Bama is next:
Georgia wrapped its regular season with a dominating 42-10 win over its rival from Atlanta, claiming the Governor's Cup for the 11th time in 12 years. More importantly, the Bulldogs (11-1) are one win away from playing for a national championship.
That win has to come this Saturday in Atlanta against No. 2 Alabama in the Southeastern Conference title game. While presenting Georgia coach Mark Richt with the Governor's Cup, Gov. Nathan Deal said: "Keep up the good work. We're looking for a national championship."
Georgia's players and coaches mostly kept mum last week on the subject of playing Alabama and all that game will mean. After thumping Tech (6-6), the Bulldogs were ready to look ahead.

Gurley ran for 97 yards on 12 carries, Murray completed 14 of 17 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns. Rambo was a one-man wrecking crew, also snagging an interception that tied Jake Scott’s UGA career record of 16 in addition to the take-away fumble recovery. Alec Ogletree seemed to be all over the field, notching 15 tackles. Christian Robinson had another strong game with 13 tackles (two for loss) and before big John Jenkins had to leave the field he got 11 tackles plugging the middle.
It wasn’t quite the equal of the 51-7 butt-kicking 10 years ago, but Saturday’s domination of the Jackets by the Dogs came close.
The result is the biggest margin of victory for the Dawgs in their year-end rivalry game since 2002. And speaking of records: With Saturday’s scoreboard assault, the 2012 Bulldogs are officially the highest-scoring squad in program history. That same 2002 team scored 450 points in 14 games; with 12 games down and two to go, this year’s squad is already at 456. Safety Bacarri Rambo tied Jake Scott’s school record for career interceptions at 16. And Aaron Murray is now the first SEC quarterback to put up three consecutive 3,000-yard seasons.
One explanation for the Dawgs dominance:
That is a huge talent disparity that even a coach as good at X's and O's as Paul Johnson cannot close. Georgia vs Georgia Tech Recruiting Rankings Last 5 Years From Rivals.com

Georgia Football Coach Mark Richt was asked to look back on some games – games the Bulldogs lost – in his press briefing Sunday to talk about the upcoming Southeastern Conference Championship Game.
Georgia Bulldogs LB Alec Ogletree had a vicious tackle of Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets WR Robert Godhigh during Saturday's college football game in Athens that turned out to be more of a combination body slam and pile driver.
It happened in the second quarter as Godhigh caught a 4-yard pass, and probably wished he hadn't after Ogletree picked him up and slammed him...
A lot will be made of Rambo’s statement that Georgia is “more talented than Alabama”…however, if you listen to the whole interview, Rambo is hardly dissing the Tide. Either way, it makes for good media fodder, I guess. But you can guarantee there won’t be too many more interviews granted after this one. Either way, give it a quick listen.
ATHENS, Ga. The final result was the only thing not obvious from the beginning.
It took No. 3 Georgia four plays and 63 seconds to score the first of its seven touchdowns and that initial drive was all it took to tell the difference between the Bulldogs and their state rivals.
Georgia is bigger, faster, stronger, more athletic and better coached than Georgia Tech, and that was...
Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree is one of the Bulldogs’ better tacklers, and he proved that with his WWE-style takedown of Georgia Tech wide receiver Robert Godhigh on Saturday. The expression “tossed like a rag doll” is one of the most overused in football, but Ogletree did just that with Godhigh after the receiver caught a pass over the middle with less than two minutes...
This Saturday, The Georgia Bulldogs will be playing their inner stat rival - Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets ran a fast pace option style offense. Mark Richt needs to prepare his team for the Yellow Jackets like it's the national title game.Mark Richt hasn't prepared his teams weekly in the past seasons. I would predict that the Bulldogs are thinking about Alabama this...
Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall each ran for a pair of TDs, and No. 3 Georgia stayed right in the thick of the national championship race with a 42-10 rout of Georgia Tech on Saturday.
The Bulldogs (11-1) extended the domination of the Yellow Jackets, beating their state rival for the 11th time in 12 meetings. This one was a laugher from the...
In all the headline grabbing hoopla surrounding the Georgia Bulldogs—completion of their regular season, a guaranteed trip to Atlanta to face the Alabama Crimson Tide for the SEC Championship, and a 50-50 shot at landing in the National Championship game depending on Saturday’s outcome—some may have missed Georgia’s latest commit, Kennar Johnson. Johnson is another JUCO prospect...
ATHENS, Ga. -- The Georgia Bulldogs collected a trophy at midfield for another win over their state rival, then got some encouragement from the governor in their quest for a bigger reward.
ATHENS - The No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs have earned their way to another SEC Championship game. In Georgia’s fifth trip to Atlanta for the conference title game the Bulldogs will play No. 2 Alabama in what amounts to a play-in game to see who will face Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship.
NEW YORK -- Two years before the playoffs start in college football, the Southeastern Conference is staging a semifinal to determine who plays Notre Dame in the BCS title game.
Alabama (.9236) was second and Georgia (.8911) third in the BCS standings released Sunday. The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs play Saturday in Atlanta for the SEC championship.
The winner will advance to the...
