ATLANTA — As Georgia and Alabama are set to face one another in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on Monday night, there are three Pennsylvanians on the team's rosters.
Of the three athletes, none of them are from the Central Pennsylvania area. However, both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh will be represented in tonight's game.
For the Crimson Tide, here's which players are from Pennsylvania on their roster:
Neither player has seen action yet for the Crimson Tide, as both Krieger and Hollenbach are apart of a deep roster at both the quarterback and receiver positions.
For example, Alabama's Jameson Williams and John Metchie III are widely expected to be among the top 10 receivers taken in the 2022 NFL Draft.
In 2023, current Crimson Tide starting quarterback Bryce Young could be a first round pick himself.
Meanwhile, there is one Pennsylvania native on the Bulldogs roster.:
- DB Tykee Smith # 23 Philadelphia, Pa.
Smith has only made one appearance for the Bulldogs, getting into action against #18 Auburn earlier this year.
In that game, Smith totaled three tackles.
Playing time may be hard to come by for Smith, as he is one of 21 listed defensive backs on the Bulldogs roster.
The Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide kick off at 8 p.m. on Monday in Indianapolis on ESPN.
