The Alabama Crimson Tide will take on the Georgia Bulldogs in the College Football Playoff National Championship tonight at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Alabama and Georgia are both Nike-sponsored schools, and both compete in the Southeastern Conference. The Crimson Tide ended the season with a 12-1 record, and the Bulldogs finished 13-1.
Alabama is no stranger to the College Football Playoff National Championship game. Since college football switched to the four-team playoff format in the 2014 season, in the four championship games, the Crimson Tide have appeared three times.
The Bulldogs entered the College Football Playoff as the No. 3 overall seed, and the Crimson Tide was placed No. 4. Georgia topped the Oklahoma Sooners 54-48 in overtime on Jan. 1 to advance, and Alabama bested the Clemson Tigers 24-6 in a rematch of the last two championship games, also on Jan. 1.
The game will air live on ESPN and also can be watched online via espn.com/watch. Coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET. The network will also offer a “Megacast,” which will feature College Football Playoff National Championship-related coverage on its other platforms, including ESPNews, ESPN2, the SEC Network, ESPN Radio and ESPN Deportes.
