    Just a few days away from their showdown between the hedges against Alabama, the Georgia Bulldogs will have an offensive and special teams threat in-game following an incident earlier this week.

(WTVM) - It's the biggest of the SEC games of the season to date - the pre-season pick to win the East versus the preseason pick to win the West.

Two teams with national title dreams will go head to head: 8th ranked Georgia undefeated and still a player, and 13th ranked Alabama with one loss already hanging on by a thread. With 600 credentials issued for this one it will be packed.

UGA's big gun is running back Nick Chubb and the sophomore has been racking up record numbers which include 12 straight 100 yard rushing games.

The Dawgs have been effective through the air but the ground game is their bread and butter.

Alabama is also a run-oriented team as their passing attack led by quarterback Jake Coker has decent numbers, but when push comes to shove it's Derrick Henry carrying the mail.

Given the numbers this game shouldn't be affected too much.
