The Georgia Bulldogs overpowered the Michigan Wolverines in a 34-11 win. The Dawgs advance to the national championship to face the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Kirby Smart and Georgia jumped out to a 27-3 lead in the first half. Quarterback Stetson Bennett played well and connected on touchdowns passes to Brock Bowers, Jermaine Burton, and James Cook.
Georgia’s defense returned to stifling form against Michigan. The Bulldogs forced three turnovers. Defensive back Derion Kendrick had two interceptions and linebacker Nakobe Dean forced a fumble. The Wolverines averaged just 3.4 yards per carry against UGA’s strong front seven.
