ATLANTA (WTOC) -

The University of Georgia Bulldogs worked on final preparations Friday afternoon before the SEC Championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Bulldogs just finished their final practice of the week. It was more of a walk through just to get comfortable inside the Georgia Dome before Saturday's game.

The big question for this game is how comfortable will Aaron Murray be? He has been sketchy in big games. When Georgia Coach Mark Richt talked to his quarterback about getting ready, it wasn't in the context of how big the game is. He just put it in terms that Murray, a very good student, would have no problem understanding.

"You always liken it to a math test or something like that. If you study and you know the material, you're going to walk into that math test confident that you're going to do well. If you didn't study if you're not prepared, you're going to walk in there nervous. And one thing about Aaron is he prepares so he'll be ready to play," Richt said at a news conference.

Murray has had math on his side for about a month now. In his last four games - 13 touchdowns, 0 interceptions. That goes back to the Florida game, which was his first career victory over a top 10 opponent. He didn't play well in that game.

The Bulldogs are going to have a hard time winning on Saturday if they don't get at least a solid performance from Murray.
