Let’s go back and time and recap last year’s SEC Championship.
Undefeated LSU will remain just that after a 37-10 rout over Georgia in the SEC Championship game. The Tigers are heading back to Baton Rouge as SEC Champions for the first time since 2011.
Thanks to star quarterback and Heisman favorite Joe Burrow, the Tigers dismantled the Bulldogs in nearly every aspect of the game.
LSU got off to an early lead scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter. Georgia got on the board early in the second with a 39-yard field goal by kicker Rodrigo Blankenship.
The Tigers closed out the half with a field goal of their own by Cade York.
They led 17-3 at the half.
Maybe the Dawgs would have better luck in the second half?
This wasn’t the case. Ed Orgeron‘s team pulled away in the third scoring 17 consecutive points.
UGA QB Jake Fromm connected with WR George Pickens in a 2-yard pass to put up seven for the Dawgs. It was then 34-10 LSU with 11:41 left in the game.
The likelihood of the Bulldogs scoring 24 points to tie the game was low. It was even lower after Cade York nailed a 50-yard field goal with 7:41 left in the quarter.
That ended up being the final score of the 2019 SEC championship. LSU walked away with a 37-10 win, an SEC Championship trophy and a strong case for the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings.
The College Football Playoff committee will release rankings on Sunday at noon. LSU, 13-0 will find out their playoff fate.
Georgia will also see where they sit after their loss to the Tigers and who they might face in a bowl game.
The Heisman Trophy winner will be crowned next Saturday in New York. With Burrow being named the MVP of the SEC Championship Game, it’s safe to say the odds are in his favor.
