ESPN Film Room returns for title game, with a twist

Nick Saban's shadow will extend beyond ESPN's regular game telecast on Monday night.

ESPN's highly popular Film Room returns for Monday night's CFP National Championship between Alabama and Georgia, but with a twist.

Past iterations of the show featured a handful of head coaches -- almost always from the Power 5, some with connections to the teams in the game, some without -- breaking down the game in between bites of pizza, this one will feature just Jimbo Fisher and his Texas A&M staff.

The first and, thus far, only former Nick Saban assistant to beat The Master, Fisher's team handed Alabama its only set back, a 41-38 decision on Oct. 9. Fisher and the A&M staff also played Kirby Smart's Georgia team in 2019, a 19-13 Bulldogs win in Athens.

Film Room will air on ESPN2.
