An amazing year for the Dawgs continues this weekend with another giant-step, culmination, next-order-of-business with the conference championship game in Atlanta.
The Red & Black sets the stage:
This year’s edition of the Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide looks a little bit different than those in the past, as Smart and his team stand undefeated atop the nation’s polls and Nick Saban and Alabama play an unfamiliar underdog role.
While there is no denying the sheer magnitude of the heavyweight fight, Smart has trained his team to stay focused and keep their eyes on the prize.
“Obviously we understand the impact this game has. I mean it’s huge, the SEC Championship is always huge,” wide receiver Ladd McConkey said. “We understand what we have to do and how we have to approach it. We are just taking it day by day and having the same mentality we’ve had all year.”
The mentality Georgia has had all year has been unbeatable thus far. The Bulldogs sit at 12-0 and enter the SEC Championship as the No. 1 team in the College Football Playoff Rankings, however, the job is not done yet.
It's not done yet, but everyone on campus and who has ever attended UGA feels incredibly proud of this group. They've earned everything they have achieved so far and there's no reason to doubt them now.
Like coach says, Go Dawgs!
