That's pretty much the prevailing wisdom surrounding today's SEC Championship game between Alabama and Florida. The winner -- according to many analysts with finely coiffed hair that get paid good money to pay attention to these things -- will more than likely advance to the BCS Championship Game.

Throw in the unbridled passion surrounding an SEC game, a reigning Heisman trophy winner, the ghost of Bear Bryant, the uncertainty regarding Percy Harvin's injury and the vitriol being volleyed on each team's internet message boards, and you've got quite the ordeal.

For once it seems like the hype might be justified.

Who ya got?

Sports Pros(e) predicts: Florida 38, Alabama 35 in an instant classic.
