Dec. 1 -- Alabama winning SEC game
With a national title berth awaiting the winner, Alabama and Georgia played an uncharacteristically high-scoring SEC Championship, which made it all the more memorable. Alabama wideout Amari Cooper made a highlight reel catch, and eventually the game-clinching 45-yard touchdown reception with 3:15 remaining. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray charged the Bulldogs 77 yards down the field in just over a minute, but his decision to not spike the ball proved costly in the end as wide receiver Chris Conley ended up with the ball in bounds as time expired. Alabama's 32-28 win guaranteed it a spot to play Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship.
