The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Yes, the 2021 College Football Playoff featured two first-time teams in No. 2 Michigan and No. 4 Cincinnati. But, once again, the national championship will be decided between No. 1 Alabama — making its sixth all-time appearance in the CFP championship game — and Georgia, making its second such appearance. These teams also met for the 2017 national championship.
This meeting — a rematch of the 2021 SEC championship game — also represents the third time since 2011 that two SEC teams will determine the national championship. Alabama (surprise) beat top-ranked LSU in a rematch of the regular season to claim that championship that season.

Who will win on Monday? Conventional wisdom says it's hard to beat a team twice in one season — Alabama beat Georgia 41-24 — which would seem to favor Georgia.

Plus, the Crimson Tide have been here before.
Georgia, meanwhile, is looking for its first championship since the 1980 season — an abysmally long 41-year stretch for one of college football's premier programs. The Bulldogs will look to quarterback Stetson Bennett and its vaunted defense to deliver them back to the promised land.
