Alabama’s offense was too much for Georgia’s defense.
Mac Jones passed for 417 yards and four touchdowns, and the No. 2 Crimson Tide’s aerial assault picked apart No. 3 Georgia’s heralded defense in the second half of a 41-24 victory.
Alabama, with coach Nick Saban stalking the sideline after a COVID-19 scare, rallied with three touchdowns in a 10-minute span starting late in the third quarter of a battle of the Southeastern Conference’s last remaining unbeatens.
The nation’s top scoring offense ultimately got the decisive upper hand in a battle with the Bulldogs and one of the nation’s best defenses.
Georgia had no answer for Jones and star receivers Jaylen Waddle and DeVonta Smith, especially with Alabama’s own beleaguered defense grabbing two second-half interceptions and three overall.
