COLLEGE FOOTBALL: DEC 02 SEC Championship Game - Georgia vs Alabama Photo by David J. Griffin/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

We joke about the SEC’s catch phrase, but the truth is this one actually does mean more. Georgia has played with its food at times and slogged through a host of injuries but finds itself where it needs to be to secure a third consecutive trip to the College Football Playoff.

Standing in the way: the Alabama Crimson Tide, the nemesis who for so long singularly prevented Georgia’s ascension to the top of the college football pyramid. It’s simple: win this one and the Red and Black are likely in the playoff, and not just that but the #1 seed with some room to spare.

Lose and you go home. Full stop. Short of a series of upsets totally out of character for this virtually vanilla season, it’s going to take being a conference champion to earn a dance ticket this year. Them’s the breaks.

Just win, baby. Winning solves all of it. Let’s do the thing.

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
