2012 SEC Championship, Alabama vs. Georgia: Preview and TV schedule

Kevin C. Cox

The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs meet for the league title, not to mention a spot in the BCS National Championship game.

The Alabama Crimson Tide face the Georgia Bulldogs in the 2012 SEC Championship game on Saturday afternoon with more at stake than just a conference title. Alabama and Georgia are No. 2 and No. 3 in the latest BCS standings, which means that the winner of the SEC title game will advance to play for the national championship against Notre Dame.

Alabama won the SEC West with a 7-1 conference record, with the Crimson Tide's lone setback coming at the hands of Texas A&M, which finished 6-2. Georgia also finished the season 7-1 in league play, its lone loss coming against South Carolina. The Bulldogs beat Florida this season, giving them the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Gators, who also finished 7-1 in the East.

The Crimson Tide come into the conference championship game ranked first nationally in both scoring and total defense. They are No. 43 in total offense. Georgia ranks 22nd in total defense and 24th in total offense.

Game time, TV channel: 4 p.m. ET, CBS

Odds: Alabama is favored by 7.5 points.
