Alabama and Georgia are set to square off in the SEC Championship on Saturday in a game that has high stakes.

If Georgia wins, it will undoubtedly reach the CFP, but Alabama is gunning for a big win to try and make it into the Playoff. The game is setting up to be one for the ages.

On this day, Dec. 1, 11 years ago, Alabama and Georgia were duking it out in one of the most exciting SEC Championship games in history.

Alabama and Georgia came into the game as the No. 2 and No. 3 teams in the country respectively. Both teams were looking to reach the BCS National Championship game, so the game had very high stakes.

Georgia struck first after a successful fake punt on 4th down followed by a touchdown pass from Aaron Murray to Jay Rame. But Alabama answered back late in the second quarter with a touchdown of its own, followed by a field goal to take a 10-7 lead heading into halftime.

Georgia took a 21-10 lead in the third quarter after scoring early and then blocking an Alabama field goal, taking it to the house to score, but the Tide made it a 3-point game after answering back with a touchdown.

Alabama then took a 25-21 lead early in the 4th quarter, but the Bulldogs answered back and regain the lead.

Tide quarterback AJ McCarron led Alabama on a game-winning drive with less than 3 minutes in the game, giving the Tide a 32-28 lead late. From there, Alabama’s defense stood strong against Georgia receiver Chris Conley on a goal line stand to give the Tide a win.

Alabama went on to win the national championship against No. 1 Notre Dame.
