COMMENTS

Alabama is one of the best hitting teams in the conference so far, statistically. Much more was expected from Georgia this season with a bevy of talent returning. There is still a long way to go in the season. This should a fairly evenly matched series but look for the Tide, with a home field advantage, to pull out a series win.

Series Prediction


Alabama 2 wins, Georgia 1 win
