    - Georgia against Kirby Smart
    - LSU under Les Miles

    Never have been pumped up for Auburn mostly because its a game that we cant win but we cant afford to lose.


    But to answer your question, Tennessee every year. It never gets old beating them down.

    Outside that I guess: 2009 Texas, 2018 Oklahoma, 2011 Rematch with LSU, 99 Florida in Atlanta, and 2012 Notre Dame and Michigan.

    UT -- not even close and way ahead of AU.
    UGA -- after Herschel ran over us I was ready for revenge...
    UF -- we blew one SEC championship game on a double pass...glad to beat them anytime.
    MSU -- they have always wanted to win the fight more than the game...

    ...
    The 94 SECCG always is painful to remember. I blame that one solely on CGS for handcuffing Homer and Jay that day, and it really hits home at how lucky we were to beat them in 92. Spurrier schooled CGS just about everytime we met and it was infuriating.

    Florida and Tennessee in the 90ís were a pain. But TSIO still meant way more

    We never played UGA when Herschel was there.

    I was thinking of 1976 -- but Herschel had not yet arrived in Athens. We got waxed 21-0. OOPS.

    Re: Which SEC opponent (other than Auburn) were you the most pumped for?

    I am a child of the 90s. My first football memories were from the 1990 season (I was 7). So those 90s era SEC championship games with Florida were always special. 1992 and 1994 in particular, because of the stakes. Tennessee was always huge back then as well. It has lost so much luster over the last 15 years. And not just because Tennessee has fallen off the rails and Fulmer's shenanigans, but also because of the proliferation of TV games. The TSIO used to be THE GAME on that date, whether it was a 3:30 game or a 7 PM game. It was either Keith Jackson, or Ron Franklin on the call.

    LSU became huge after Coach Saban arrived. It was big before, but not like it is today. But those 1990s memories will always be special to me.
