The 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship is taking its place in the national spotlight in Indianapolis Monday night with No. 1 Alabama battling No. 3 Georgia. It’s the second meeting between the two teams in over a month, with Alabama earning the SEC title over Georgia on Dec. 4 in a 41-24 win. Both the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs blew through their respective CFP semifinal matchups against No. 4 Cincinnati and No. 2 Michigan, setting up a battle of titans at Lucas Oils Stadium.
Georgia spent most of the year as the top-ranked team in college football, finishing the regular season as the lone undefeated Power Five team. However, the Bulldogs lost by three scores against Alabama in the 2021 SEC Championship Game, dropping to the No. 3 seed in the CFP.
Alabama became the first No. 1 to lose to an unranked opponent since 2008 after dropping a 41-38 stunner to Texas A&M in October. The Tide also showed vulnerability in close wins over Arkansas, LSU, Florida and Auburn, beating the four by a combined 17 points. But since the postseason started, Bama has looked like a death machine with wins over Georgia and Cincinnati by a combined 38 points. Quarterback Bryce Young threw for more than 400 yards against the Dawgs in Atlanta as a rubber stamp to his Heisman Trophy-winning season.
CBS Sports will be with you Monday night with live coverage of Alabama vs. Georgia for the national championship. Follow along for score updates, analysis and highlights from the CFP National Championship.
