There can only be one. 

On Monday night, the College Football Playoffs will be handing their national championship trophy to one of two SEC schools playing in Lucas Oil Stadium. 

The Alabama Crimson Tide, headlined by Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young, are searching for their fourth national title since the College Football Playoffs were formed in 2014. The Crimson Tide, boasting yet again incredible prospects on both side of the ball, have missed the playoffs just once in the eight years it's been running. 

On the other side, the Georgia Bulldogs (favored by -2.5 points on SI Sportsbook) look to prevent the Crimson Tide from becoming the first team to win the College Football Playoffs in back-to-back seasons. 

It's a rematch of the 2017 CFP National Championship, where Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa found receiver DeVonta Smith for a game-winning touchdown in overtime, the only College Football Playoff game to go past regulation. 

The Bulldogs, led by quarterback Stetson Bennett, also look to seek revenge after a loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game just over a month ago. 

With the stakes at an all-time high and each team fielding multiple future first-round picks, we're sure to see an entertaining game to decide which team will be bring home the SEC's third consecutive national championship.
