Bulldogs fans have been waiting for a national championship for 41 years. With a dominating offense in the fourth quarter, Georgia wore down Alabama and scored three touchdowns on four possessions to take the lead 26-19 late, and then Kelee Ringo won the game with a 79-yard interception return off an errant pass by Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young.

While the Crimson Tide’s defense appeared to falter late, the running game was crucial. After Alabama had taken an 18-13 lead in the fourth quarter, James Cook and Zamir White found the end zone and Stetson Bennett threw two key touchdown passes to complete a comeback.

Athens will celebrate the end of the long-overdue championship drought that started when Hershel Walker won with Georgia in 1980.
