ESPN’s Paul Finebaum coins the matchup between Alabama and Georgia as the ‘game of the year’ in 2024.

Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide will host the Bulldogs at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the first time since 2020. In the COVID-shortened season, Alabama earned a 41-24 victory over Georgia. Mac Jones had 417 passing yards and four touchdowns, Najee Harris totaled 152 yards rushing and a touchdown, and DeVonta Smith recorded 11 catches for 167 yards and two scores.

The Tide ran through a 10-game conference-only schedule and won a College Football Playoff National Championship.

Saban wants to show that he has not handed the scepter to Kirby Smart yet. The contest next season should be fun.
