Should Georgia upset LSU and win the SEC championship game on Saturday, there will be some serious last-minute jockeying among the bowls.
That’s because the Bulldogs would go to the Allstate Sugar Bowl as the SEC champions, and Alabama and LSU would still likely be No. 1 and No. 2 in the final BCS standings and square off in the Allstate BCS National Championship Game.
That would also mean just about everybody else in the SEC eligible to go to a bowl would move up a spot.
If Georgia loses to LSU in the SEC championship game, the Capital One Bowl is going to have a decision to make among three 10-win teams -- Arkansas, Georgia and South Carolina.
Historically, the Capital One Bowl has taken the highest-ranked available team, which would likely be Arkansas, but could opt to go with South Carolina this season, which would send Arkansas to the Cotton Bowl.
Here’s the way we see it all shaking out, although there are still a lot of different scenarios out there:
Allstate BCS National Championship Game, Jan. 9: LSU vs. Alabama
Capital One Bowl, Jan. 2: South Carolina
Outback Bowl, Jan. 2: Georgia
AT&T Cotton Bowl, Jan. 6: Arkansas
Chick-fil-A Bowl, Dec. 31: Auburn
Gator Bowl, Jan. 2: Florida
Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, Dec. 30: Mississippi State
AutoZone Liberty Bowl, Dec. 31: Vanderbilt
