Deep South college football bragging rights at stake in Georgia-Alabama national championship
The Georgia Bulldogs play the Alabama Crimson Tide in the NCAA college football championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Monday at 8 p.m.
The game could result in Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s seventh national title at Alabama, or it could be the moment for Georgia coach Kirby Smart, once an assistant coach on Saban’s staff, to get a long-awaited win over his former boss.
GPB's Jon Nelson interviewed sports anchor Cody Chaffins and Claire Simms, WAGA-TV reporter, ahead of the game.
They discuss the vibe in Indianapolis, the unique coaching matchup between Nick Saban and Kirby Smart and how that carries over into the fandom and rivalry between these two teams.
