13 Games To Look Out For This Weekend

1) (SEC Championship Game - Atlanta, GA) - LSU (12-0) vs Georgia (10-2) - The Tigers have roared through the regular season by winning all of there games by double digits except for a 9-6 overtime win over Alabama on November 5.

Now they will face a red hot Georgia team that is on a 10 game winning streak after dropping its first two games of the season to Boise State and South Carolina. This will be the third meeting between these two teams in the SEC Title Game.

Two weeks ago both teams had there bcs title game dreams dashed away as Oklahoma State fell to Iowa State on the road in overtime 37-31 and Oklahoma lost to Baylor for the first time in school history 45-38 on the road in Waco. If Oklahoma State wins they will have a case as well to get into the bcs title game with only one loss.
