The Georgia Bulldogs (12-1) are coming off their only loss of the season, a 41-24 loss in the SEC Championship game to Alabama. The Bulldogs led that game 10-0 in the early goings of the second quarter before the Crimson Tide took control outscoring Georgia 41-14 the rest of the way. Quarterback Stetson Bennett is ready to wipe that loss away after throwing two interceptions. Bennett threw just five picks all year prior to that matchup.

Even more rare than Stetson throwing interceptions are big numbers allowed by a normally stifling Georgia defense. Led by junior linebacker Nakobe Dean, the Bulldogs allowed a national best 6.9 points-per-game going into the SEC Championship. Prior to the 41 points Bama posted on them, their previous high for points in a game was the 17 points they allowed to Tennessee in November. Dean leads the team in sacks with five and will likely be a top-10 pick in April's NFL draft. 

The Michigan Wolverines (12-1) enter this game after winning the Big Ten championship with a dominant 42-3 win over Iowa. Senior running back Hassan Haskins led the way taking 17 carries for 56 yards and two touchdowns, while sophomore running back Blake Corum ran for 74 yards and a touchdown on just four carries.

Michigan’s defensive production was no surprise against the Hawkeyes as their average of 16.1 points-allowed-per-game was fourth best in the nation. Their senior defensive end Aidan Hutchinson has led the pack as he is coming off a phenomenal year. Hutchinson led the team in sacks with 14, second highest total in the country and is considered my many to be the number one overall pick in April’s draft.

Georgia is currently 7.5-point favorites against Michigan. The over/under is now 46.
