The Crimson Tide enter the game at 13-1. Alabama is riding an eight game winning streak. Georgia is 13-1 and will be looking to avenge their lone defeat of the season, which came in the SEC championship.

Alabama has the country’s Heisman Trophy winner in star quarterback Bryce Young. Young will be without John Metchie, who tore his ACL in the SEC championship. Alabama defensive end Will Anderson leads the nation with 17.5 sacks.

Georgia’s top-ranked defense will face their biggest challenge of the season against the Crimson Tide. Alabama scored 41 points against the Dawgs in the SEC championship, which is 24 more points than any other team scored against Georgia this season.
