2012 BCS standings: No. 3 Georgia draws praise, readies for SEC title game

A steady No. 3 in the next-to-last BCS rankings, Georgia fans sets sights squarely on the SEC Championship Game.

The Georgia Bulldogs' steady stay at the No. 3 spot in the seventh BCS rankings will likely end up meaning little in the grander scheme of the BCS, as when the Bulldogs take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game next weekend, the winner will be headed for the BCS title game.

But equipped with the latest BCS rankings, Team Speed Kills was still quick to praise the Bulldogs' effort in a blowout victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets with little on the line, and expected Georgia to make a real game of next weekend's winner-take-all SEC title game.

There was no hint of looking ahead in UGA's dominant win over Georgia Tech. It's going to be a tough task for the Bulldogs to take out the Tide in Atlanta, but make no mistake, it's going to be about as tough on the other team to knock this one off. I don't expect a repeat of last year's blowout loss to LSU.

At Dawg Sports, although the bloggers didn't take the time to dissect the BCS rankings given their relative lack of importance under the circumstances, the focus was squarely on the SEC title game.

It's not an exaggeration to say that this is the biggest game in which the Georgia Bulldogs have played since the Sugar Bowl on January 1, 1983. If we win this Saturday's game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, we will be in the BCS National Championship Game. And what's even better, we would be playing, of all teams, Notre Dame.
