With a trip to the College Football Playoff on the line, the SEC championship game between the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide lived up to its lofty expectations — until the second half.
Nick Saban and the Tide pulled off the upset and continued their dominance over the Bulldogs with a 41-24 victory on Saturday. This made it seven straight wins for Bama against Georgia. Quarterback Bryce Young led the way with another Heisman-worthy performance, throwing for 421 yards and scoring four total touchdowns (three passing, one rushing).
This Alabama SEC championship victory will lead to a change atop the College Football Playoff rankings. Are the Tide deserving of the top spot in the postseason bracket after beating the No. 1 team in the country? Where does Georgia fall after a dominating season but one loss on its résumé? The committee will have answers to these questions by Sunday afternoon.
In the meantime, plenty of notable stars took to social media to comment on Bama’s convincing win.
The Tide changed their profile picture on Twitter after the game to reflect their back-to-back SEC titles.
The defeat is a sour end to the Bulldogs’ impressive regular season, but the team looks forward to Sunday, when it hopes to make the College Football Playoffs despite the loss.
