Georgia gets rematch with LSU

12/1/2003 - Georgia Bulldogs

ATLANTA -- Georgia secured its spot in the Southeastern
Conference championship game Sunday, setting up a rematch with LSU
next weekend.

The fifth-ranked Bulldogs tied for first in the East Division
with Tennessee and Florida, bringing in the SEC's convoluted
tiebreaker system. It's based on a combination of the BCS standings
and head-to-head meetings.

The league announced Sunday afternoon that Georgia got the nod
for the title game.

The Gators had an outside chance to sneak in, but that ended
when they lost to Florida State 38-34 Saturday.

The Bulldogs (10-2) completed their regular season with a 34-17
victory over Georgia Tech, their third straight in the series.

No. 3 LSU (11-1) beat Georgia 17-10 back in September.
