1. Defeat you to Bennett
Georgia has played at elite levels throughout the season, despite the lack of an elite quarterback. Stetson Bennett has served 1,985 yards, 21 touchdowns and just 5 passcuts. Do you think of the word “game manager”? Alabama’s defense is not Georgia’s defense, but Crimson Tide leads the SEC with sack and tackle. It is one of the jobs for Anderson and Co. to thwart Bennett and Georgia’s attacks.
2. Stamp out the run
Both teams are good at running and are ranked 1-2nd in the SEC. Georgia allows only 79.0 yards per game on the ground, Bama 80.6. The difference is the effect the two teams have on the ground game. Georgia is ranked 25th in the FBS, with 201.8ypg in a hurry. Bama is ranked 77th in the 150.3ypg rush, including 6 netyards against the LSU. In addition, Alabama’s top back, Brian Robinson Jr., is pulling the hamstrings.
3. Catch the nova
Georgia Pickens in Georgia got some snaps and caught a pass against Georgia Institute of Technology. This is his first action since the tearing of the ACL in the spring. Bulldogs can jazz up passing games with receivers that make the best difference. Bama’s quarterback Bryce Young has selected the top two SEC receivers, John Mecchi and Jameson Williams. Bama has the upper hand when it comes to throwing it and winning, as Young did in Auburn.
4. And the winner is …
It’s easy to imagine Georgia choking another championship to slip through its clutch. After all, bulldogs are against Alabama. However, Georgia is a good team in almost every position except quarterbacks. Georgia suffers if it needs elite quarterback play to win, but if the defense does the job, it has to deal with the bama and proceed to the CFP as it did for all the rest. Georgia 27, Alabama 20.
