SEC Championship Game Location: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GA
SEC Championship Game Date/Time: Saturday, December 4th, 4:00 p.m. (ET)
SEC Championship Game Television Schedule: CBS

Key #1: The Dawgs have to stay loose and realize that they have nothing to lose
Head Coach Mark Richt has to know that this is a game in which his team can only win and not be a loser. Even if the Dawgs get blasted by 40, they still are the SEC East champs and still will have a spot in one of the better SEC bowl games this year thanks to this 10 game winning streak that they have gone on since September. LSU is clearly the better team in this game, and no one really believes that UGA can hang around. Richt’s job, which was once considered in some serious jeopardy, is now as safe as could be, and that means that this game is one that would only bolster his status and could give a massive payday to his school with a win.

Key #2: LSU can’t be complacent
The Bayou Bengals got off to a bad start last week against the Arkansas Razorbacks at home, falling behind by two touchdowns before finally turning on the jets in the second quarter and never looking back. Common thought is that this game doesn’t mean a heck of a lot to LSU, as it might ultimately be in the National Championship Game one way or the other, but you know that the Mad Hatter isn’t going to let his team get off of the gas pedal for one second. He and his Tigers should know just how dangerous the Bulldogs can be, especially in this building, where they will probably have a bit of a home field advantage. Remember that Georgia has already played one game this year here at the Georgia Dome, so it won’t be an unfamiliar setting.

Key #3: Aaron Murray absolutely cannot turn the ball over
It’s hard enough to move the ball up and down the field on the LSU defense without turning the ball over, but it becomes impossible to win games when you are giving the ball back to the boys in purple and gold. The Tigers have only turned the ball over a grand total of seven times all season long, so you know that forcing turnovers to get the ball back just isn’t going to happen all that often. Murray has had a great year, throwing for 32 TDs and 2,698 passing yards, and he is just continuing to rewrite the record books for passers in Athens. However, if he doesn’t figure out how to keep the ball in Georgia’s hands during the game and he gets flustered in the pocket, the Bulldogs just don’t stand even the slightest of chances.
