Here are their picks

A survey of some sports writers got the following picks of winners and scores.

Eric Blum, Columbia Daily Tribune
Georgia 24, Alabama 20

By far the best two teams in college football this year square off again, and the Crimson Tide will prove just how hard it is to beat a team of the Bulldogs' quality twice in less than six weeks. A late interception from Lewis Cine seals the championship for UGA.


quote:

Jon Hale, Louisville Courier Journal
Georgia 27, Alabama 24

It seems silly to pick against Alabama given the result of the SEC Championship Game, but I'll buy into the "wakeup call" narrative for Georgia. Georgia's defense is just too good to post that kind of performance again


quote:

Bennett Durando, Montgomery Advertiser
Georgia 20, Alabama 16

Brain says Georgia. Gut says Alabama. It's starting to feel as though Nick Saban will simply never lose to Kirby Smart. But Georgia's defense will play better this time. Red-zone stops will be the difference. Alabama is missing a key weapon in John Metchie III, and its offensive line prowess last time against the Bulldog front might have been an outlier..


quote:

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger
Georgia 27, Alabama 23

The two best teams in the country get to learn from their mistakes and build on their game plans from a matchup they've already played. Either team can come out on top, but this time expect Georgia to have the slightest edge. If the Bulldogs can play more aggressively on defense and not be behind the sticks so much on offense, they should be able to control the pace and win that elusive championship they've been chasing since 1980.


quote:

Marc Weiszer, Athens Banner Herald
Georgia 34, Alabama 31

Georgia's trucking of Michigan was similar to the one-sided nature of its regular-season march to the SEC Championship Game. Alabama humbled Georgia, but a team on a mission and a defense that's been special should get more pressure on Bryce Young and avoid as many busts as the first meeting. John Metchie's absence will be felt, and the Bulldogs will come up with more big plays of their own on offense.

I wonder how many of these same people picked Georgia in a blowout win the last time.

My God, would you look at the bulletin board material. You can bet Saban will be posting this shite for his team to see.

They would have that in common with pretty much every Bama fan I read on here prior to the SEC title game.

We had a lot of fans that thought we were going to lose. Those same fans refuse to say we are going to win now. Most of them don’t trust Golding.

I thought Georgia would win the first one so I'll abstain from this one.

Thank you for trying to help me feel better. But UGA is just a beast. Bama will lose by 24 points at minimum and Uncle Lou will cry tears of joy at our demise

There is one factor I haven't seen mentioned. It might or might not matter, but Bill O'Brien has had to scheme against teams that he faced twice in a season all during his NFL career. He's familiar with the process of making adjustments between those matchups.
