The Georgia Bulldogs headed into Saturday’s SEC championship game with a chip on their shoulder after being demolished by Auburn earlier this season. The Bulldogs responded by playing ferocious defense and complimentary offense winning the game 28-7.
There is no love lost between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers two teams that now have even more reason to hate each other. The Bulldogs won the game in Atlanta on Saturday night 28-7 making them SEC champs and giving them a playoff berth.
For Kirby Smart the win spoke to a program that he has turned around in only his second year and looks to have a team capable of winning a National title. For now, the Dawgs are satisfied after avenging their earlier loss to Auburn and making themselves SEC champions for the first time in over a decade.
Georgia has secured a playoff berth as well and will be watching closely as the committee will decide where Georgia is ranked after knocking off the #2 Auburn Tigers.
Nick Chubb and Sony Michel led the Dawgs offensive attack with Jake Fromm making the throws that he needed to including throwing two touchdown passes and taking care of the ball with zero turnovers.
The Georgia Bulldogs will not shift their focus to begin to prepare for the playoffs. The Dawgs are two games away for a National title it is the first time that they have been in contention for the title since the new playoff system has been put into place three years ago.
