ATHENS - Georgia Bulldogs fans took to Downtown Athens to celebrate Monday night after the Dawgs dismissed Alabama in the national title game.

Bulldogs Return To CFP National Championship Game And Win It: Monday night, Georgia made its second appearance in the College Football Playoff, again as a No. 3 seed, and this time beat top-ranked Alabama 33-18 for its third national title and first since 1980. The MVPs were senior QB Stetson Bennett on offense and junior Lewis Cine on defense. Georgia snaps a seven-game losing streak in the series with Alabama and head coach Kirby Smart notches his first win over the Crimson Tide in five tries. Smart improves to 66-15 in his sixth season at his alma mater and now has a national title too. The Bulldogs complete the season with a 14-1 record, the most wins in a season in school history. Georgia has won titles in 1942, 1980 and now 2021. Bennett was the Offensive MVP of the Capital One Orange Bowl last week too.

The Georgia Bulldogs are national champions once more.

The No. 3 Bulldogs were considered 3-point favorites by FanDuel to beat No. 1 Alabama, and won their first national championship since 1980 with a 33-18 victory.

Now you can own this commemorative keep-sake hardcover book to remember the season. DAWGSTRUCTION will print in late January when the season concludes. The cover is subject to change.
