The Georgia Bulldogs face off against the Alabama Crimson Tide in an SEC showdown tonight for the College Football National Championship.
Alabama (12-1) comes into this game after a dominating 24-6 win over defending National Champion Clemson. Alabama’s defense looked like it was playing against the scout team, limiting Clemson’s running game to a minuscule 1.9 yards per carry. If the Crimson Tide want to win this game they’re going to have to do the same to Georgia’s running game. This game features great running games and elite defenses, so what I think is going to decide this for the Tide is how well Jalen Hurts can throw the ball. He made some great passes in the game against Clemson, including a play where he untucked the ball and threw a wobbler to a wide open Calvin Ridley. The Tide defense is going to come to play and so will their running game, so if Hurts can put the hurt on Georgia with his legs and his arm then Alabama should cruise to a victory.
Georgia (13-1) won the SEC this year after a convincing win over Auburn and they also defeated Oklahoma in an 54-48 overtime thriller in the National Semi-Final. Georgia showed a lot of poise after falling down big early and being able to battle back and win! The most impressive person on the field was by far Jake Fromm, the true freshman didn’t seem rattled by the bright lights and large deficit and continued to make the plays required of him including a big drive at the end of regulation to tie the game and send it to OT. Can he do it again against a much better defense and on an even bigger stage? we’ll have to wait and see. He will rely heavily on those 2 dynamic backs they have in Sonny Michel and Nick Chubb, They were actually the number one rushing tandem of all time this year in college football. They ran for a combined for 326 yards and 5 touchdowns against Oklahoma including 41 yards and another TD receiving. They will need a similar effort from both backs against Bama if they want to win the title.
