The nation's two top-rated quarterbacks will square off in the SEC championship game.
No. 3 Georgia's Aaron Murray and No. 2 Alabama's AJ McCarron have played in plenty of big games - with mixed results.
McCarron takes the ''it's just another game'' approach when asked about the stakes of Saturday's showdown for a BCS title shot. Murray didn't speak with reporters this week.
They're the SEC's two winningest active quarterbacks. McCarron was MVP of the BCS national championship game and led the winning drive against LSU. He also threw his only two interceptions of the season a week later in the team's lone loss, to Texas A&M.
Murray was 11 of 31 passing in a loss to South Carolina and threw three first-half interceptions in a win over Florida.
BEST OF MAXIM
What a week 13. Congratulations are in order for John Mitchell, who had the first perfect week of the year. Seth Doege’s unlikely interception-filled performance, worsened by some unfortunate tipped balls, spoiled my bid at a one-loss week, and with the season’s final set of games approaching we’re all vying for that .500 mark:
Zach Bigalke: 54-58-2 (3-6)
Alabama lost their one game to a red hot QB, and now with one step closer to a chance to repeat as National Champions, they go up against a quarterback who may be more dangerous.
If you try and compare Texas A&M's and new Heisman flavor of the season Johnny “Football” Manziel to Alabama’s opponent on Saturday, Georgia’s Aaron Murray, you would be surprised that...

Georgia State head coach Bill Curry coached his last game on November 10, 2012 in a drubbing 51-7 loss to Maine. The final score of his final game does not necessarily represent the final impact of Curry's coaching and football career. Curry took the job at Georgia State 12 years after his last time as a head coach at Kentucky in 1996. He was also previously the head coach at...
As Alabama and Georgia prepare for Saturday’s Southeastern Conference Championship Game in Atlanta, for some reason, much more has been made of Alabama’s one loss than has been made of Georgia being beaten once this season. In fact, there has been more talk about the Crimson Tide’s one loss in 2011 than about the defeat suffered by the Bulldogs.
Once upon the April mid, A-Day football on irons grid,
With McCarron, Yeldon, and Bell starring, K.M. swore
This team would be champing, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some ghosts gently rapping, rapping at the title’s door.
‘Stupid Echoes, that,’ I muttered, ‘yerning for that Irish ***** -
Only this, and nothing more.’
Who amoung us can remember the last Irish team...
The SEC Championship game will give one team a birth in the BCS Championship game against Notre Dame.

Bama-Georgia Ya’ll. Since many believe football barely exists outside the SEC, if you watch this you might not need to watch anymore football this week. (Sseriously though, you’d be an idiot if you did that.) Aaron Murray is super cereal about this game and issued his own personal media blackout. He’ll be fired up and ready [...]
I'm not telling you anything you don't already know but the last six BCS National Champions have come out of the SEC. Alabama and Georgia will meet in this years SEC Championship for the right to play Notre Dame to see if they can extend the SEC's streak to seven straight. Alabama comes into this game on a two game winning streak having just blown out their in-state rival...
