ATHENS, Ga., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- The college football season winds to a near close on Saturday with a number of key games on the docket.

Among the key games is Georgia at Georgia Tech.

Because of LSU's rout of Arkansas on Friday and because of the new tiebreaker in the SEC, coutesy of the BCS, the fifth-ranked Bulldogs may have to beat the Yellow Jackets to clinch the SEC East title and earn a return trip to the conference championship game.

"It's strange to think you have to beat an ACC team to get to the SEC championship game," said Georgia Coach Mark Richt. "I'm sure Florida is thinking the same thing."

Georgia (9-2) and No. 11 Florida (8-3), which hosts No. 9 Florida State, are assured of a share of the East Division title, and eighth-ranked Tennessee (9-2) can make it a three-way tie by beating Kentucky.

Other key matchups include Miami at Pittsburgh, TCU at SMU, Nevada at Boise State, Virginia Tech at Virginia, and Toledo at Bowling Green.
