ATLANTA — Joe Burrow and the LSU offense proved to be too much for Georgia. The No. 4 Bulldogs fell in the SEC Championship Saturday night to No. 2 Tigers, 37-10.
Georgia will now have to wait and learn which bowl game they will receive on Sunday afternoon.
With LSU in the playoff, the most likely destination will be the Sugar Bowl. Many experts predict Georgia will face Baylor, who lost to Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship.
The College Football Playoff Committee will announce their selections Sunday starting at Noon. The New Year's Six bowls will also be announced.

LSU takes a knee and will win the SEC Championship, 37-10.
Cade York snuck in a 50-yard field goal to make it 37-10.
Georgia finally finds the endzone four minutes into the fourth quarter. Fromm connects with Pickens who made a nice grab for the touchdown. The Dawgs went 75 yards in 13 plays but they trail 34-10.
Burrow and Cam Newton will have something else in common pretty soon: The Heisman Trophy.
The Tigers turned the turnover into seven more points. Burrow connects with Jefferson for his fourth touchdown of the game.
Fromm throws his second interception of the night. LSU will take over at the Georgia 13 yard line.
Touchdown, Tigers. In a Heisman Trophy moment, an incredible dancing move from Burrow kept the drive alive for LSU. A few plays later, Burrow finds Marshall Jr.
Matt Landers dropped a pass in the endzone that would have been a touchdown. Georgia goes for the field goal but Rodrigo Blankenship misses his second of the night.
Welcome to the game, George Pickens. The wide receiver converts a much-needed fourth and 8th.
Georgia's defense held the Tigers to 3 points on the drive, but the team now trails by 17.
Injuries continue to be a problem for Georgia.
On the opening kickoff, Walter Grant takes a hard hit to the head. Grant lied on the field for several minutes. After the review, LSU's Tori Carter is ejected for targeting.
Georgia's defense gets a stop as Cade York misses a 48-yard field goal wide left. LSU will go into halftime with a 17-3 lead and will receive the ball in the second half.
Fromm and his receivers were clicking until an interception from LSU. It is the first interception for Fromm since the South Carolina game.
Some good news for Georgia: Fromm, who briefly left the game with an ankle injury, is back.
The Tigers added three more to the board with a 41-yard field goal from Cade York. It extends their lead to 17-3.
Jake Fromm is in the injury tent.
Jake Fromm goes down hard on a sack by Grant Delpit and limped off the field. Stetson Bennett enters the game and his first throw is incomplete. Georgia punts.
The Dawgs are on the board: Rodrigo Blankenship doesn't miss from 39 yards and makes it a 14-3 game.
End of 1st Quarter: LSU 14, Georgia 0
Burrow finds a wide-open Terrace Marshall Jr. in the endzone to make it a 14-0 game at the end of the first quarter.
Rodrigo Blankenship's 52-yard field goal attempt had the length, but he just missed it wide left.
Jake Fromm finally connects on a long pass with Dominick Blaylock for the first down. The wide receiver immediately grabbed his left knee in pain after the pass.
Trainers helped the Marietta native off the field and carted him to the locker room. Georgia is already without Lawrence Cager ( and George Pickens (suspended for 1st half.)
LSU's Clyde Edwards-Helaire appeared to have fumbled and Georgia recovered it. But a review overturns the call.
Kirby Smart got a little excited celebrating the almost-fumble:
The Tigers strike first. Joe Burrow gets enough time from his offense line to find Ja'Marr Chase for a 23-yard touchdown. Officials reviewed the play and ruled the call stands.
Joe Burrow's pass is batted into the air but he catches his own deflection and runs for a first down.
Jake Fromm and the Georgia receivers aren't on the same page at the moment. A dropped pass, a pass caught out of bounds and under-thrown ball from Fromm results in a Georgia punt.
Georgia went for the deep ball on the first play of the game. Jake Fromm's pass is dropped by Tyler Simmons. Swift makes its 3rd and 7th. Georgia converts a first down on a face mask penalty by LSU.
Georgia will start the game off on offense after LSU wins the toss.
The Dawgs will be without Lawrence Cager, who is out with an injury, and wide receiver George Pickens in the first half. Pickens was suspended for the first half after an ejection in the Georgia Tech game.
Coach Kirby Smart said the offense will have to turn to D'Andre Swift, Jake Fromm and the others guys who got them there.
Jake Fromm and the Georgia offense are getting warmed up. Georgia fans hope to see a complete performance from the Dawgs offense today.
Uga is the definition of a DGD!
