Alabama vs. Georgia live score, updates, highlights from the 2020 SEC rivalry game

No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia will face off in an early favorite for game of the year on Saturday.

Each of the last two meetings between the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs, the 2018 SEC championship and 2018 College Football Playoff national championship game, resulted in one-score wins for the Tide. Georgia coach Kirby Smart will look to earn his first win against the Tide since leaving Nick Saban’s program to coach Georgia in 2016. Saban, meanwhile, was cleared to coach Saturday after testing producing a positive coronavirus test on Wednesday (later deemed a false positive in accordance with SEC COVID-19 protocols).

Regardless, Saturday’s matchup will be a strength-vs.-strength matchup: Alabama boasts the No. 1 offense in the SEC behind quarterback Mac Jones, running back Najee Harris and receivers Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith and John Metchie III. But Georgia boasts the conference’s best defense, which allows only 12.3 points and 236.7 yards per game.

Conversely, will Alabama’s defense be able to make enough stops vs. Georgia’s offense? Or will the Tide defense pick it up after an eye-opening win over Ole Miss?
