( TV: Sporting Alert) — No. 3 Georgia looks to stay in the hunt for playing the national championship game when it takes on Georgia Tech on Saturday morning.
The Georgia Bulldogs (10-1) have been quietly playing like a championship team under the radar, as most of the attention has been on the likes of Alabama, Kansas State and Oregon.
But on Saturday coach Mark Richt’s team can move closer to the playing in the BCS game by beating Georgia Tech in its regular-season finale.
This would likely see them facing Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship game Dec. 1 with the winner getting a stab at the big contest.
Although his team sits in a great position to play in Miami, Richt wasn’t looking past the Georgia Tech game, despite questions surrounding other areas.
“Right at this moment, all I can think about is Georgia Tech,” he said.
“Does anybody want to talk about Georgia Tech?” he asked.
No. 2 Alabama will also take the field on Saturday knowing that they too control their own destiny. A win over Auburn would put the Crimson Tide into the SEC championship game with another shot at playing for the BCS title.
No. 1 Notre Dame (11-0) takes on Southern California and a victory here on Saturday would see the Fighting Irish booking their place in the national title game.
USC (7-4) have been struggling in recent weeks where they’ve lost three of their last four games. The Trojans will also be without quarterback Matt Barkley, who suffered a sprained right shoulder in his team’s 38-28 defeat to UCLA last Saturday.
