“This is the second time Georgia has made the CFP and the Bulldogs have advanced to the National Championship Game both times. Georgia will again face Alabama in the National Championship Game. The Bulldogs advanced this year as the No. 3 seed after topping No. 2 Michigan 34-11 in the Capital One Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla. In 2017, third-seeded Georgia beat second-seeded Oklahoma 54-48 in 2OT in the CFP Semifinal Rose Bowl Game and then fell to 4th-seeded Alabama in overtime at the National Championship Game 26-23.”


History:

  • This season marked the first time since 1980 that the Bulldogs went 12-0 during the regular season. Georgia became only the fourth team in school history to finish a regular season undefeated and untied with double-digit victories (1946, 1980, 1982). Prior to this season, Vince Dooley’s 1980 consensus national champions was the last Georgia squad to go 12-0 after defeating Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. The school record for wins in a season is 13, and that’s been done three times (2002 under Mark Richt, 2017 & 2021 under Kirby Smart).
  • The Bulldogs rank second nationally with 58 bowl appearances. Georgia’s latest bowl win over No. 2 Michigan in the CFP Semifinal Capital One Orange Bowl was its 25th consecutive appearance, which is the nation’s longest active bowl streak. In school history, Georgia owns a 34-21-3 record in bowl games.
