The No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs are set to take on the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide this weekend.
With Alabama’s head coach Nick Saban sidelined by COVID-19, 95.5 WSB—your home of the Dawgs—is following what this could mean for Saturday night’s game.
>>Friday morning, 95.5 WSB hosted a roundtable to dig in on tomorrow’s game. Listen to the FULL special below or on the WSB Radio App.
The highly anticipated match-up will be without Alabama head coach Nick Saban, as he tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. The entire Alabama team will be tested on Thursday to determine the spread of the virus. Saban is the first SEC head coach to come down with the disease, though the Alabama head coach assured reporters that he feels fine.
This will be Kirby Smart’s first trip back to Alabama since he was Alabama’s defensive coordinator, a role he served in from 2008 through the 2015 season. The Bulldogs have lost five consecutive games against the Crimson Tide.
This will be Georgia’s first time playing at Bryant-Denny Stadium since the 2007 season, which was Saban’s first season on the job.
