Paul Finebaum Thinks Georgia Is A "Legitimate Threat" To Alabama

The ESPN college football analyst thinks the Bulldogs are a "legitimate threat" to the Crimson Tide.

Alabama has pretty much dominated every SEC team that's been put in front of it lately, winning 18 straight games against conference opponents by an average of 23 points.

Can anyone take down the Crimson Tide this season?

Mississippi State was viewed by some as the toughest opponent left on the schedule, but that's changed after what happened on Saturday.

Georgia dominated Mississippi State this weekend and Paul Finebaum thinks the Bulldogs are a "legitimate threat" to Nick Saban's team.

"Everyone said Mississippi State’s the No. 2 team in the SEC after last week and I said hold on a minute," Finebaum said on ESPN Sunday, per 247Sports. "It’s clear — Georgia is the legitimate threat to Alabama. I love Georgia."

Georgia isn't slated to play Alabama during the regular season, so this matchup would have to come in the SEC Championship Game. It looks like that's going to happen, though.
