ESPN's "College GameDay" is headed to Atlanta for the SEC championship on Saturday. And Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, and the gang have a special musical guest.

On Tuesday, college football's favorite pregame show announced said guest via Twitter.

The Zac Brown Band will perform for "College GameDay's" championship week special. No. 3 Alabama travels to ATL for an SEC bout against No. 1 Georgia. The Bulldogs capped off an undefeated regular season with a 45-0 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Crimson Tide struggled mightily before eventually pulling away from Auburn in four overtimes. It's not often that a Nick Saban coached team enters as an underdog, but that's the case for Saturday afternoon.

Even with an 11-1 record and the Heisman frontrunner behind center, Alabama is still viewed as being outmatched. Which speaks to just how dominant UGA has been all year.

According to ESPN's Football Power Index, Georgia has a 66.5 percent chance of winning the SEC and locking up the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff.

We'll see if that prediction holds true when the two SEC powers kickoff at 4 PM ET on Saturday. CBS is on the call with the usual suspects in the booth, Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson.
