MOBILE, Ala. — Alabama center Ross Pierschbacher says the Crimson Tide players don’t bother looking at the scoreboard when they play Georgia
It’s become the type of game where both teams simply leave it all out on the field.
Pierschbacher will be snapping for the South team in the Senior Bowl in the 2:30 p.m. game on Saturday (TV: NFL Network) at Ladd Peebles Stadium.
The Bulldogs were tied or led Alabama for 281 of the 290 snaps in the past two games.
In terms of time, it was 118 minutes and 54 seconds of the 120 minutes of regulation play between the CFP Championship Game in January of 2019 and again in the SEC Championship Game last December.
After being asked what went wrong against Clemson, ,the Alabama center addressed the Georgia rivalry when asked by DawgNation about the past two games.
“Just a 15-round fight, we knew there would be some big punches thrown, but whoever could keep standing and land the last punch was going to win,” Pierschbacher said. “Regardless of what happened in the game, don’t look at the scoreboard and keep playing.”
Alabama coach Nick Saban said after the SEC Championship Game, a 35-28 come-from-behind win for the Tide “I sure as hell don’t want to play them again.”
Pierschbacher was noncommittal when asked about the CFP selection process this season.
