Scarbinsky: Can Alabama and Georgia save the SEC Championship Game from itself?-al.comIt's the dirty little secret of what's supposed to be the crown jewel of SEC football. Everything about the SEC Championship Game - from the Georgia Dome venue to the Super Bowl atmosphere that peaks at kickoff - screams big-time sports spectacular. Everything but the game itself. The numbers don't lie. They've played 20 of these championship games, and only four of them have been decided by fewer than 10 points. Only one of those close games has been played in the last 14 years.LSU beat Tennessee 21-14 en route to the 2007 BCS championship. Otherwise, since Peyton Manning and UT inched by Dameyune Craig and Auburn 30-29 in 1997, 13 of the last 14 SEC Championship Games have been won by 10 or more points. In recent years, it's been a lot more. In fact, the last two years we've witnessed the largest margins in SEC Championship Game history.
