4. Who Will Win the East?

It’s a two-horse race at this point: Georgia and Missouri. And the math is simple – Missouri wins out and they are in; if they lose Georgia goes to Atlanta.

If Missouri can beat Tennessee and Arkansas, could they win the SEC championship too? That seems highly improbable but you never know. The Tigers would be 10-2 but seem like the weakest 10-2 team to come out of the SEC in a while. It’s hard to imagine them beating Alabama, Mississippi State or Ole Miss. Georgia, on the other hand, would have a really good shot at winning the SEC.

If either of these two teams upset the West opponent in Atlanta it would throw a major wrench in the conference’s playoff plans. Unless total chaos ensues, there likely would be no SEC teams.
