Who woulda thunk the Georgia Bulldogs would peel off nine straight wins to take the SEC East title after dropping their first two of the year? No matter how ugly a win it was against the Kentucky Wildcats, Mark Richt's Dawgs have earned their first SEC Championship appearance since 2005.
The season started in the Georgia Dome, with a loss to the Boise St. Broncos, and will now include a second stop. The No. 1 LSU Tigers look like the likely foe, giving the Dawgs a chance to play national spoiler, but the Arkansas Razorbacks and Alabama Crimson Tide aren't out of the running just yet. LSU plays Arkansas to conclude the regular season, and a Hogs victory could mean BCS standings dictate UGA's opponent.
Not bad for a hot seat, huh?
The SEC title game is set for Dec. 3 in Atlanta.
