Georgia is projected to stay at No. 14 this week and control their own destiny for a BCS bowl game, but that means getting a win over the SEC West champion in the SEC title game.

The Georgia Bulldogs officially clinched the SEC East by getting by the Kentucky Wildcats 19-10 on Saturday. With the narrow win Georgia is not expected to move up when the latest BCS projections come out. The Michigan St. Spartans who easily defeated the Indiana Hoosiers are expected to pass over Georgia, but with the Clemson Tigers losing that keeps Georgia at No. 14.

To reach a BCS bowl game Georgia still needs to win the SEC title game where they could face either the LSU Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide or the Arkansas Razorbacks. Those three teams also happen to be the projected top three in the BCS standings this week.

Alabama was one of the big winners this week and according to SB Nation's Samuel Chi has the inside track for one of the two BCS title slots:

The weekend could not have played out more perfectly for the Crimson Tide, who are now all but assured of a second BCS title game berth in three years if they can beat Auburn. It might even make sense for Alabama to root for LSU next week to ensure that it doesn't earn the extra headache of having to play in the SEC title game.

Week 13 projected BCS standings:

1. LSU
2. Alabama
3. Arkansas
4. Oklahoma State
5. Stanford
6. Virginia Tech
7. Oklahoma
8. Oregon
9. Boise State
10. Houston
11. South Carolina
12. Kansas State
13. Michigan State
14. Georgia
15. Michigan
