Georgia Alabama

The Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide meet for college football's National Championship on Monday, January 8, 2018 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. Georgia travels the country trying to avenge last year's loss to the Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff National Championship game. Alabama has a predominant win over Georgia in the past 4 matchups.



It is not unexpected. Although Alabama had been slight betting favorites to win the national championship entering its Cotton Bowl win over Cincinnati, prop bets in recent weeks favored a Georgia over Alabama outcome. And after Alabama won, 27-6, on Friday afternoon and as Georgia’s lead swelled over Michigan on Friday evening, the Bulldogs emerged as national championship favorites on the betting market.

Georgia (13-1) now gets Alabama (13-1) — who cruised to a 27-6 win over Cincinnati at the Cotton Bowl earlier on Friday — on Jan. 10 in Indianapolis. The teams have met four other times in the previous five seasons, and seven times since 2008, with Alabama winning every time. (Source: theathletic.com)


Alabama (11-1) is trying to win the SEC championship for the eighth time under Nick Saban, and will look to avoid a second loss that would likely knock it out of CFP contention. Quarterback Bryce Young has the opportunity to make a Heisman statement against the best defense in the FBS, and the Crimson Tide have won their last seven appearances in the SEC title game. It’ll be Alabama-Georgia in the College Football Playoff Championship in chilly Indianapolis in a rematch of the SEC title game. The Crimson Tide -- a 27-6 winner over Cincinnati earlier Friday -- took down previously unbeaten Georgia 41-24 back on Dec. 4.

The rematch is set, and it’ll decide the College Football Playoff national championship. After a pair of easy wins in the semi-finals on Friday night, the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs – the only two teams to be ranked No 1 in the AP Top 25 this season – will meet again to decide the title on 10 January in Indianapolis.
