  • SEC Championship: Georgia Bulldogs vs Alabama Crimson Tide

    SEC Championship Football Game
    Crimson Tide and Bulldogs Battle for SEC Supremacy

    The Georgia Bulldogs will be looking for revenge against the Alabama Crimson Tide Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. Both teams return to the spot where Alabama snatched the 2017 National Championship away from the Georgia Bulldogs in overtime. The SEC Championship Game should provide a lot of fireworks on both sides of the football.

    TV: 4 p.m. ET, CBS.

    LINE: Alabama -13; O/U: 63.5.

    Top-ranked Alabama will undoubtedly be part of the four-team College Football Playoff. Fourth-ranked Georgia isn’t a lock, as of now, as the two squads prepare for Saturday’s SEC championship game at Atlanta. The Bulldogs can clinch a CFP spot by beating the Crimson Tide. A loss would almost ensure they are left out in the cold.

    The two squads met in last season’s national title game. Alabama prevailed 26-23 in overtime in what was the coming out party for Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The lefty came off the bench to throw three touchdown passes.
    “He can sit in the pocket and make every throw,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said during a press conference. “He’s very confident, and he’s got a presence about him in the pocket. He doesn’t fear rush; if he’s got guys bearing down on him, he sidesteps and gets the ball out, and that’s what makes him very special.”

    Alabama has been dominant all season. Head Coach Nick Saban is very wary of Smart and the Bulldogs. Smart used to be the Tide’s defensive coordinator.
    “Georgia is one of the most complete teams in the country,” Saban said at a press conference. “I think Kirby’s done a fantastic job there in terms of taking the players that were there and developing them in the style that he wants and doing a great job of recruiting to get new players to come and buy into their system. This is going to be the biggest challenge we’ve had to date.”


    The Dawgs are Ground Oriented and Bama Throws More than Usual

    Alabama is 12-0 on the season and 8-0 in the SEC.

    Tagovailoa has thrown a school-record 36 touchdown passes. He only has two interceptions on the season. The athletic lefty fuels an offense averaging 49 points per game.

    Jerry Jeudy is enjoying a standout season with 56 receptions for 1,079 and 11 touchdowns. Fellow receiver DeVonta Smith has 27 receptions on the season. He will forever be remembered in Alabama lore for catching the game-winning 41-yard touchdown pass in the national championship game.

    The Crimson Tide give up an average of 13.8 points per game. Nose guard Quinnen Williams leads the way and has recorded a team-leading 16 tackles for loss. and Defensive end Isaiah Buggs notching a team-best 9.5 sacks.

    Georgia is 11-1 on the season and 7-1 in the conference.

    Quarterback Jake Fromm was intercepted twice in last season’s title game, but has been picked off just five times this season. He has passed for 2,236 yards and 24 touchdowns.

    The attack that produces an average of 40.1 points per game and also relies on two standout running backs. D’Andre Swift has 962 yards and nine touchdowns. Elijah Holyfield has 896 yards and seven scores.

    The defense allows an average of 17.2 points per game. Linebacker D’Andre Walker has a team-high 6.5 sacks. Safety Richard LeCounte has a team-leading 64 tackles to lead the way.
