The Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide will meet in Atlanta this weekend in the SEC Championship from Mercedes-Benz Stadium on CBS. The Alabama/Georgia rivalry has grown reserved for the SEC Championship, but it’s also one of the conference's oldest rivalries. Five of the last seven meetings have taken place after Week 13, and Alabama leads the all-time series 42-26-4, but Georgia did snap a seven-game skid with a victory in the National Championship back in 2022. Here is our Georgia vs Alabama prediction.

Georgia Bulldogs Preview

Georgia comes in at 12-0 after defeating Georgia Tech in Atlanta, 31-23. The Bulldogs avoided disaster by pulling away from the Yellow Jackets in the second half, and they’ll look to complete the regular season unblemished here against Bama. The UGA offense is scoring 31.9 ppg, while passing for 219.4 ypg, rushing for 140.9  ypg, and converting 39% of their third downs.

Georgia Player Notes

Carson Beck quarterbacked the Dawgs to another victory last weekend against GT, passing for 175 yards and a score. The Jacksonville native finished with a season-low in air yardage versus Tech, but he’s been impressive down the stretch, as he tossed multiple scores in five of six games prior to Rivalry Week. Beck has passed for 3,495 yards with 22 touchdowns to six interceptions thru 12 starts.

• Senior back Daijun Edwards has scored in four of the previous six games, and he leads the Bulldogs in rushing yards (780), with 11 touchdowns.

• Fresno native Kendall Milton went for a season-high 156 yards and two scores in the win over Georgia Tech, and he’s rushed for 644 yards on 99 carries, with ten touchdowns this season.

• Junior tight end Brock Bowers has caught a touchdown pass in five of the last six games, and he leads UGA in receptions (51) and receiving yards (661).

• The Georgia defense has allowed 15.7 points per game.

Alabama Player Notes

Jalen Milroe made the biggest throw of his life to take down Auburn last week, and he finished with 259 yards and a pair of scores. The sophomore QB has grown right before our eyes over the past two months, and he’ll look to deliver another special ending this weekend in Atlanta.

Corey’s Free Georgia vs Alabama Prediction

College football is at its best when the SEC title game holds national championship implications, and this year’s matchup falls right in line, as the winner of this contest will secure their place in the CFB Playoff. Georgia’s legitimacy was really in question prior to a three-week stretch of ranked action, and after struggling against Georgia Tech last weekend, it feels as if this squad is a step behind the previous two. Meanwhile, Alabama has hit a new gear down the stretch, if there’s ever a time to buy into Saint Nick’s stock, it’s now. This installment should be another classic that could see the defenses take the forefront, but trust the old guard to keep things close here, and potentially steal the upset. Spot Alabama the points for the SEC Championship on Saturday.
