Alabama vS. Georgia Live stream. Alabama’s Jeremy Pruitt juggles CFP title game vs. Georgia and new job with Vols, Georgia vs. Alabama for College Football Playoff title: Who has the edge
Alabama head coach Nick Saban will face one of his former assistants for the 12th time in his career in Monday’s CFB National Championship. Georgia head coach Kirby Smart, who was Saban’s defensive coordinator at Alabama, has built a mirror image of the Crimson Tide in his first two seasons in Athens, Georgia.
If his Crimson Tide defense can slow down the Bulldogs’ top-20 scoring offense and star running backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb, the 43-year-old will have another championship ring to show off in Knoxville. If it can’t, the title will go to Kirby Smart, the coach who let him go two years ago at Georgia.
So it goes in an all-SEC matchup loaded with weird coaching cross-pollination. As for the on-field concerns, Smart is worried about the physical nature of the Crimson Tide on the interior. Outside of Auburn, Georgia hasn’t faced a team with so much strength on the offensive and defensive lines.
