With a win over the Auburn on Saturday, the No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs would almost certainly earn a trip to face the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game. While each team has three games remaining on their schedule, Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray couldn't help but talk with Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald about the possibility of the matchup against the undefeated Crimson Tide:
"I bet they're going to be huge favorites going into the game, and rightly so," Murray said. "They're undefeated, they're the No. 1 team in the nation. ...That's still four weeks away. We still have to do our part. They have to do their part."
Before a come-from-behind win over the LSU Tigers, Alabama had won each of its first eight games of the season by a margin of no fewer than 19 points. With a win over either Texas A&M or Auburn in the final three weeks, the Crimson Tide would clinch the SEC West.
The Bulldogs need a win over Auburn to pull to even with the Florida Gators in conference play with a 7-1 record in the SEC East. Georgia owns the tiebreaker over the Gators, having beat them, 17-9, in late October.
