Alabama vs. Georgia 2018: Time, TV channel for College Football Playoff National Championship Game
CFP NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP 2018 LIVE STREAM
Location: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta
Streaming: Watch ESPN
Odds: Alabama is favored by 4.5 points
There are several qualifications a team must achieve before advancing to a prestigious spot in the College Football Playoff National Championship. But none is more important than the vital step taken by the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs early in the season: beating the tar out of Vanderbilt.
The two rivals meet on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN.
2018’s all-SEC finale features two teams that put a Nashville whoopin’ on the conference’s only private school in the first half of the season. That set the tone for a typically prolific season for the Crimson Tide and a rarer chance to make history for the Bulldogs. Alabama is working towards its fourth national championship in seven years, while Georgia is in search of its first football title since 1980.
Alabama vs. Georgia 2018: Start Time, Live Stream For College Football National Championship
Alabama and Georgia face off Monday night at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the 2018 College Football National Championship Game. It’s the first time in six years that two teams from the same conference will decide the national title.
The game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. EST. ESPN will have the contest on TV and a live stream will be available online with WatchESPN. The latest betting odds have the Crimson Tide favored by 3.5 points, per OddsShark, and the over/under is 52.5.
This is the third straight year that Alabama has reached the CFP National Championship Game. They defeated Clemson in 2016 and lost a rematch last season. The Crimson Tide easily defeated the Tigers in a third matchup on New Year’s Day in the CFP semifinals.
This is Georgia’s first time in the College Football Playoffs, and they never reached a BCS National Championship Game. The Bulldogs last won the title in the 1980 season when they went undefeated and beat Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl.
Even though both teams are in the SEC, they didn’t meet prior to bowl season. Georgia finished atop the SEC East with only one loss, and they avenged that loss by blowing out Auburn in the SEC Championship Game. Alabama was undefeated until the final game of the regular season, and a road loss to Auburn kept them from reaching the conference title game.
