The biggest game on the 2020 college football slate is Saturday night at 2nd place in Tuscaloosa, Alabama Alabama Plays as host in 3rd place Georgia In the remake of the Classic 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship Showdown and the 2018 SEC Championship Game. The coaching match between the teacher (Crimson tide coach Nick Saban) and the student (Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart) settled the curveball 12 to 6 on Wednesday night, announcing that Saban had tested positive for COVID-19. Despite losing soap practice for the rest of the week, Three straight negative COVID-19 tests Bryant-Denny will officially put him back at the stadium for the Georgia vs. game.
Certainly, the comparison between the Alabama Danger Line and Georgia’s Defensive Front is the equivalent of a fixed object versus unstoppable force. On the other hand, Alabama’s defense vs. Georgia’s offense could turn into a more pillow fight based on what we saw in the first three games of this season (especially for the Alabama defense).
With the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs set to clash on Saturday night in the premiere game so far this season, let’s break down the match and look at our CBS sports expert selections for the SEC in the CBS Game of the Week. Odds by William Hill Sports Book
Alabama: Quarterback Mac Jones Contrast with the recent tradition of variation manufacturers taking Snap for the Crimson Tide. Jones leads the nation in passing ability (220.35 rating) and effort in yards (13.3). He finished second at 79.5 with a completion percentage. The real key in this game will be the game of running backwards Nazi Harris. The senior had 206 yards and five touchdowns last week vs. Ole Miss. He must set up the run to find the Jones stud receivers. Devonta Smith, Jalen Waddle And John Metchi III Deep downfield.
The Crimson Tide defense burned 647 yards last week and 7.52 yards per attempt. It was against Lane Kiffin’s offense that he used the tempo to keep the defense behind and did not allow Saban to set the crew. Ole Miss does the same. This is not what Georgia does. Look at the Crimson Tide defense – especially the defensive line – if they have time to set up, and not get too confused before the snap. It will go a long way to win.
Georgia: Man, last week’s Tennessee vs Defensive performance was irregular. Walls Danger Line, one of the best in the country (and still is), lit up like Christmas trees by bulldogs defense. But don’t fall asleep in secondary. Allowing 198.3 yards per game and 5.2 yards per attempt, they lead the SEC in crossing the defense. It’s the best unit in the country – and not even close to second place.
The emergence of a broad receiver Chris Jackson That’s huge for a quarterback Stetson Bennett IV and Bulldogs offense. This allowed a fellow wide receiver George Pickens They put secondary on their toes for Bennett to get coverage of each other, and make a big impact in the running game. Speaking of the running game, Jamir White, Kendall Milton, Kenny McIntosh And the rest of the running backs showed through three games that they have the potential to be one of the most dynamic groups in the country.

Game Prediction, picks
Give me the Crimson Tide to win and cover. Saban was in the odd week, where he did not coach and now coaches the team. His philosophy, plan, game plan and coaching staff are all the same, which means that all Alabama has to do is not scrap things. It’s not. Jones & Co. to score 30 points against Georgia defense. Achieves enough success and forces the Bulldogs to keep more than they need to do so far this season. This is not going to happen. Alabama’s defense is not as bad as it was last week and makes life miserable for Bennett. Select: Alabama (-5)
