The Georgia Bulldogs are for real.
#1 Georgia clinched the SEC East title on Saturday after a victory over South Carolina. A Kentucky loss to Ole Miss solidified it.
This marks the first time the program has won the division since 2012. Moreover, it’s also their first 9-0 start since 1982.

In just his second year, head coach Kirby Smart is turning the Bulldogs into a juggernaut. He must be pumped about the East title, right?
a�?There wona��t be any celebrating,a�? Smart said after the game. a�?Wea��ve got a game to play against Auburn next week. Thata��s where our focus is.a�?
He has a point. After Auburn away, they’ll take on Kentucky (6-3) at home. After that? Georgia Tech (4-4) at their house. Then there’s the SEC Championship game.
They may have to face an undefeated Alabama team come that time. All this matters in trying to book a spot in the College Football Playoff. While this is a huge achievement for Georgia, they shouldn’t be satisfied yet.
There’s still a lot of work to do.
