Alabama favored over Georgia for CFP title

The Crimson Tide reached their third straight title game with a 24-6 win over Clemson in the Allstate Sugar Bowl and will be looking for their fifth national championship in the past nine seasons when they face SEC foe Georgia on January 8 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The College Football Playoff national championship is set for Monday, Jan. 8 in Atlanta. The last time the Crimson Tide were an underdog was at Georgia on October 3, 2015, the teams' last meeting.

The Sugar Bowl is the true main event of the New Year's Day bowl schedule.

Coach Dabo Swinney's Tigers may not have Heisman victor Deshaun Watson under center this time, but the team is stacked with NFL-caliber talent. Alabama won 45-40 in 2016, Clemson bested the Tide 35-31 in the final seconds in 2017.

"We've only done that twice in the past with teams, but three times in a row is a very special, kind of a one-time thing".

Meanwhile, No. 4 Alabama was leading No. 1 Clemson 24-6 with 12 minutes left in Monday night's Sugar Bowl.
