The Georgia Bulldogs look to remain unbeaten and pick up their third SEC victory. Greyson Lambert is completing 76.5 percent of his passes for 733 yards, seven touchdowns and zero interceptions. Lambert has five touchdown passes in his last two games. Malcolm Mitchell and Sony Michel have combined for 454 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Isaiah McKenzie has five receptions. The Georgia Bulldogs ground game is averaging 257.7 yards per contest, and Nick Chubb leads the way with 599 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia is allowing 13.5 points and 273.3 yards per game. Leonard Floyd leads the Bulldogs with 23 tackles, Jordan Jenkins has three sacks and Dominick Sanders has two interceptions. Davin Bellamy is questionable.
The Crimson Tide are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games in October and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 games following a S.U. win. The Crimson Tide are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
Alabama continues to struggle on the offensive side of the ball, and I'm not sure that changes when the Tide go on the road for the first time this season. Georgia is balanced, at home and actually has a quarterback who can make plays as well.
The Georgia Bulldogs beat the Alabama Crimson Tide for the first time since 2007.
