ATLANTA (AP) — The going only gets tougher for Alabama’s normally explosive offense. The Crimson Tide was held out of the end zone for the first 59 minutes and 36 seconds by Auburn.

Heisman Trophy front-runner Bryce Young and the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide are gearing up to face No. 1 Georgia and the nation’s top defense Saturday in the Southeastern Conference Championship game.

Making matters more challenging, Alabama tailback Brian Robinson Jr. is nursing a left leg injury and his status is uncertain for the game.

If he can’t play, that leaves Trey Sanders as the Tide’s only healthy scholarship running back.

Catch the SEC Championship game right here on CBS 42. Kick off Saturday at 3 p.m.
