College Football Week 14: #2 Alabama Vs. #3 Georgia

Auburn v Alabama Georgia Southern v Georgia

#2 Alabama

#3 Georgia

Nick Saban doesn’t like that the loser of this game will get passed by Florida for a BCS bowl bid. Of course Florida would rather have the chance to get to the national championship, as Alabama does. Coaching Like Alabama, Georgia crushed its in-state rival last weekend. Now the Bulldogs are one win away from playing for a national championship.
Alabama was absolutely dominant against Auburn in the Iron Bowl. The Tide gained 483 yards and converted 11 of 14 third downs. Offense The Bulldogs didn’t put up huge numbers last week, but they were incredibly efficient. Moving the ball against Alabama will be much more difficult, but Georgia has the weapons.
Alabama held Auburn to 163 yards, but Georgia’s balanced attack will provide a much stiffer challenge. Defense Georgia’s D can match Alabama’s as far as individual talent and will be counted on for another big game.
The Tide is eight overall in the Football Outsiders special teams rankings. Special Teams The Bulldogs’ special teams are middle-of-the-road; they are weighed down by poor punting and punt returning.

The winner is

Auburn v Alabama
#2 Alabama
3 out of 4

Georgia made it this far last year and was smacked by LSU in the SEC title game. They are better prepared this year, but they are still underdogs.
