Alabama hasn't been an underdog since the 2009 college football season, when it faced - and defeated - the No. 1 Florida Gators in the SEC Championship. If you're counting, that's 72 games ago. But that streak could come to an end this weekend as the Crimson Tide head to Athens to take on Georgia.
On Sunday, the Bulldogs opened as a 1-point favorite over the Tide, according to Tuscaloosa News' Cecil Hurt.

Georgia has been on a roll as of late behind the arm of red-hot quarterback Greyson Lambert, so it's no surprise the Dawgs are threatening to end Alabama's streak. These teams are scheduled to kick things off next Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on CBS.
