College football: When is the SEC Championship Game?

No. 2 Georgia takes care of Missouri

Last year's SEC Championship game featured Auburn, which defeated both national championship participants in the regular season, and national runner-up Georgia.

Three weeks after the Tigers defeated the Bulldogs by more than three touchdowns at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Georgia won the 2017 SEC Championship 28-7 thanks to a dominant ground game, an efficient night from quarterback Jake Fromm and an advantage in the turnover battle.

The Bulldogs' win sealed their place in the College Football Playoff, where they fell to Alabama in the national championship game as the Crimson Tide won its fifth national title in nine years.

With four SEC teams ranked in the top 10 in the AP Top 25 poll – No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Georgia, No. 5 LSU and No. 10 Auburn – along with Kentucky and Mississippi State in the rankings, there should once again be fierce competition in the SEC, especially in the SEC West.
