ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs raised another banner Saturday - the program’s second in a row. 

The banner was hoisted to the top of Sanford Stadium after a day of celebration for the program. It is the first time in the history of the College Football Playoff to win championships in back-to-back seasons. 

The Bulldogs finished the 2022 season undefeated for the first time since 1980. Georgia’s 65-7 win over TCU in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game was the program’s second in as many seasons. 

No program has gone back-to-back as national champions since Alabama reached that accomplishment with Kirby serving as Nick Saban’s defensive coordinator in 2011-12. Georgia’s Stetson Bennett completed his long journey in college football as one of the few signal callers to win the national title as a starter in two seasons. 

Bennett’s improbable march to the mountaintop doesn’t match the rest of the Dawgs’ powerful program, which is loaded with five- and high-star recruits who were coveted by nearly every program in the nation.

Historic Success: With its 65-7 win over No. 3 TCU, Georgia (15-0) captured its fourth national championship and became the first team to win back-to-back titles in the CFP era. The only other teams to win two straight titles since 1990 have been Nebraska (1994-95), USC (2003-04) and Alabama (2011-12). 

*Georgia secured its 868th all-time win, good for ninth place for Most Wins in FBS history. Georgia began this season 11th, moving past USC and Tenn.

*The 2022 senior class concludes its career with a school record 49-5 mark and two national championships.

*The Bulldogs are one of only three FBS teams in the modern era to finish a season a school record 15-0, joining Clemson (2018) and LSU (2019).

*The Bulldogs have tied the school record for consecutive wins with 17 straight going back to last season’s CFP semifinal/Capital One Orange Bowl win over No. 2 Michigan.  From 1945-47, Georgia had a stretch where it won 17 games in a row.

*The Bulldogs are now 5-1 in the CFP under Kirby Smart including 2-1 in CFP National Championship Games.
