UGA Won SEC Football Championship

The Georgia Bulldogs won their first Southeastern Conference Championship in twenty years by defeating the Arkansas Razorbacks 30-3 in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Georgia quarterback David Greene was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, while running back Musa Smith ran for over one hundred yards and two touchdowns, and the Georgia defense stifled Arkansas all night long. The victory earned Georgia a spot in the Sugar Bowl New Year’s Day, where they would play Florida State, where Bulldog coach Mark Richt was offensive coordinator before taking the head coaching position at Georgia in December of 2000.
