Thanksgiving has come and gone, holiday lights are going up, and festive songs are playing in every grocery store across the country. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. However, while you’re getting into the holiday spirit, don’t forget about what might be the best game of the year – the SEC Championship.
Now, if you are like us at Guardian, you enjoy a good ol’ fashioned showdown, and this game might be the biggest thriller since MJ’s 1982 hit. If the holidays have kept you out of the loop, here’s what you need to know about Saturday’s game!
Georgia and Alabama will square off in Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA on Saturday December 4th. Kickoff is scheduled for 4pm ET, and the game will be covered by CBS. Georgia has had its best season in recent years, led by one of the top defenses in college football. Alabama is no stranger to this game, as they will be playing for their 7th SEC Championship title in the past 10 years.
Inside the Rivalry
Like every good matchup story, Smart and Saban have a long and intertwined history. Coach Smart spent 2007-2015 at Alabama, where he won 3 National Championships. Since coming to Georgia, Smart has led the Dawgs to 4 SEC East Titles and 1 national championship appearance. The Tide have beaten the Dawgs in their last 3 matchups, including an overtime 2018 national championship game.
In 2020, the SEC Championship only permitted 16,500 fans to attend, but we expect this game to be full of roughly 75,000+ loud and committed fans. It’s been reported that tickets are being resold at an average price of about $850, making it one of the hottest tickets in town.
Grab your popcorn because it’s going to be a showdown between some of the best talent in college football!
