    Bring on Notre Dame.Book the flight to Miami. Alabama will play for a possible third national title in four years after beating Georgia 32-28 in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game on Saturday, and that victory is expected to land the Tide in the BCS title contest when pairings are released today. No. 1-ranked Notre Dame stands as the opponent in the Jan. 7 game in Miami.To get there, the Crimson Tide had to survive a blood-letting against Georgia, which Alabama coach Nick Saban compared to a boxing match in which his team had to punch through to the 15th round. It featured six lead changes, including three in the fourth quarter. It ended with Georgia at the Tide 5-yard line.
    “I don’t even know when the BCS game is,” a tired and hoarse Saban said afterward. “I’ll look at the calendar tomorrow.” Alabama running back Eddie Lacy, the former backup to NFL stars Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson, took the game’s most valuable player honors. He rushed for 181 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Afterward, Ingram, who attended the game, hugged Lacy and told him he never had seen him run better.The winning points, however, came on a deep pass when A.J. McCarron hit Amari Cooper for a 45-yard touchdown with 3:15 to play. Saban said the Tide took advantage of Georgia switching its defense to stop the run.

    “I told them the most important thing in this game was to execute the plan,” Saban said. “The second most important thing was to have a relentless competitive attitude that you will not be denied what you want. You will have to play 60 minutes in the game and it will be like a heavyweight boxing match and you have to punch your way right to the 15th round.” Knocked to the turf by a special teams breakdown that gave Georgia an 11-point lead late in the third quarter, the Tide responded with a punishing rushing attack led by most valuable player Eddie Lacy, who had 181 yards on 20 carries, and T.J. Yeldon, who had 153 yards on 25 carries. “The offensive line, they made big holes for T.J. and I and we were able to hit it for big gains,” Lacy said. Alabama rallied to take the lead, only to see Georgia respond in two minutes to regain the lead. Alabama answered again with 3:15 remaining, then thought they sealed the victory with a Dee Milliner interception with 45 seconds remaining.

    Big A Re: Latest Bama News 12/2/12 SEC Championship Edition

    With the SEC Championship Game and a berth in the BCS National Championship Game on the line, Alabama’s sensational freshman duo of running back T.J. Yeldon and wide receiver Amari Cooper delivered big time for Alabama on Saturday night in the Georgia Dome.Trailing 28-25 and facing third down and five yards to go at midfield, Yeldon slithered his way for just enough yardage to keep Alabama’s drive alive. On the next snap, Cooper snared AJ McCarron’s lofting 45-yard pass for the winning score as No. 2 Alabama rallied past Georgia 32-28 to earn a chance at a second straight national championship. Yeldon finished with 153 yards, including a 10-yard TD run and 2-point conversion, on a game-high 25 carries. Cooper caught seven passes for 127 yards and the winning score. Yeldon declined interview requests after the game, according to an Alabama sports information representative, but Lacy had plenty to say about his fellow running back.“T.J. played just like he has every other week,” Lacy said. “He’s got a great mind. He’s in a big situation but he doesn’t get rattled. It’s like he has been here three times himself.“As a freshman, you can’t ask him to play any better than he did tonight. He came out and executed. When his number was called, he made big plays. From an offensive standpoint, that’s what we asked for from him. He was able to come out and do it.”

    He said that for much of the time, Georgia had two safeties set deep, but that changed eventually. “They started playing an eight-man front and actually putting another guy in the box, which means they were playing single coverage with a middle-of-the-field safety with two guys in the slot,” Saban said.When Alabama saw that, the coaches considered going deep on the first play of the series. Instead, the Tide ran T.J. Yeldon for 3 yards, McCarron passed to Michael Williams for 2 and then Yeldon ran for 5. The play to Cooper came next.“I said, ‘Let’s try to take the clock and the game, make a first down or two, and then take one (deep),” Saban said. “They kept playing that same thing, trying to stop the run. “So it was a big play on third-and-five to get a first down running the ball. We would have gone for it on fourth down there I think for sure. Then we took the shot, and AJ made a great throw, and Coop made a great catch.

    Both teams talked all week about their championship caliber defenses but it was the back-and-forth struggle between their offenses which made this SEC Championship Game the best in its 21-year history. There was something for every fan — big hits by both defenses, special teams plays (all on the Bulldogs’ side) and clutch plays offensively. In the end, the national television audience was dazzled by quarterbacks Aaron Murray and AJ McCarron, who brought their teams back from the brink of defeat time and again. While McCarron got a huge assist from his running backs, it was his bomb to Amari Cooper that provided the game-winning points. And not to be outdone, Murray got a second chance after an interception was overturned in the final moments and led his team inside the Alabama 5. Both teams put on a show to remember.

    As confetti christened the Alabama football team the 2012 Southeastern Conference champions Saturday at the Georgia Dome, a fan carried a sign: "Can't Beat SEC." The Crimson Tide had executed a 32-28 nail-biter over Georgia, and players were celebrating atop a platform, holding aloft blue discs with the conference logo. This followed the widespread circulation on the Internet last week of a cartoon. It depicts a hulking elephant and bulldog in boxing gear peering down at a leprechaun with the caption, "One of us will be right with you…"

    Barrett Jones hobbled into Alabama's locker room in the bowels of the Georgia Dome, two crutches supporting the 6-foot-5, 302-pound All-America center's frame. "You guys don't mind if I take a seat, do you?" Jones asked the collected media as he sat in front off his locker, his No. 2 Crimson Tide having beat third-ranked Georgia 32-28 for the SEC title and a spot in the BCS Championship Game. He was drained. Physically — suffering an undisclosed injury he said wouldn't keep him from playing for a national title — and emotionally after a game that he would call "probably my favorite win I've ever had." But Alabama isn't finished yet. For much of the nation, this was the national title game. The Tide, though, have simply earned the right to play to keep their conference perched atop the college football world. Six consecutive SEC titles, two of which came courtesy of these Tide. Standing between them and No. 7 is top-ranked Notre Dame.
