National Championship 2022: Keys To Victory, Predictions, and our #LegendsOnly Virtual Lock for the College Football Playoff Championship Game

Jan 10th 2022

Kirby Smart's Georgia Bulldogs are looking for their first National Championship in over 40 years. Can they bring it home tonight in a rematch against Nick Saban's Alabama Crimson Tide?


Georgia Keys To Victory

1. Bring The Pressure

The Dawgs gave Bryce Young way too much time in the SEC Championship Game. If Georgia can get pressure on the QB, they'll force Young to escape the pocket and make bad decisions with the football.

2. Stetson Bennett

Georgia's offensive line needs to give Stetson Bennett the time to get comfortable in the pocket. Short screen passes and angle routes will help keep The Dawgs on schedule offensively and burn the clock.

3. Put The Cork in Jameson Williams

Williams will likely be Bryce Young's number one target. If Georgia's secondary can contain Williams, it will force Young to move through his progressions and throw into a better matchup for The Dawgs.


Alabama Keys To Victory

1. Protect The QB

The tide didn't surrender a single sack on Bryce Young in the SEC Championship Game. If Alabama can repeat that performance and give Young time, their offense will be rolling.

2. Run Your Offense

Alabama needs to keep Bryce Young out of his worst case scenario: Third and Long. If they can stay on schedule offensively, they will be able to get the run game going and force Georgia's defense to adjust.

3. Force Mistakes

If The Tide can keep the pressure on Stetson Bennett, they can win the turnover battle. That paired with Alabama's offensive fire-power will be more than enough to pull away in the second half.


Our Prediction: Alabama 31 - Georgia 27

Alabama's high-octane offense proves to be too much for Stetson Bennett and The Dawgs to keep up with. Alabama wins a close game and runs the clock out after a late Georgia turnover.
