The Georgia Bulldogs are the SEC East Champions. The Dawgs overcame a slow start to score 4 second half touchdowns to beat Mississippi State 45-19 on Saturday in Starkville.
After the win, Coach Kirby Smart made sure the focus stayed on their next game against Kentucky. According to dawgnation.com, he didn’t hype on the division title. “We didn’t really talk about it in the locker room,” Smart said. “That’s wasn’t our goal, our intention in coming over here. We came over here to beat Mississippi State and we’re going to go and try and beat Kentucky.”
With LSU’s win over Arkansas, the Tigers earned a trip to Atlanta to face the Bulldogs on December 3rd.
“Why would anybody think that we’re going to talk or even think about them (LSU),” Smart said. “That’s the furthest thing from my thought process. All I can think about is how fast I can get on that plane to get rest so I can ready for Kentucky tomorrow because they (Kentucky) were done at 12.”
The Georgia Bulldogs are SEC East Champions for the 11th time. This will be the Bulldogs fifth trip to the SEC championship game in six seasons. You can check out the best moments from Saturday’s win below.
