Where is the College Football Playoff national championship game in 2022?

Only one game remains to determine the national champion of the 2021 college football season. Spoiler: It’ll be an SEC team.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia will get a rematch of the 2021 SEC championship in the 2022 College Football Playoff championship game in Lucas Oil Stadium. It is the first time in the history of the playoff era that two teams that played in the regular season will face off again for a chance at the national championship

That said, there is a history of teams rematching from the regular season with national title implications — just in the pre-playoff era. The most recent occurence of that is when No. 2 Alabama beat No. 1 LSU 21-0 in the 2012 BCS championship game after losing 9-6 in a 1-vs.-2 “Game of the Century.” Prior to that, Florida overcame a 24-21 loss to rival Florida State to upend the Seminoles 52-20 in the 1997 Sugar Bowl to win the championship.

Will Georgia follow that trend following its 41-24 loss to Alabama earlier in the year? Or will the Crimson Tide step up once again en route to coach Nick Saban’s seventh title at Alabama (and eighth overall)?

National championship 2022: How to watch Alabama vs. Georgia online, live stream free, channel, kickoff time
Alabama eyes back-to-back titles, while Georgia is looking for its first crown since 1980

The 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship takes center stage Monday night with No. 1 Alabama battling No. 3 Georgia in Indianapolis. It’s the second meeting between the two teams in over a month, with Alabama earning the SEC title over Georgia on Dec. 4 in a 41-24 win. Both the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs blew through their respective CFP semifinal matchups against No. 4 Cincinnati and No. 2 Michigan, setting up a battle of titans at Lucas Oils Stadium.

Watch National Championship 2022 Live

Georgia spent most of the year as the top-ranked team in college football, finishing the regular season as the lone undefeated Power Five team. However, the Bulldogs lost by three scores against Alabama in the 2021 SEC Championship Game, dropping to the No. 3 seed in the CFP. 

Alabama became the first No. 1 to lose to an unranked opponent since 2008 after dropping a 41-38 stunner to Texas A&M in October. The Tide also showed vulnerability in close wins over Arkansas, LSU, Florida and Auburn, beating the four by a combined 17 points. But since the postseason started, Bama has looked like a death machine with wins over Georgia and Cincinnati by a combined 38 points. Quarterback Bryce Young threw for more than 400 yards against the Dawgs in Atlanta as a rubber stamp to his Heisman Trophy-winning season.

Alabama vs. Georgia storylines

Alabama: The Crimson Tide are the most dominant dynasty in college football history, but coach Nick Saban is searching for his first back-to-back titles since 2012. This iteration of the Tide can accomplish that feat despite replacing 10 players to the NFL Draft, including tying Miami’s record with six first round picks. 

Young became the first Alabama signal-caller to win the Heisman, later breaking program records for yards passing and passing touchdowns in the semifinal win over Cincinnati. He sits with 4,503 yards passing, 46 touchdowns and five interceptions entering Monday’s game. Linebacker Will Anderson Jr. set a program record with 34.5 tackles for loss and added 17.5 sacks with nine quarterback hurries. 

While the Tide have been lights-out since the end of the regular season, they head into the final game with receptions leader John Metchie III out of the lineup with a torn ACL. Top cornerback Josh Jobe will also miss the final game, as will offensive guard Emil Ekiyor. The Crimson Tide’s depth will be put to the test against perhaps the only team in the nation that can match them talent-wise.

CFP National Championship

What channel is Alabama vs. Georgia on tonight? Time, TV schedule for 2022 college football championship

The college football universe will once again center around the SEC to end the 2021 season — even if the national championship game is in Indianapolis.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia will face off in the 2022 College Football Playoff national championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium, marking the first CFP rematch of a regular-season game since the playoff was implemented in 2014. It is also the second time the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs will decide the national title following the 2018 championship game, which Alabama won 26-23 in overtime.

Watch National Championship 2022 Live

Only Alabama and Clemson have met more times in the CFP era, facing off every season from 2015 through 2018. The 2017 matchup was the only meeting that did not take place in the national championship game.

MORE: Watch Alabama vs. Georgia live with fuboTV (free trial)

Alabama enters the game as a slight underdog to the Bulldogs, despite handing them their first loss of the season in a shocking 41-24 victory in the SEC championship game. The Crimson Tide had to win that game just to make the College Football Playoff, whereas undefeated Georgia was guaranteed a spot regardless of whether it won or lost.

That win vaulted Nick Saban and Alabama to the top overall seed in the 2021 College Football Playoff, where they took No. 4 Cincinnati’s best shot in the Cotton Bowl semifinal and still won 27-6. Georgia, which fell to No. 3, rebounded for a dominant win over No. 2 Michigan, upending the Wolverines 34-11. Those games, coupled with some injuries on Alabama’s roster — most notably 1,000-yard receiver John Metchie III — suggest a closer game in the rematch.

With that, here’s everything you need to watch Alabama vs. Georgia in the College Football Playoff championship game, including TV channel, kickoff time, location and updated betting odds.

