Greg Sankey believes in the strong track record of the Southeastern Conference.
He became the SEC’s Commissioner in 2015, watching schools in the conference win six national championships. Sankey has yet to see the SEC not be represented in the College Football Playoff — since 2014 — and he does not see that happening this year.
People are looking at a scenario that if Georgia loses to Alabama in Saturday’s SEC Championship Game the SEC gets left out of the top four. Sankey assured ESPN’s Heather Dinich that the SEC will not get left out of the playoff.
SEC commish @GregSankey was bullish in his confidence the SEC will finish in the top four. He said the league’s record in the CFP is “a basis for the assurance that we will have a team in the CFP for the 10th consecutive year.”

Georgia is trying to become the first program of the modern-day era to three-peat as national champions.

Alabama, on the other hand, is trying not to let three years in a row go by without capturing a national title.
Both teams will battle at Mercedess-Benz Stadium for SEC supremacy.
