We know the final two already.

Alabama clinched the Western Division title last Saturday with its 24-15 win over LSU, meaning Florida and Alabama will face off in the SEC championship game for the second straight year.

Florida had already clinched the Eastern Division title two weeks ago with its win over Georgia.

The Gators will be gunning for their third SEC title in the last four years. The Crimson Tide haven't won an SEC title since 1999.

The real drama in Atlanta on Dec. 5, though, will be whether or not that game is for the right to play in the BCS National Championship Game. If Florida and Alabama both stay unbeaten the rest of the way (and they were No. 1 and No. 2 in the latest BCS standings), the winner in Atlanta is assured of moving on and playing for college football's top prize.
