SEC winner playing for national title game

Nonsense. Call me biased (did the SEC Banter tagline give it away?), but the national championship kicks off Saturday at 4 p.m. in the Georgia Dome. As champions of the nation's finest football conference, the Dawgs or Tide will have an entirely legitimate claim as the best team in college football and the de facto national champion.
