Georgia wins their first National Championship in 41 years

Two teams from the south took over the city of Indianapolis for a couple days before their match-up in Lucas Oil Stadium. This is the second time in the last four years that the Georgia Bulldogs had to face the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship and many of us remember how that game went at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 

The first half was tense as both defenses set the tone with physical play! It was all about field goals. Neither team was able to score any touchdowns but Alabama kicker Will Reichert and Georgia’s kicker Jack Podlesny had an opportunity to beef up the scoreboard. At the end of the first half, Alabama led Georgia 9-6, but no one could predict what would happen in the second half.

68,311 rabid fans witnessed both Southeastern Conference teams battled feverishly to establish some sort of momentum. A huge stop by the Bulldogs defense in the 3rd quarter where Jalen Carter blocked a 48 yard field goal attempt, causing the UGA fans to bark around the stadium. This is the moment when the momentum shifted Georgia’s way.
