It’s finally here. The College Football Playoff National Championship, folks. Monday evening in Indianapolis, the Georgia Bulldogs face off against the Alabama Crimson Tide for college football supremacy. It’s an SEC championship rematch between two of the country’s best coaches in Kirby Smart and Nick Saban. For Georgia, they steamrolled the Michigan Wolverines in the semifinal game to reach Indy. For Alabama, they steamrolled the Cincinnati Bearcats in their semifinal game to reach Indy. There is no question or debate as to whether or not the Dawgs and the Tide are the two best teams in the country. The question is will Georgia be able to end Alabama’s seven-game win streak versus Georgia Monday evening.

So how can you tune into the battle between Stetson Bennett and Bryce Young? Well, there are a couple of different ways in which you can ensure you do just that. For starters, the game kicks off at 8:00 P.M. EST from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy, the home of the Colts.

The game will be on ESPN. Another option is the SEC Network, which will present a very different broadcast and one that all Georgia fans may want to know about. Yes, the voice of the Dawgs Scott Howard will be calling this one on the network if folks would like to tune in that way.

National Championship Preview

A lot of experts and analysts in college football are split as to how this rematch will unfold Monday evening. The rise and story of Stetson Bennett, Georgia’s walk-on quarterback, is a marvelous one and if he pulls this off on Monday evening versus the Heisman winner in Young it will be one of the all-time stories in sports. You can’t forget about Bennett revealing that he has a flip phone to block out all the noise and ensure he is ready to go each week of the season.

Georgia Nolan Smith told Heather Dinich of ESPN, “We say all the time here the best rush is the best coverage, and we’ve got to get to the quarterback. There’s nothing else about it. Last game, we did not do that. And I know a lot of people felt hurt after that one. I hold myself and my room accountable and also the D-line. It’s our job as pass-rushers to get after the quarterback and we didn’t do that. The difference between this game and that game is we just have to do it. We have to find a way.”

It was a different situation in the SEC title game. It did not go the way Georgia and its fans expected, but Smith and the group seem ready to put that behind them and move forward in this one on Monday night.
