Could Georgia beat Alabama this year? Steve Spurrier weighs in
The Georgia Bulldogs have emerged as one of the top teams in the country this year and currently hold the No. 4 ranking in the AP Poll.
In Kirby Smart’s second year at the helm of the program, the Bulldogs are 6-0 and look like they will cruise to an SEC East title.
There’s still a long way to go before the conference championship game on Dec. 2, but if the Bulldogs advance to play No. 1 Alabama, the Crimson Tide will likely be favored.
But could the Bulldogs pull off an upset? Former Florida and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier shared his thoughts on that topic on “Full Ride” on SiriusXM on Tuesday (via 247Sports):
“Georgia has a very strong team, it appears right now, because their defense is so good,” Spurrier said. “I don’t think they have quite the size of Bama, but could they beat Bama? Oh yeah if they played extremely well and Bama doesn’t that day. But Alabama would be favored.”
Obviously, the Bulldogs and Crimson Tide both have a long way to go before either can start thinking of a conference championship game matchup, but it’s fun to talk about.
It’s about time the East had a truly elite team, and if the Bulldogs can make the title game competitive for the Crimson Tide, the SEC will be better off for it.
