Georgia is the first team to play a national championship game in its home state since LSU in 2012 Alabama-LSU in 2012 was last time two teams from the same conference played for the national title. Alabama and Georgia haven't met since 2015 (a Crimson Tide win in Athens). The last time these teams played in Atlanta was the 2012 SEC title game. (Another Alabama win.) From 2004 to 2015, Kirby Smart spent every season but one as a member of Nick Saban's coaching staff.
