Stetson Bennett threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores in the first half in a National Title game that was never in doubt for the defending champs as they rolled over No. 3 TCU 65-7 to become the first team to win consecutive College Football Playoff national championships
Fellow Heisman Trophy finalist Max Duggan had a rough night against the nation’s most dominant defense, tossing a pair of interceptions as the Bulldogs pass rush was relentless all night long.
Just like everybody else watching the game, Stephen A. Smith couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
In the midst of speaking about the Monday night game in SoFi Stadium on First Take, the ESPN personality congratulated the wrong team on winning the ttile.
“What was that? What a disgrace,” Smith said. “Congratulations to Alabama, but damn! It would’ve been nice to see… I’m sorry I said Alabama because that’s what’s on my mind. I meant to say Georgia.”
The massive victory by Georgia caps off a perfect season for the Bulldogs, who become the first back-to-back national champs since Nick Saban’s Alabama team nearly a decade ago.
Smith may have Bama on his mind because that team is unlikely to mis the playoffs next year and could set up a collision course with Georgia yet again.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
