Saturday night was the best opportunity for the Georgia Bulldogs to take down Nick Saban’s Alabama football team.

In a bizarre season for college football, the Alabama football program had its worst week, while preparing to play Georgia. Nick Saban had to coach from home for three days. Until late morning on Saturday, it was not known if he could participate in the game.

The Georgia Bulldogs brought the nation’s best defense to Tuscaloosa. The Alabama football defense was reeling from a Lane Kiffin, offensive bombardment just days before.
