In a highly anticipated SEC Championship clash, the Georgia Bulldogs faced off against the Alabama Crimson Tide in a nail-biter that lived up to the hype. The final score saw Georgia emerging victorious with a narrow 27-24 win over their formidable opponent.
This showdown marked a rematch from the 2021 SEC Championship game, where Alabama triumphed 41-24. However, Georgia turned the tables in the CFP National Championship, securing a 33-18 win. The Bulldogs’ victory in the title game ended a seven-game head-to-head losing streak against Alabama.
While Georgia entered the game with a perfect overall record, they faced challenges against the spread this season, with a 4-7-1 record. Alabama, with an 8-4 ATS record, showcased their prowess in conference action. The Tide’s offensive strength was evident, ranking third nationally with a 9-2-1 over/under record.
