Alabama vs. Georgia: Rome and Scott-Wesley look to make difference

Scott Cunningham

Jay Rome and Justin Scott-Wesley are hoping to impact their first SEC title game.

The Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide are readying to square off in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday afternoon in a rematch of last year's conference title bout.

However for some players such as tight end Jay Rome and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley, this is the first time they will get a chance to take down mighty Alabama, .

Last year, both were redshirt freshman, left to watch as Georgia was beaten 42-10 in the Georgia Dome by LSU for all the marbles. Now, both are weapons for star quarterback Aaron Murray on an offense that has shown it can be explosive.

Scott-Wesley feels ready to make the most of his chance, according to dogbytesonline.com:

"You always want to go there and support and be there in person. It’s something that’ll make you hungry. Now that we’re at this point, it’s motivation. We’re here now, we’re in the moment and we can contribute"

Neither player has had a major impact on the campaign, with Scott-Wesley having just three receptions and Rome coming down with 10 of his own. However, these are just the types of games when unheralded players tend to step up and make a name for themselves.

"We’ve been preparing every day with a championship effort, just going out and giving it our all because you know what’s on the line," Scott-Wesley said. "People are depending on you to do your job. You’ve got to come prepared and work like you want to win."
