We are just a few hours away from the 2021 SEC Championship Game, where the No. 1 ranked Georgia Bulldogs will take on the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide.

Posted up in Atlanta, ESPN’s College GameDay closed its show like it always does – by picking the winners of the day’s biggest game.

Accompanied by guest picker and country music star Zac Brown, they all made their picks…

“This team has been consistent the whole year. I don’t see any reason why Georgia cannot win this game. I’m going with the Bulldogs.”

Pick: Georgia

“Today is the day….I grew up, my dad had a picture of Erk Russell on the wall….if the offense can’t score, they can’t win. Bulldogs all day long. This is our time!”

Pick: Georgia

“How often does Nick Saban get a chance to come into a game as an underdog? You know that they’re going to come in with an attitude and Bryce Young has the ability to make plays.

One thing that stands out to me about Georgia is this brotherhood. They love that they have for one another, especially on the defensive side of the ball. I just can’t see that being denied today. Close game, but Georgia secures an SEC championship.”

Pick: Georgia

“Zac, you like Georgia, right? You like music, right? Listen to this, please (Sweet Home Alabama begins to play)….Zac, how you like that song? Well, I like it! I like a team that’s more desperate. I like Alabama!”

Pick: Alabama
