In just another Top 25 showdown, two SEC powerhouses take a shot at one another as the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide get set for a Saturday Showdown.
The Crimson Tide have no looked like their usual selves, but got some of their swagger back in a 34-0 win over UL Monroe last Saturday.
Georgia knocked off Southern 48-6 in what was a solid tuneup game before getting into this tough affair with Alabama.
The Crimson Tide just haven’t looked as dangerous as they’ve been known to be this season. That has a lot to do with their QB situation along with their questionable defense.
After suffering a shocking, 43-37 loss to Ole Miss, the Crimson Tide got back on track with a 34-0 shutout performance against UL Monroe.
QB Jacob Coker struggled once again as that marks the 2nd straight week he’s been a mess. After throwing two crucial interceptions against Ole Miss, Coker went just 17 for 31 and looked out of rhythm against a weak UL Monroe team.
Alabama’s defense will be tested against RB Nick Chubb, who has the potential to be this year’s Heisman winner. Alabama allowed just 9 yards on 31 carries last week to UL Monroe.
While the Warhawks run game isn’t nearly as good as Georgia’s it still has to be a breath of fresh air for Nick Saban to see his defense bounce back.
The Bulldogs know they not only have a legit chance at the SEC Championship, but also a chance at making the BCS Playoff. A win over Alabama is not only a must, but will prove to the nation this team is for real.
The Bulldogs have won their games by an average of 32 points on the season and while that hasn’t come against stellar competition, they’re still doing exactly what they have to do.
RB Nick Chubb is doing just as expected as he’s ran for 599 yards and found the endzone 7 times, with 6 of those on the ground. Chubb rushed for 131 yards against Southern last week which marked the 12th consecutive game he’s rushed for over 100 yards.
Making this team even more dangerous, QB Greyson Lambert has been even better than Chubb this season. Lambert completed 96 percent of his passes in the 52-20 route of South Carolina and followed that up with 9 of 10 for 146 yards and 2 touchdowns. Lambert got some much needed rest as he was very limited in the win.

It has been quite a while since Alabama was an underdog in a game. Although Georgia has looked extremely impressive this season, grabbing any points with Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide is just too hard to pass up on.
