ATLANTA, GA — No. 1 Alabama and No. 7 Florida are battling in the SEC Championship Game and you can watch live streaming coverage of the title game from Atlanta, GA. LISTEN to Live Stream and Watch CBS Sports Live from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Alabama Looking To Stay Perfect
The Crimson Tide (10-0, 10-0 SEC) are perfect this season from their 10 played games and coach Nick Saban, although being a bit cautious, believes his team has the firepower to extend the streak and win another conference championship.
Florida will be making its 13th appearance in the SEC Championship game, with Saturday’s matchup being the ninth clash against Alabama. The Gators trail 4-5 in those matchups and start as the underdogs against the Crimson Tide, who are the overwhelming favorites by 17 points.
Florida will be hoping to bounce back from the disappointing home loss to LSU last weekend, but the Gators are well aware that taking down the country’s No. 1 ranked side will be no easy task.
Heisman Trophy Candidates To Lead Tides
Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, running back Najee Harris, and receiver DeVonta Smith – all Heisman Trophy candidates – are three of the highlighted players Saban is expecting to make a difference on the offensive side.
They have covered seven straight games and have won six successive games by 28+ points and outscoring opponents 301-53. The Gators are 0-3-1 ATS in the last four games.
For Florida, quarterback Kyle Trask, who is among the candidates for the Heisman Trophy this year, is expected to make all the plays on offense although coach Dan Mullen will try to mix things up with a running game.
While the Gators will be looking for a big game from Trask, the Crimson Tide have a well-balanced team across the board and this could make life very challenging for the Sunshine State team.
Especially watch out for the Alabama defense, it is prime to frustrate Florida all night, as the team look to make a statement for the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings.
