The bidding process is about to get underway as the Naval academy and U.S. Military Academy are ready to receive bids for future games. You can’t not watch.
SERIES HISTORY: Alabama leads Georgia 37-25-4. It’s the first meeting between the schools since the 2012 SEC title game won 32-28 by the Crimson Tide. The versatile and exceptionally athletic senior and former defensive back feels like he has been with Georgia for a decade, and is finally the go-to receiver for the Bulldogs. How does all of this fit into our week four College Football Playoff projections?

Despite Alabama’s loss to Ole Miss two weeks ago, this could be a preview of the SEC championship game.
As for this game going a ways toward defining Georgia’s season, Mitchell said, “I look at it like this: If we win a game, we build momentum”. Georgia’s potent offensive attack doesn’t just depend on All American tailback Chubb (ranks fifth nationally in rushing) and All American signal-caller Lambert (ranks second nationally in quarterback efficiency) but both will be counted on heavily if Georgia is to pull off the upset as the home favorite. Chubb also has reached triple digits in rushing yards in 12 straight games.
Players don’t look at betting lines or worry about that kind of stuff, but that doesn’t mean they’re not aware of it.
“Based on what they’ve been able to do in four games, I’m talking about a total, complete team”.
As Alabama coach Nick Saban noted at the time, “These are the kind of games that you should come to a place like Alabama to play in”.
Saban and Alabama (3-1) will get their shot at Georgia (4-0) in Sanford Stadium on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. Which team casts aside that history and executes to its potential?
To top it all off, his girlfriend, Adeline Kenerly, will officially be crowned “Miss Georgia” at halftime of the season-defining game. “I know our fans will do their part, and I’m looking forward to seeing them do their thing”. Nothing matters until the Alabama game! 1 Mississippi State last season, for instance.
Saturday’s game is the biggest test to date for the Georgia Bulldogs defensively. Alabama owns the all-time advantage, 15-8, and has won the last eight meetings overall while also winning five consecutive home matchups against Arkansas. The Bulldogs returned a host of experienced offensive lineman from a stout 2014 running game, and continue to pump out elite running backs every year. Force the other team to drive the length of the field.
More than anything, there was a sense of relief last week that perhaps the University of Alabama football team had finally turned a corner in one important area. “They haven’t allowed anyone to rush for 100 yards on them this year”. The problem is that after getting blitzed 35-7 by South Carolina and only advancing to the SEC championship by virtue of the Gamecocks’ losses at LSU and at Florida, few observers that season would have argued the Dawgs were even the best team in their own division.
