CFP National Championship pres. by AT&T: Georgia vs Alabama Vegas Odds
- Georgia is 13-1 this season (9-5 aginst the spread)
- Alabama is 13-1 this season (8-6 against the spread)
- Alabama defeated Georiga in the SEC Championship game on December 4
The stage is set, the Georiga Bulldogs square off again against the Alabama Crimson Tide, but this time it isn’t just for the SEC Championship, it’s for the AT&T National Championship. It is easy to think that since Alabama defeated the Bulldogs once already it would be easy for them to repeat their game plan, but I wouldn’t go that far. When looking back at that game, the Crimson Tide had to win that game in order to keep their playoff hopes alive while the Bulldogs were guaranteed a spot in the playoffs no matter what happened. We should see a much closer game this time around.

CFP National Championship Presented by AT&T Predictions
The National Championship is finally here, with the two teams that almost all fans could have predicted. Some might not be as excited since we have a rematch of a game earlier this season, but the SEC teams have proven time and time again how much more dominant they are than any other conference in college football. Georgia is going to come out of the gates angry with their loss to the Crimson Tide eating away at them. With that being said, I look for the Georgia Bulldogs to come out of this game as the 2022 National Champions.
