But Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young may have the most pressure being that he was declared the winner of the most outstanding player of the season.

Young comes into the game having gone 332 of 491 for 4,503 yards. He has thrown 46 touchdown passes and five interceptions.

In the team’s beat-down win over the Bulldogs in the Southeastern Conference Championship game on December 4th, Young was dominant. He went 26 of 44 for 421 yards with three touchdowns in the team’s 41-24 win.

It was his second-best performance on the season thus far. He had a career-high 559 passing yards against the Arkansas Razorbacks on November 20th.

Bennett has not had to do a lot, as much as Young, to help his team to get to the final contest of the season. Regardless, he has gone 168 of 261 for 2,638 yards with 27 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

He has thrown consecutive 300-plus passing games. One of those passing games was a season-high 340 yards against the Crimson Tide in December.

Bennett had 313 passing yards against the Michigan Wolverines to get another chance at Alabama. The belief is that the Crimson Tide has the better quarterback in this game.
