ATLANTA (AP) - Given little chance to knock off the nation's top-ranked team, Georgia doesn't have a lot to lose in the Southeastern Conference championship game.
Then again, No. 1 LSU probably doesn't either.
In all likelihood, the Tigers have already put together a resume that's impressive enough to get them to New Orleans for the BCS title game - even if the 12th-ranked Bulldogs pull off a huge upset Saturday.
Georgia coach Mark Richt is among those who feels LSU deserves to play for the national championship, whether they win or lose. He points out the Tigers have already beaten three teams ranked in the top eight of The Associated Press poll.
LSU coach Les Miles refuses to get involved in the debate. He says his team isn't looking past the Bulldogs.
