Alabama vs. Georgia Updates, 2022 College Football Playoff Championship Highlights

As Alabama tries to repeat as national champions for the first time in 10 years, Nick Saban’s team will have to beat Georgia for the second time this season. The Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs met previously in the SEC title game, where Alabama easily won 41-24 in a game in which Heisman winner Bryce Young threw for 421 yards and three touchdowns against a tough defense of Georgia.

This game, in addition to being a rematch of this year’s SEC title game, is also a rematch of the 2018 national championship game, which Alabama won 26-23 in overtime.

DECOURCY: CFP expansion must be a top priority

Alabama has been both domineering and vulnerable at times. They have the sixth best total offense in the nation, are the second best team at third down and also have the third highest scoring offense. That’s due in large part to Young, as well as wide receiver Jameson Williams and running back Brian Robinson, who both left in the SEC title game.

Yet four of Alabama’s victories this season were by a single possession, including a comeback in the Iron Bowl that ended in four overtime. The Tide also have a loss on their schedule, when Texas A&M beat them with an out field goal.

BENDER: Top 25 preseason too early for 2022

Meanwhile, Georgia has relied heavily on its defense to win games this season, ranking first in scoring defense and second in total defense, while still scoring 38.8 points per game. The core of Georgia’s defensive success has been linebacker Nakobe Dean and defensive lineman Jordan Davis, as well as defensive coordinator Dan Lanning.

Offensively, the Bulldogs don’t have a real star in any position like Alabama does, although quarterback Stetson Bennett IV has been solid, while running back James Cook and wide receiver George Pickens could have standout games.
