There will never be enough 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship videos for Georgia fans. So Dawgs fans are excused if they still get a little tears in their eyes watching Tuesday’s recap of the 33-18 win over Alabama, posted by the CFP Twitter account as a recap of the end of the academic Year 2021-22 was published. Watch the 5 minute, 26 second video below using Kelee Ringo‘s now iconic pick-six to book the 72 hours before kick-off.
Georgia won its first title since 1980 in January, defeating then-No. 1 Alabama at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Redshirt senior quarterback Stetson Bennett IV was named Offensive Player of the Game after completing 17 of 26 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns and no interceptions. Asked during the trophy presentation how important it was to lead Georgia to a national championship, Bennett, who had been fighting back tears on the touchline in the last minute before Georgia’s victory, did as he had done all season. He spread love to others.
“I love these guys,” Bennett said. “I have no words. We have the biggest fans in the world and this is the best team in the world.”
youth safety Lewis cinema earned Defensive Player of the Game honors after making seven tackles, one tackle for loss and one stop pass in victory. He was part of a Georgia defense that held Alabama with 28 carries for 30 rushing yards and dismissed the Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young four times, forced two interceptions, had eight lost tackles and limited the Crimson Tide to 4.7 yards per play.
“I think our defense is definitely in there story books,” Cine said after the game.
As the academic year draws to a close, we look back at the 2021-22 college football season, which will be capped by the #CFBPlayoff #National Championship in between @GeorgiaFootball and @AlabamaFTBL at @LucasOilStadium.
