The biggest match on the college football list for 2020 kicks off Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, when I finish second Alabama Will host No. 3 Georgia In a rematch of the classic showdown of the 2018 College Football Championship and 2018 SEC Championship. A coaching match between teacher (Crimson coach Tide Nick Saban) and student (Bulldogs Kirby Smart coach) got a 12 to 6 curve ball Wednesday night when it was announced Saban tested positive for COVID-19. Although Saban missed training for the rest of the week, Three consecutive negative tests for COVID-19 He officially takes him back to the sideline at Bryant-Denny Stadium for a match against Georgia.
What is certain is that the match between the Alabama offensive line and the Georgia defensive front will be an equation of fixed object versus unstoppable force. On the other hand, the Alabama defense against a Georgia attack could turn into a pillow fight based on what we saw during the first three games of the season (especially for the Alabama defense).
Let’s break up the match and take a look at CBS Sports’ expert picks for SEC on the CBS Game of the Week as they are set to face Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs on Saturday night in their first match so far this season. Odds are via William Hill Sportsbook
Alabama: Quarterback Mac Jones The modern tradition of tag team makers to take shots of Crimson Tide has continued. Jones leads the nation in passing efficiency (rated 220.35) and yards per attempt (13.3). It also ranks second in the achievement percentage at 79.5. The real key in this game will be playing backwards Nagy Harris. The big player had 206 yards and five touchdowns last week versus the Ole Miss. He’ll have to create the race in order for Jones to find lover receivers Devonta Smith, Jaylyn Waddle And the John Michie III Deep in the earth.
Crimson Tide’s defense burned last week at 647 yards and 7.52 yards per attempt. This was against Lynn Kevin’s crime that used percussion to keep the defense in guesswork and did not allow Saban’s crew to prepare. That’s what Ole Miss does. This is not what Georgia does. Watch Crimson Tide’s defense – especially the defensive line – if they have time to prepare, and aren’t too confused by the surprise. You will go a long way towards winning this.
Georgia: Oh man, that defensive performance against Tennessee last week was legit. The Vols Offensive Line, which was (and still is) one of the best in the country, was lit up like a Christmas tree by the Bulldogs Defense. But don’t sleep in high school. They lead the SEC in pass defense with 198.3 yards permitted per game and 5.2 yards per attempt. It’s the best unit in the country – and runner-up not even soon.
The emergence of a wide receiver Keris Jackson It was a huge mid-back Stetson Bennett Fourth, the crime of the bulldog. He allowed his fellow wide receiver George Pickens To get more individual coverage, the highscore is kept on their toes so that Bennett has more impact in the running game. Speaking of the running game, Zamir White, Kendall Milton, Kenny Macintosh The remaining defenders have shown in three matches that they have the potential to be one of the most dynamic groups in the country.

Prediction game, picks
Give me a scarlet tide for victory and coverage. I don’t care that Saban had an odd week as he was not a coach and is now coaching the team. His philosophy, plan, plan, and coaching staff remain the same, which means all Alabama has to do is not mess things up. You won’t. Jones & Co. would be successful enough to reach 30 points against the Georgia defense and force the Bulldogs to keep up with more than they have had to do so far this season. It will not happen. Alabama’s defense isn’t as bad as it played last week and it will make Bennett’s life miserable. Picking: Alabama (-5)
