Even though the Crimson Tide head into this one as the “underdog” it is impossible to view them that way. Yes, unlike the Bulldogs they lost a regular-season game, but this Bama offense is tough to slow down and near impossible to stop. Georgia had appeared to prove that defense can win championships holding Alabama scoreless in the first quarter of the SEC title game.

Bryce Young and Alabama stormed back scoring 24 points in the 2nd quarter. We did see some offense from Georgia in their semi-final game against Michigan, but this is yet another Bama team that has a championship nearly at their fingertips. We have seen this story play out many a time, and Bama will leave with another trophy for their ever-expanding case.
