With what amounts to a national semifinal game on tap for Saturday in the SEC Championship Game, Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Richt is confident in the way his team is playing as it approaches its showdown with the BCS No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide.

"We've been playing pretty solid football on both sides of the ball," Richt said during a weekend teleconference Richt and Alabama coach Nick Saban held on Sunday. "We're doing a lot of the things you need to do to be able to compete in a game like this. We'll just have to wait and see what happens Saturday."

Richt was also quick to note the similarities between Alabama and his team, but finished his though by mentioning the thing the Bulldogs are chasing, the one thing Alabama and Saban already have accomplished in recent years.

"There are a lot of similarities," Richt said. "The one thing they've done is they've been national champions and we've not. They've been SEC champions and we've not during the time frame of these kids careers."
