Tagovailoa Having Monster Season
Alabama sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a monster regular season and looked like the Heisman Trophy winner all season. Tagovailoa threw for over 3,100 yards and 36 touchdowns this season and compiled those numbers while sitting out most fourth quarters this season. Jerry Jeudy has been the top target so far this season, racking up 1,079 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns for the Crimson Tide. Alabama finally has an offense, and it might be the best in the country.
The offense isn't the only thing that has been impressive from Alabama this season. The Crimson Tide have allowed just 13.5 points per game this season, and have played their best against top opponents. Alabama posted two straight shutouts against LSU and Mississippi State earlier this season and certainly can limit Georgia's offensive output in this game.
Fromm, Swift Carrying Georgia Offense
Alabama gets the job done with their passing game, but Georgia must find success with their running game. Quarterback Jake Fromm and running back D'Andre Swift have been the main stars on offense for the Bulldogs this season. Fromm has thrown for over 2,200 yards and 24 touchdowns this season while throwing just five interceptions. Swift is nearing 1,000 rushing yards on the season and has found the end zone nine times for Georgia. The Bulldogs will need to put up points if they want to keep up with Alabama.
The Bulldogs defense will face their biggest test of the season in this game, and they must play their best game of the season. Georgia has allowed just 17.2 points per game this season, but have feasted on weaker teams. The Georgia secondary will be the key in this game, but their front seven needs to also get pressure on Tagovailoa to slow down the passing attack.
Bama Blows Out Bulldogs 12/01/2018
This game was highly anticipated since last season's thrilling title game. The Bulldogs have the same quarterback this season in Fromm, while Nick Saban has turned his team over to Tagovailoa. The Alabama offense has been unstoppable all season long, and that shouldn't change in this game. Georgia will keep it close for a while, but Alabama will eventually pull away.
