We now know what two teams will be playing for the SEC Championship on Dec. 3: the champions of the SEC West, the LSU Tigers, and the champions of the SEC East, the Georgia Bulldogs.
LSU traveled to Fayetteville, Arkansas, to face the Razorbacks in the cold and the Tigers came away with a 13-10 in an ugly game. A win is a win. To secure the SEC West, LSU needed some help from Alabama.
The Tigers needed the Tide to beat Ole Miss. Nick Saban and the Tide did just that as they stopped the Rebels on a fourth down pass play to secure a 30-24 win. Georgia secured the SEC East by taking a bite out of Mississippi State 45-19.
Here’s how the SEC teams fared in Week 11.

Entering the game against Kentucky, Vanderbilt had lost 26-straight conference games. That all changed when the Commodores had a game-winning drive with less than two minutes left to beat the Wildcats.

This one was over in the first quarter. Anthony Richardson had a rushing touchdown and then threw for a touchdown to build a 14-0 lead before Trevor Etienne had an 85-yard touchdown run to break the will of the Gamecocks.

Mississippi State kept it close for the first two quarters but Georgia pulled away in the second half to keep their undefeated season alive. The Stetson Bennett IV to Ladd McConkey connection was dynamic for the Georgia Bulldogs all night long. With the win, Georgia clinches the SEC East.

Auburn gets the first win of the Cadillac Williams era with a 13-10 win over Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M Aggies. With the loss, A&M is eliminated from bowl contention as they will not get six wins. What a win for the Auburn Tigers. Go crazy, Cadillac!
