How to Watch the CFP National Championship Game Online Without Cable

On Monday night, Alabama and Georgia will meet in the College Football Playoff Championship Game to determine this year's national champion. So then, what time does the college football National Championship Game start? Since 2009, Alabama has made the national title game twice as often as it has missed it and is 4-1 in National Championship games. Obviously, Alabama does not win them all, but the Tide's problem this year has been more health than anything. He is a huge reason the Bulldogs are in this game in the first place, as he rushed for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns on 14 carries in Georgia's wild semifinal win over Oklahoma on New Year's Day. Clemson got swallowed by Alabama's defense because there was zero threat of Tiger QB Kelly Bryant passing the football for anything beyond a dump pass. Georgia has to have the THREAT of their whole playbook available, and the key to that rests in the legs of Chubb and Michel. The BCS system gave too much control to the computers, and a team like the 2017 Crimson Tide might not have had the chance to prove itself the way it has.

We have a pretty good idea what to expect-two run-heavy squads with playmakers abound on defense. What separates these two teams? Not that it was ever broken, but this unit simply wasn't up to Nick Saban's own standards this season.

Get ready college football fans. Last season, in a rematch between two teams, the Crimson Tide lost in the final seconds 35-31. Also, I don't know what it is about coaching against his former assistants, but Nick Saban is 11-0 in those games. Smart's departure was not easy on Saban or Alabama, and now in just his second season leading the Bulldogs, Smart has the unenviable task of not only trying to win the school's first title in almost 40 years, but also trying to knock off his mentor, who just happens to be the greatest modern-day coach in the NCAA. He is not only the best linebackers in the nation, but he is also one of the best overall defenders in the nation. Who else do you think stoked that underdog mentality to fire up the Crimson Tide?

Running backs Damien Harris (983 yards, 11 touchdowns, 7.6 yards per rush) and Bo Scarborough (573 yards, 8 scores, 4.8 yards per carry) run behind a line that features All-SEC performers Jonah Williams and Bradley Bozeman, while quarterback Jalen Hurts is also a threat to run.

Georgia's quarterback is true freshman quarterback, Jake Fromm. No matter how well Georgia runs the football, Fromm will nearly certainly be faced with more long yardages to gain on third down than he saw against Oklahoma. Will he be able to handle the swarming Tide defense that forced two costly Clemson turnovers, including a pick-six that sealed the game?

They offer a SEVEN DAY FREE TRIAL if you'd like to try it out. If you're sick of the SEC, it will feel like you're tied to your chair and being tortured with a propaganda video.

For the third straight season, Alabama was powered by a dominant defense and efficient offense, the latter of which probably deserves more credit than it receives. You can also join us on our Facebook Page.
