One final game will determine which team will face off against Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship. No. 2 Alabama squares off with No. 3 Georgia for the SEC championship.

The second-ranked Crimson Tide are trying to make it back-to-back title victories and their third title in the last four years. After losing to Texas A&M a few weeks ago, Alabama has beaten both Western Carolina and Auburn 49-0 in the last two weeks.

Alabama understands what's at stake.

“It’s a great opportunity to play a really good team in the SEC Championship game,” head coach Nick Saban said. “To me, in all those games that I’ve been a part of, they are about as good as any game in the country other than the national championship game.”

Georgia has been playing extremely good football during the last month and half. This is Georgia’s second SEC title game appearance in a row as it hopes things turn out a little better than last year’s result. Georgia led LSU at the half 10-7 but ended up losing the game 42-10.

"We all know [what happened last season] and we've all been fueled by it," Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson said. "We want to play better and we want to show up at the right time."

No better time than now. After the really bad loss at South Carolina back in October, people were ruling Georgia out of the SEC East race. Since that loss, the Bulldogs have won six consecutive games including a win against then-No. 2 Florida.

Tthe SEC will have a shot at trying to make it seven national titles in a row with its hopes being in the hands of either Alabama or Georgia.
