No. 8 Alabama beats No. 1 Georgia for SEC title to snap Bulldogs' 29-game win streak and create playoff chaos

College Football Playoff chaos is here.

No. 8 Alabama beat No. 1 Georgia 27-24 in the SEC championship game on Saturday to break Georgia’s 29-game win streak and put Georgia’s chances of winning a third straight title in serious peril.

The Crimson Tide’s win means that at least three teams with one loss or fewer will miss the College Football Playoff. Four teams entered conference championship weekend undefeated while another four had one loss. Georgia (12-1) became the first unbeaten team to lose over the weekend with two more still to play and only one one-loss team (Oregon) will suffer a second loss this weekend.
