It's Championship Week Saturday in college football, with many crucial matchups on tap that could decide how the College Football Playoff bracket ultimately shakes out. ESPN's College GameDay came to us from Atlanta this week, where the No. 2 LSU Tigers will battle the No. 4 Georgia Bulldogs for the SEC Championship.

As always, the College GameDay crew made its picks and predictions for the biggest college football games during Championship Week. This Saturday's celebrity guest picker, Zac Brown, is an Atlanta native, Bulldog fan and one of the world's most successful country music artists as the lead singer of the Zac Brown Band.

College GameDay isn't official until Lee Corso makes his pick by donning the head of the team's mascot he selects to win. He went with Mike the Tiger and chose LSU to win the SEC Championship. The Tigers are 7-point favorites in Atlanta, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
