Once again, the Alabama-Georgia game followed a familiar script.

This year’s version spared Bulldogs fans from any last-minute heartache, G the end result—a 41–24 Crimson Tide victory—hit many of the same notes as the last two meetings between these teams.

For three straight matchups in this series, Georgia has held the lead after two quarters, only to watch it slip away in the second half. Georgia led, 21–14, at halftime of the 2018 SEC title game; the Bulldogs held a 13–0 lead at halftime during the 2017 national championship game. They lost both times in the game’s final moments.
