Bennett spoke to ESPN’s Holly Rowe after his 224 yard pass and two touchdowns helped Georgia claim their biggest win in 41 years.

The first half of the match was a battle between the defenses of both teams, causing them to settle the score. It was a completely different story in the second half, and Georgia came to fruition. First, they led their first game on a one-yard field run by Zamir White. Then, Stetson Bennett hit the ground with an impressive pass to give Adonai Mitchell an 18-13 lead. The lead continued to widen on Brock Bowers’ 15-yard catch and run.

But the Bulldogs officially won when Kelee Ringo blocked Bryce Young’s pass and returned 79 yards for a touchdown with less than a minute of regulation left.

The Bulldogs and their fans have had a long wait, but this championship will be one they will never forget.
