Georgia Bulldogs win second SEC Championship since 2017
Explosive Bulldogs Capture SEC Title With 50-30 Win
ATLANTA — The top-ranked Georgia football team produced explosive plays all over the field during the Bulldogs’ 50-30 win over No. 14 LSU in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday afternoon at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
On offense, defense and special teams, the Bulldogs (13-0) delivered en route to the program’s first SEC title since 2017. Georgia’s offense produced a gaudy 529 yards and went 5-for-5 in the red zone.
While the defense gave up a lot of yards and big plays, it also forced three turnovers and made multiple timely stops to help Georgia pull away for good. Special teams produced a touchdown early from safety Christopher Smith’s 96-yard blocked field goal return for a touchdown for the game’s first points.
LSU (9-4) generated 549 yards of offense, 502 through the air, striking for multiple big plays against Georgia’s highly-rated defense. But the Bulldogs hunkered down when they had to. Georgia has now captured 14 SEC championships and will play Ohio State in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl on New Year’s Eve.
