The 2013 SEC Championship Game is nowhere near what we all thought it would end up being before the season started, but it’s still one of the most exciting matchups of the year nonetheless.
On Saturday in the Georgia Dome, the third-ranked and 11-1 Auburn Tigers will take on the fourth-ranked, and also 11-1, Missouri Tigers.
It’s a battle of two teams that have made incredible turnarounds this season, compared to last.
In their first season in the conference in 2012, Missouri was the laughing stock. They were seen as the guys who couldn’t hang with the “big boys” in the SEC.
This year, Gary Pinkel and his team have proven everyone wrong as they get set to possibly take their first SEC trophy in just their second year.
Auburn, on the other hand, has improved greatly from their 3-9 year in 2012. New head coach Gus Malzahn has turned this team into a viable national contender in just one season, and they’re coming off the biggest upset of the season so far, their miracle, last-second win over Alabama.
So, when these two revamped units meet one another on the field Saturday, something has to give.
Here’s a little hype video highlighting both squads that will surely get you even more fired up for the action on Saturday:
