Maybe this is the league where Aaron Murray can truly flourish. Don’t be mistaken: Murray had a fine first three seasons, leading Georgia to two SEC championships game and putting himself in position for conference career passing records.

But, now, Murray has Georgia in position for bigger and better things.

SEC Championship Preview and Prediction: Alabama vs. Georgia

Previewing the SEC Championship between the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs
<p>  </p> <p> These teams are quite similar. Georgia’s a bit more explosive on offense, but Alabama’s more formidable on defense and has the edge on special teams. You also have to give the advantage to Alabama in coaching. The bottom line: Georgia is very good. Alabama is great.</p>

These two traditional powers—Alabama and Georgia—will play for the first time in the SEC Championship Game and for only the fifth time overall since 1995. The stakes couldn’t be higher: The winner will play Notre Dame for the BCS National Championship and the loser likely will be squeezed out of the BCS mix.
