No. 1 Georgia and No. 8 Alabama are playing, again, for the SEC championship at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Each enters the game undefeated in SEC games, and Georgia is riding a 29-game win streak. The Bulldogs have won 45 of their past 46 games.
Each team has a lot to play for beyond winning the SEC championship. With a victory, Georgia likely would enter the College Football Playoff as the No. 1 seed. With a loss, the Bulldogs will hope to make the four-team field as a one-loss team. With a loss, Bama would lose its chance at a spot in the playoff, though a victory would leave them having to hope that the selection committee looks favorably upon the Crimson Tide.
