The next conference we will preview for the 2022 season is the SEC. It was quite a memorable 2021 season for the SEC, as they not only saw two teams in the college football playoffs, but the National Championship was an all-SEC affair, that had Alabama facing Georgia.

The SEC East had a notable year as well, as the bully out west, Alabama, which usually takes all the spotlight, got outshined by the Georgia Bulldogs. Could that be the case again in 2022? Georgia comes in as the heavy favorite to represent the SEC East this December, as they return many talented players and bring in high-end recruits. Georgia comes into the season ranked as the #3 team in the country, and only one other SEC East team, Kentucky Wildcats at #18, is ranked in the top 25. Can the Florida Gators return to prominence and challenge Georgia for the SEC East throne? We think Georgia is just too talented, with a roster full of future NFL players. The Bulldogs have created a gap between them and the rest of the SEC East, and we don’t see anyone catching them this year. The Georgia Bulldogs will represent the SEC East.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Alabama Crimson Tide won the SEC Conference Championship last year

  • Alabama beat the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC championship
  • Alabama lost to Georgia in the National Championship rematch
  • Alabama is ranked #1 in the preseason polls

Another year and another dominant team for Alabama this upcoming season. Having been the Goliath of college football since Nick Saban took over the program, it’s no surprise that the Crimson Tide ranked #1. It doesn’t really matter how many players Alabama returns from last year’s team, as they recruit so well, they are always in the thick of the national championship race. Will this year be any different?

There aren’t many teams in the country that can hang with Alabama, let alone the SEC West division. As Brian Kelly came down from Notre Dame to take the LSU job, LSU has a shiny new head coach. Will this be enough to vault LSU back into the championship conversation? Probably not in the first year. Texas A&M may have their best team under Jimbo Fisher and will be pressured to start competing with Alabama for the West division title. Arkansas and Ole Miss are two teams that are ranked in the bottom half of the top 25 and dark horses to be a surprise contender. Will any of this matter? We don’t think so, as Alabama has a supremely talented team, and almost no school can match their talent year in and year out. We are picking Alabama to win the SEC West and meet Georgia in the conference championship.

Georgia finally got the monkey off their back when they beat their nemesis, Nick Saban, and the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship. Don’t think Nick Saban has forgotten about that. He should have his team ready to go and highly motivated to take back the crown in the SEC and college football. We are picking Alabama to beat Georgia in the SEC Championship game.
