Thrilling, jaw-dropping, historic -- the descriptions of Georgia football's 2017 season are now pushing the limits of both imagination and reality.

AccessWDUN sports has been on hand to witness the wild ride firsthand, and we will be there once again as the Bulldogs gun for ultimate glory in the 2018 College Football Playoff championship game against powerhouse Alabama on Monday in Atlanta.

We will get you prepped for the showdown with plenty of build-up for the Bulldogs first national title shot since 1982 -- a veritable lifetime ago in the span of a college football program.

We know fans are hungry for more from this team -- a group that has captivated and enthralled the red and black faithful ever since an offseason in which a handful of key players eschewed the NFL draft for one more shot at glory.

From the performance of leaders like Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and Lorenzo Carter, to the play of a fearless freshman quarterback, a bespectacled placekicker, a tackle machine at linebacker and everything in between, we'll get you set for Monday's winner-take-all battle at The Benz.

Standing in the way is an Alabama team that flexed its championship muscles in the semifinals, proving -- once again -- it's title-worthiness. Led by, arguably, the best coach in collegiate history, Nick Saban will look to continue his mastery of former assistants (Saban is 11-0 against former employees). Yet Kirby Smart and staff have shown that little can stand in their way this season -- be it a fired-up Auburn in the SEC title game or a Heisman trophy winner with a headstart in the Rose Bowl.

Will the Bulldogs keep "chopping wood" on Monday? You can bet it will be thrilling to find out. And AccessWDUN will be on hand to provide stories, video and social media from each step this week.
