Tonight's Georgia vs Alabama live stream will mark the second time in five weeks these teams face each other. The Crimson Tide beat the Bulldogs, 41-24 in the SEC Championship game on December 4th. If Georgia is going to force a different outcome, they will have to find a way to slow down Bama’s passing attack.

Georgia (13-1) allowed Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young to throw for 421 yards and three touchdowns in their previous matchup while Alabama wideout Jameson Williams reeled in seven passes for 184 yards and two scores. The loss was very much out of character for a Bulldog defense that allowed just 9.5 points-per-game throughout the season, best in the country.

The Bulldogs’ defense did have a bounce back game in the Orange Bowl, beating Michigan 34-11. Junior linebacker and projected first round pick in April’s NFL draft, Nakobe Dean came up with seven tackles in the win and including a sack. Georgia was also helped by Senior corner Derion Kendrick who picked off Michigan’s Cade McNamara twice.

Alabama (13-1) is coming off their dominating 27-6 win over Cincinnati in the Cotton Bowl. Young threw for 181 yards and three touchdowns in the victory, but the star of the Bama offense was senior running back Brian Johnson Jr. who exploded for 204 rushing yards. 

With a win, Alabama would notch back-to-back titles and give head coach Nick Saban his eighth national championship.

Georgia is a 2.5-point favorite against Alabama. The over/under is 52.5. Oh, and if you're wondering about the big game, we're keeping tabs on all things Super Bowl 2022.
