8 plays, 26 yards, 3:48

Alabama kicker Will Reichard passed the FBS record for most career points scored (533) with a 42-yard field goal.

Georgia’s defense has been uncharacteristically stifling to start the first quarter. The same Bulldogs that allowed five first-drive touchdowns in the last six games have allowed 30 total yards through Alabama’s first three drives.

Georgia 7, Alabama 0, 9:31

8 plays, 83 yards, 3:50

Kendall Milton’s 17-yard touchdown run sent the red and black half of Sanford Stadium into frenzy as Georgia drew first blood. The Bulldogs’ passing attack looked unstoppable on the opening drive, as Carson Beck completed all four of his passing attempt for 61 yards.

2:40 PM Update: Brock Bowers and Ladd McConkey are both going through pregame warmups. Wide receiver Rara Thomas not spotted working out with the wide receiver.

Bowers did go through pregame warmups last week before ultimately not playing against Georgia Tech. Bowers left ankle was noticeably thicker due to the brace.

Georgia cornerback Julian Humphrey was not spotted with the Georgia cornerbacks during warmups.

A lot of eyes will be on the Georgia football injury situation. Tight end Brock Bowers, wide receivers Ladd McConkey and Rara Thomas and offensive lineman Tate Ratledge all missed last week’s game against Georgia Tech due to injury.

All four are expected to be available on Saturday, though to what level will be determined by how they do in pregame warmups.

“I’m trying to figure that out myself. I don’t have a lot more answers than I had on Monday,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said on Thursday. “They have not been able to do a lot. Each one has kind of worked independently. Tate has done some drill work, some 11-on-11 stuff. Brock has sprinkled in some of that.”

On the defensive side of the ball, Georgia is expected to be without inside linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson. Cornerback Julian Humphrey is considered doubtful for the game after he suffered a collarbone injury against Ole Miss.

For Alabama, running back Jase McClellan is not expected to play on Saturday. He is Alabama’s leading rusher this season and his absence will put an even bigger onus on Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe.

Neither team is a lock for the College Football Playoff, given the state of the sport. Both teams will need a win today to ensure their spot in the College Football Playoff. The final four teams will be announced on Sunday at 12 p.m. ET. Georgia has made the last two College Football Playoffs, as the Bulldogs have won back-to-back national championships.
