LSU clinches spot in SEC Championship Game, No. 1 Georgia one win away from clinching East
ATHENS — LSU clinched its spot in the SEC Championship Game with its 13-10 win over Arkansas and Alabama’s 30-24 win at Ole Miss on Saturday night.
The No. 7-ranked Tigers will likely face No. 1-ranked Georgia, which need only win at Mississippi State on Saturday night or at Kentucky next week to clinch its spot in the game.
The SEC Championship Game takes place at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
“They want to do something last year’s team didn’t do, and we didn’t win the SEC last year. So it’s one step at a time, and you can’t win the SEC until you win the SEC East.”
LSU beat Georgia 37-10 the last time it won the SEC title, in 2019, going on to win the CFP Championship Game with Joe Burrow at quarterback.
