Cecil Hurt of The Tuscaloosa News joined Host of Southern Fried Sports Travis Reier Tuesday morning preview the SEC championship game and discuss possible playoff scenarios.

"Roquan Smith was a force to be reckoned with for Georgia last January," Hurt said. "I don't know if they have a guy like that in their front seven this year. They are good, Kirby has recruited well, there's not a position they aren't athletic or big."

Hurt believes that Georgia deserves to be the third top team in the nation, which would almost guarantee Alabama a spot in the playoffs. Even if they were to lose to the Bulldogs, if it was a close hard fought game.

"We'll see what the ratings say tonight," Hurt said. "But in actual terms Georgia is probably the third best team in the country behind Clemson and Alabama."
