a 37-10 win over Ole Miss last week. It has arguably played its two most complete games the last two weeks, so it his hitting its stride at the right time.

They rank 116th in the country in total offense (305.2 yards/game) and 85th in total defense (428.7 yards/game).
Georgia beat Auburn 45-7 at home last season. This contest wasn’t even close as the Bulldogs outgained the Tigers 528-195 for the game. Aaron Murray threw for 224 yards and four touchdowns in the win.
