SEC Regular Season Concludes With Georgia Leading The Way – ESPN 98.1 FM

The SEC regular season is over. While some teams like Georgia stayed strong from start to finish, others grew as the season progressed.

Georgia’s season remains undefeated

For the second year in a row, the Georgia Bulldogs went unbeaten in the regular season. This marks the first time in school history that the Bulldogs have gone consecutive seasons undefeated.

While Georgia ended the regular season on a high, the team has more work to do.

“We didn’t come into this season going 12-0,” said quarterback Stetson Bennett. “We tried to go 15-0.”

Georgia pulls off a 37-14 win over Georgia Tech en route to the SEC Championship. The Bulldogs got off to a slow start in that win, but turned it around in the second half and pulled away to victory. The Bulldogs will look to carry that momentum into the SEC Championship and playoffs.

LSU: #1 in SEC West

The Tigers ended the regular season 9-3. The team fell against opponents Florida State, Tennessee and Texas A&M. LSU lost to Texas A&M 38-23 en route to the SEC Championship.

The Tigers got off to a slow start, going into halftime behind the Aggies. While the third quarter looked promising, LSU couldn’t stop Texas A&M’s offense. Quarterback Jayden Daniels fumbled in LSU territory, resulting in the Aggies retaking the lead.

LSU will face Georgia on December 3 for the SEC championship.

South Carolina is making improvements

The Gamecocks finished the year 8-4. South Carolina ended its regular season by defeating two top ten teams – Tennessee and Clemson.

South Carolina knocked Clemson out of the college football playoff race after topping the lead with a narrow 31-30 win. This win propelled the previously unranked Gamecocks to 20th place in the AP Top 25 College Football Poll. The team ended its season in a ranking for the first time in nine years.

Head Coach Shane Beamer has had various accomplishments in his two years with the Gamecocks. Because of his accomplishments, the university is considering a new contract that may include an extension and a pay rise.

Tennessee finished 6-2 in SEC

The Tennessee Volunteers achieved a midseason win over Alabama. However, the team’s hopes for a perfect season and a championship were dashed by SEC rivals Georgia and South Carolina.

While Tennessee couldn’t beat Georgia in the SEC East, the Volunteers pulled off several feats this year. They finished the season in the top ten for the first time since 2003 and broke the school record for points. The Volunteers ended their regular season on a high with a 56-0 win over Vanderbilt, who was ranked No. 7 in the AP poll.

Now the team is waiting for a seat in a bowl game.
