If this national championship looks a little familiar to you, well, then you probably live in the Southeast.
The 2017 national title game (Monday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN) is an all-SEC affair between No. 3 Georgia and No. 4 Alabama. It’s a clash of teams with similar styles, similar coaches and players who come from similar places. For all intents and purposes, this is a second SEC title game with just a bit more at stake.
“Each time I play an SEC game, I know what type of game I’m going to get,” said Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans. “It’s going to be a physical game. I’m going to go against great athletes. It’s going to be a great challenge.”