This college football season was a wild journey with its share of ups and downs — even for the top teams in the country — but now the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship features a pair of familiar foes. No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia will square off Monday night in Indianapolis for the national title, just over five weeks after they played in the 2021 SEC Championship Game.

How To Watch National Championship 2022 Live

That impressive showing for the Bulldogs was enough to make them a slight favorite over Alabama for the CFP National Championship, despite the outcome of the SEC Championship Game. If Georgia can pull off the victory, it would mark the program’s first national title since 1980. Beating Alabama to reach that milestone would make the achievement even more significant since sixth-year UGA coach Kirby Smart is 0-4 against the Crimson Tide since taking over the Bulldogs program.

Smart was Alabama’s defensive coordinator for the program’s first four national championships under coach Nick Saban, who has tallied six national championships with the Crimson Tide since taking the job in 2007. This is a familiar position for Saban, whose 2017 team came from behind to beat Georgia in the 2018 CFP National Championship.

Alabama vs. Georgia storylines

Alabama: Alabama established the tone against Cincinnati with some bully ball on its opening possession, running on 10 straight plays before going to the air for the game’s first touchdown. For a team that did not have an elite rushing attack for much of the season, it was quite a statement. Alabama totaled 301 yards rushing in the game, and if it can bring some of the momentum generated on the ground into this game, it’ll do wonders.

Alabama used an all-out aerial assault to win the SEC title over Georgia, but leading receiver John Metchie III was lost to a knee injury in that game. Expect the Bulldogs to adjust and make life harder on Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Bryce Young and his top target, Jameson Williams. Crimson Tide running backs Brian Robinson Jr. and Trey Sanders totaled just 76 yards rushing on 22 carries in the first meeting. If Alabama can bring the multi-dimensional prowess it showed against the Bearcats to this matchup, it’ll have a chance to neutralize Georgia’s defense yet again.

National championship 2022: Five keys to Alabama beating Georgia and winning the College Football Playoff
What the Crimson Tide must do to successfully defend their national title against a well-known opponent

Watch National Championship 2022 Live

Alabama is one win away from claiming its seventh title of the Nick Saban era while winning  back-to-back national championships for the first time since the 2011-12 seasons. Still, the No. 1 Crimson Tide find themselves as underdogs heading into the College Football Playoff National Championship against No. 3 Georgia, which they defeated 41-24 on Dec. 4 in the SEC Championship Game. 

So why are Saban (the greatest coach of all time) and Alabama (the nation’s top-ranked team) entering Monday’s title tilt as underdogs? One reason: Georgia was the best team in the country on a week-in, week-out basis throughout the regular season. After the Orange Bowl semifinal thrashing of No. 2 Michigan, many believe the loss to Alabama in Atlanta was an anomaly in an otherwise championship-caliber season.

Keys for CFP National Championship: How Alabama beats Georgia | How Georgia beats Alabama

The Tide may have won the first meeting handily thanks to a 24-point explosion in the second quarter, but the Bulldogs are likely not going to be dispatched as easily in the rematch. So what will it take for Alabama to beat this talented and dominant Georgia team twice in 37 days? Let’s get into the keys to the game for the Crimson Tide. 

Keys for Georgia: How the Bulldogs can defeat Alabama for the CFP title

1. Keep Bryce Young’s jersey clean

OK, this is highly unlikely to be met as a goal, but it functions as a key focus for the rematch after what occurred in the SEC title game. Georgia has one of the most dangerous defensive fronts in the entire country, but for all of their efforts to overwhelm Tide offensive line, the Dawgs did not register a single sack against quarterback Bryce Young. Alabama’s offensive line was identified as a potential liability heading into that game, but with a good game plan to get the ball out of Young’s hands quickly, it silenced doubters. That same group has some injury issues now, and it will have its depth tested given Georgia’s coaching staff now has a better idea of how to defend Young after having already faced the Heisman Trophy winner. 

2. Stay on schedule offensively

This builds on keeping Georgia sack-less, expanding the focus to the run game and avoiding bad penalties. The worst place for Young to be is third-and-long, so it’s important to carry over the confidence from running back Brian Robinson Jr.’s 200-yard game against No. 4 Cincinnati in the Cotton Bowl semifinal to get some good push on the ground. After getting the run game going, it’s going to be important to avoid negative plays — not just sacks, but the holding penalties that can come from trying to keep Georgia’s elite defense at bay — to enhance the offense’s success rate. Young can do a lot to evade pressure with his escapability, but his job is going to be much easier if he’s not frequently faced with obvious pass-rush situations.  

3. Young receivers must step up

The absence of John Metchie III has been considered the most significant difference in the matchup between these two teams since they met on Dec. 4, and not having him in the lineup is a significant loss for Alabama. But while missing Metchie’s experience and production is certainly a key piece in handicapping, so is considering who is up next for those targets and receptions if they can answer the call. 

How To Watch National championship 2022 Live Online

Freshman Ja’Corey Brooks started the Cotton Bowl in Metchie’s absence, but he’s far from the only underclassmen option for potential game-breakers in Alabama’s receiver room.
