Thanks to some help from Ole Miss, the Georgia Bulldogs are SEC East champions for the first time since 2012.
The Bulldogs knocked off South Carolina 24-10 on Saturday to move to 9-0. Then, thanks to a last-second touchdown, the Ole Miss Rebels bested Kentucky 37-34. Every SEC East team now has three losses, while the Bulldogs have none. Georgia has won every SEC game by at least two touchdowns, with its result Saturday being the tightest margin of victory all season.
Georgia does have two SEC games left, as the Bulldogs visit No. 14 Auburn next Saturday and then host the Wildcats on Nov. 18. The Bulldogs close the season with a road game at Georgia Tech. Georgia is also the No. 1-ranked team in the College Football Playoff.
INSTANT ANALYSIS: No. 1 Georgia proves it can win ugly, too
As for who Georgia might play, there are still a few teams alive for the SEC West crown. No. 2 Alabama takes on No. 19 LSU on Saturday. And Auburn is still a threat as well to win the SEC West. Alabama also has a game against No. 16 Mississippi State next week.
The SEC Championship Game is scheduled for Dec. 2. The last time Georgia played in the game, it lost to Alabama 32-28 in heartbreaking fashion, as Chris Conley was tackled short of the goal line on the game’s final play. Alabama went on the beat Notre Dame in the national championship game that year.
