The No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide are seeking their 17th national title when they face off Monday against the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs in the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. President Trump is scheduled to attend the showdown between the Southeastern Conference powerhouses, with the NAACP and Refuse Fascism ATL planning protests ahead of the game.

If the Bulldogs win, it will be their first title in 38 years; an Alabama victory would give head coach Nick Saban his fifth trophy with the team and sixth overall, tying him with Paul "Bear" Bryant for the most won by a head coach. Kickoff is at 8:17 p.m. ET, with the game broadcast on ESPN and streaming on Watch ESPN.
