The model has considered how the Crimson Tide dominated the last meeting, putting up 536 yards against one of the nation’s top defenses. QB Bryce Young threw for 421 and three TDs, and WR Jameson Williams had 187 and two scores. Brian Robinson also is a threat on the ground, and he rushed for 198 yards in the semifinal against Cincinnati. The Bama defense revolves around pass rusher Will Anderson, who leads the nation with 17.5 sacks. The unit held Georgia to three-of-12 on third-down conversions in the last meeting.
The model also knows the two turnovers Georgia committed in the last meeting were out of character, and the Bulldogs score more than 39 points per game. QB Stetson Bennett threw for 340 yards in the SEC title game and 310 in the semifinal win against Michigan. The Bulldogs’ signature is defense, as the unit allows an FBS-low 9.5 points per game and ranks in the top five against the run and the pass, allowing 254.4 yards per contest. Nakobe Dean (six sacks) and Channing Tindall (4.5) lead a linebacking crew that sets the tone.
