The Winners: Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia Bulldogs put on a strong show during the 2023 College Football Championship match, romping to an emphatic 65-7 victory over the TCU Horned Frogs. Subsequently, they joined Alabama by winning back-to-back national championships in College Football Playoff history. 

Their record-setting performance featured 589 yards of offense as they scored on 10 out of 12 possessions. Their defense collected three turnovers and five sacks and held the Horned Frogs’ production to 188 measly yards for good measure. The Georgia Bulldogs’ dazzling performance has secured their legendary status amongst college football fans in America and beyond.

With a spectacular performance, Georgia’s quarterback Stetson Bennett IV earned the spotlight in the BCS/CFP national title game. He dazzled with 304 yards and an impressive six total touchdowns, which included four passing and two rushings. Impressively, he even surpassed LSU’s Joe Burrow for most touchdowns and thus made history as he bowed to a celebratory curtain call in the fourth quarter.

After scoring a remarkable title victory, Georgia has sparked a new wave of chatter about the possibility of college football’s next kings. Sports analysts have compared head coach Kirby Smart and his famous protege Nick Saban from Alabama, creating anticipation for what is to come in their rivalry-filled future.

The Losers: TCU Horned Frogs

The Bulldogs proved too overwhelming despite Joe Gillespie’s TCU defense utilizing an inventive 3-3-5 scheme and aggressive blitz packages. Georgia unrelentingly converted on 9 of 13 third downs, scoring every single time they had possession during the game for a total of 45 points in as many plays. Even when TCU briefly regained its momentum, it wasn’t nearly enough to secure them a victory.

The Georgia Bulldogs offense ran rampant against TCU, leaving the Frogs grasping for answers. Georgia’s tight end Brock Bowers often found himself in a thrilling battle as he caught passes over the middle and dragged multiple defenders along with him to add extra yards. 

The running backs successfully created havoc after contact, while misalignments and busted coverages also favored the Bulldogs. This allowed them to build a commanding 38-7 lead by halftime before scoring 27 points in what was ultimately a resounding victory.

Which Players Won?

From an unknown to a legend, Stetson Bennett has made his mark. He’s the undisputed winner who sets records and powers up the Bulldogs when it matters most. Bennett exploded over the field with unmatched speed, and agility for three touchdown runs in UGA’s first half of play. He dashed 21 yards untouched into the end zone twice before tacking on another 6-yard run to put his team well ahead at halftime with four scores under his belt.

Javon Bullard had a rollercoaster of an outing in the college football championship game. From three turnovers, he’s now considered one of next season’s potential breakout stars.

Which Players Lost?

Max Duggan had a tough night at the college championship game, unable to get his Frogs on top with only 114 total yards and two costly turnovers. Despite their team’s hard work over the season, they could not conquer their opponents, leaving them defeated in this heartbreaking loss against the Bulldogs.


Each year, the battle in the college football championship takes place as four of the nation’s top teams face off for a chance to win. The NCAA tournament crowns the winners through competitive matchups, and as you can see from the discussion, the Bulldogs put up a spirited fight to become the champions and take the crown home.
