Georgia more excited about SEC title game than rematch with Auburn


ATHENS — To get a good gauge of what playing in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday means to Georgia’s players, one need to look to no one other than Lorenzo Carter.

The senior outside linebacker from Norcross, Ga., has been more vocal than anybody else this year about wanting “to play for a championship” before he left Georgia. It’s something Carter did every year when he was playing high school ball with the Blue Devils, and it’s something he hasn’t done since he has been with the Bulldogs.

Until now.

No. 6-ranked Georgia (11-1) will play No. 4 Auburn (10-2) on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta with an SEC championship and College Football Playoff berth on the line. The Dogs are pumped about it ― Carter chief among them.

“Everybody’s really focused,” Carter said Monday at the Bulldogs’ pre-SEC championship news conference. “We’re playing for a championship. We’ve got a lot on the line.”
