On Monday night, the state will sit virtually still as Georgia takes on SEC rivals Alabama for the Bulldogs’ first national championship since 1980.

Why is this important: The Bulldogs-Crimson Tide rivalry is one of college football’s great feuds, with a sheet of 25-42-4.

  • The Georgia House of Representatives begins — and ends — on the first day of this year’s legislative session early Monday so state leaders can travel to Indianapolis.

Statistics: Kendall Baker of Axios Sports reports that the crowd is expected to be 61% Georgia fans, per Vivid Seats. And the top two cities for people traveling to Indy this weekend are Atlanta and Athens, per Airbnb.

When and where to watch: The game starts at 8 p.m. on ESPN, ESPN+ and other choices.

Exit: Like we said, almost every TV in every bar will be tuned to this game. But if you don’t have a favorite watering hole, here are some options:

  • Half way pub in the village of East Atlanta: Enjoy an outdoor patio and extra hot wings with scorpion pepper flakes to keep you warm.
  • Woof’s Sports Bar at Armor Yards: The LGBTQ sports bar with nearly 30 TVs welcomes you with open arms.
  • Dugan’s Restaurant and Bar in Poncey-Highland: Loud, big and always a good time. Go for the XX-hot fenders.
  • Sporty and social at The Battery: Fans of the mega sports bar can expect games, food and a 32-foot TV.
