SEC Title Game: Georgia vs. LSU
LSU Comes Back To Win the SEC

Georgia started this game strong, forcing LSU to a 3 and out, followed by an impressive drive that led to a field goal.  It could have been a touchdown if not for a ball that should have been caught in the endzone.  They then executed a successful onside kick to get the ball back. Georiga was faced with a 3rd and long, when Mitchell dropped a pass with seven and a half minutes left in the first quarter that would have given them a 10-0 lead.  They had to attempt a field goal, and missed it to turn the ball over on downs.  Georgia continued to stay hot on defense, forcing another 3 and out.  Georgia would ultimately drive down the field again and get into the redzone.  They scored a TD on a pass from Murray to White to give Georgia a 10-0 lead over #1 LSU.
     The second quarter saw more of the same for LSU on offense, with no first downs in the half.  After a booming punt from Georgia, LSU's Mathieu returned a punt for a 62 yard TD to make it a 10-7 game.  Before the punt return TD with 5:48 left in the half, LSU had nothing going.  LSU's Simon came up with a tremendous play to stop Georgia on 3rd and long with under a minute left in the half.  LSU QB Jordan Jefferson was 2 for 8 with 7 passing yards.  LSU had a total of 12 offensive yards in the first half. 
     The second half saw a complete change in momentum.  Georgia fumbled on the third play of the half, which was recovered by Mathieu on the Georgia 27.  This set up a 15 yard Kenny Hilliard rushing touchdown to finally give LSU the lead, 14-10.  A Georgia 3 and out led to another TD by Hilliard on LSU's next drive.  Georgia would get a first down on the next drive, but then would turn the ball over, leading to yet another Hilliard touchdown, this time on a pass from Jefferson to make it 28-10.  Blue added a 48 yard rush TD in the 4th to make it a 35-10 game.  LSU added a pick 6 to seal the game off, 42-10.  LSU awaits who they will play for the BCS Championship.
