Saturday will mark the final SEC Championship Game on CBS, and there was no other way to send the conference off than bringing back Verne Lundquist.
Over the course of his broadcasting career, Lundquist became synonymous with the SEC on CBS. His voice is the track of many legendary moments in the conference’s history.
So of course, CBS brought Lundquist back to narrate their farewell video to the conference. Check it out below.
If that doesn’t fire you up for Saturday’s game, nothing will. Everything is on the line, and CBS is ready to broadcast what could be a legendary chapter and a fitting close to a successful partnership.
Kirby Smart predicts deciding factor in SEC title game vs Alabama
Moreover, Kirby Smart provided some insight into what he believes will be the deciding factor in Saturday’s SEC title game.
When Smart’s Georgia Bulldogs take on the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday, it’ll be another chapter in the rivalry between the best of the SEC over the last couple of seasons. It’s always come down to the small details, and that’s what Smart is expecting in Atlanta.
“Who handles those momentum swings, and the line-of-scrimmage,” Smart revealed, asked what the deciding factor in Saturday’s game will be during an appearance on ESPN’s College GameDay. “I’d like to say explosive plays. Both of us, when you look at explosive plays, the guy that’s won the explosive plays has usually won the game, that’s a big indicator.
“But who manages those momentum swings better may be the one who sticks it out.”
Alas, Georgia has been able to handle both of those things on their way to back-to-back national titles. The Bulldogs have a chance to make history this season, and with the Crimson Tide standing in their way, we’ll see if Kirby Smart and company can survive and advance beyond Alabama.
