We follow the most important marks left by the actions of the game between Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide
The Bulldogs start as favorites despite being easily outmatched by the Crimson tide in the first crash of the year. Nick Saban’s dominance over his former coordinators is well documented as he has only lost once and that was precisely this year in the only loss Alabama has in the 2021 season when they fell to Texas A&M (41-38).
The prestigious program that Saban commands arrives as the N ° 1 in the nationA position that was held by Georgia, his rival tonight, for much of the season and he was marching perfectly until he ran into the Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game.
It is the second time this season Georgia has failed to get a first-and-ten in its first series (the other was against Auburn).
Alabama has scored first in four of its six CFP championships (it won two of the previous three, including last season).
In the first seven years of the Collge Football Playoff, the team to score first, the team to score first in the National Championship game is 3-4; the four teams that lost squandered double-digit leads.
