Watch Them Now
Murray
UGa

11 Aaron Murray
Georgia
6-1 | 211 | So. | QB

Key Notes: LSU's defense is giving up just 248.2 yards per game, including only 162.3 through the air. Murray will test that veteran Tiger secondary. The sophomore has thrown for 2,698 yards and tossed just 10 interceptions this season while producing 32 touchdowns passing. That total ranks   behind only Case Keenum (43), Matt Barkley (39), Kellen Moore (38), Andrew Luck (35), Brandon Weedon (34) and Robert Griffin III (34). That's an impressive list to be a part of, and Murray hopes the talent that has placed him there helps the Bulldogs pull off a massive upset in the SEC Championship Game and extend its winning streak to 11 games. 

Other Players to Watch this Week: Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin (So., WR); Frank Alexander, Oklahoma (Sr., DL); Sammy Brown, Houston (Sr., LB); B.J. Cunningham, Michigan State (Sr., WR); Patrick Edwards, Houston (Sr., WR); Chandler Harnish, Northern Illinois (Sr., QB); Jayron Hosley, Virginia Tech (Jr., DB); Mike Hunnicutt, Oklahoma (Fr., K); Landry Jones, Oklahoma (Jr., QB); Jarvis Jones, Georgia (So., LB); Tyrann Mathieu, LSU (So., DB); Tyler Tettleton, Ohio (So., QB)

Keep Your Eyes on This

LSU has a little bit of history on its side Saturday. The Tigers, who could still make it to the BCS Championship Game even with a loss to Georgia, have the best winning percentage in the SEC Championship Game. LSU has been in the title contest four times, winning three. Its .750 winning percentage is followed by Florida at .700 (7-3 record), and then, guess who? Georgia is third although a loss in the Georgia Dome on Saturday would drop the Dogs to .500 (2-2) as they make their fourth title-game appearance.    

Georgia may have a shorter trek to Atlanta, but the Bulldogs haven't always felt welcome. In fact, UGA is just 4-4 in its all-time games in the Georgia Dome. The Dogs have gotten this far and won 10 games -- helping coach Mark Richt tie Vince Dooley for the school record for 10-win seasons at seven apiece -- behind the arm of QB Aaron Murray, who has guided the Georgia offense that has posted 408 points, just 42 off the school record set in 2002. Despite last year's 6-7 record, the 2010 Bulldogs scored 417 points to rank third on the chart. 

It depends which side of the field you're on Saturday in Indianapolis whether you want to relive Michigan State's miracle catch to topple Wisconsin back in late October. The Wisconsin side wants to make sure no such repeat happens, and if they play like they did while dismantling Penn State a week ago, it may be tough to stop the Badger bus on the way to Pasadena, Calif. RB Montee Ball, who has 11 rushing touchdowns the past four games, may need to carry the load. He did his part in the first meeting, although he only came up with one TD, his lowest total of the season.

Clemson needs to get its house in order quickly if it plans to ride out of Charlotte with a title because there is one thing for sure Saturday: Virginia Tech will be coming ready to play. The Hokies have been as under the radar as any top-20 team -- actually, now they're in the top five if you hadn't noticed -- can be. Much of that comes thanks to Clemson's Week 5 shutdown of coach Frank Beemer's bunch, when VT was held to a single field goal while on its way to an 8-0 start. The Tigers have lost three of their last four as Virginia Tech gained steam, churning to an 11-1 record and now looking for a little revenge.      

Everyone who follows the Big 12 circled this game on the calendar months ago. Even as late as the first week of November, it looked to be the biggest Bedlam showdown in series history, but a late loss by each team -- on back-to-back days -- has taken some luster off the matchup. Still, a conference title and BCS spot is on the line. Oklahoma, which entered the season atop the national polls, is looking to end the year on a strong note. Two losses isn't the end of the world, but in Norman, Okla., this season, it's a far cry from where everyone expected. The prize isn't too shabby for Oklahoma State either, although the key question will be whether the Cowboys will be amped up enough considering two weeks ago, it could have meant a chance at playing for the national title. Then again, it's Bedlam so there shouldn't be any reason to not be pumped for it.  

The short and sweet description of Friday's Pac-12 Championship Game? Short and not so sweet. It could get ugly for UCLA which bumbled its way to a 50-0 loss to USC last week but still gets to play in the title contest because of the Trojans' self-imposed sanctions. The Bruins', um, luck hands it a matchup with one of the nation's most explosive offenses which ranks third in scoring (45.9 ppg) and sixth in total offense (510.6 ypg). Put that up against a defense that ranks 84th in total defense and you probably aren't going to get anything pretty.
