Pregame notes on Alabama for SEC Championship matchup with Georgia

All the talking has ended. 

Alabama and Georgia are about to give college football a classic SEC Championship matchup from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs want a clear path to the College Football Playoff National Championship, but Alabama is the obstacle.

Saban is pursuing the eighth SEC Championship of his coaching tenure for the Crimson Tide. 

A victory for the Tide punches its ticket into the CFP. Alabama is trying to win back-to-back national titles since 2011-12.

Before an epic game against the Bulldogs, pregame notes on the Tide are below. 

-Alabama running back Brian Robinson is a game-time decision. The senior sustained a pulled lower body muscle (hamstring) versus Auburn. He has practiced all week, but Saban does not know how much the 1,000-yard rusher (1,016) can do against the Bulldogs. 

-Robinson is sporting a sleeve on his left leg. It does not seem to be bothering him.
