沃克, who is running for U.S. Senate in Georgia, was among those who were pumped for the Bulldogs’ 33-18 victory over Alabama. 在 1980, Walker ran for 1,616 yards and 15 touchdowns and helped the team beat Notre Dame for the title in the Sugar Bowl. Walker had 150 yards and a TD in that game.
“When you make a DAWG mad, they will bite back!! CONGRATS to the @GeorgiaFootball DAWGS!!!,” 他写了.
Other former Georgia players also chimed in.
Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett fired two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to help lift the Bulldogs to their first national championship since 1980.
在此期间早些时候导致阿拉巴马州得分的可疑失误之后, 贝内特将重新组合并向外接手阿多奈米切尔投掷一个 40 码达阵传球，让斗牛犬队重新站起来. Bennett would strike again later in the fourth with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Brock Bowers.
用 3:33 剩下, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Bryce Young would get the ball back to try to force overtime. Young would throw a Pick Six to Kelee Ringo, which would seal the deal.
Bennett finished 17-for-26 with 224 传球码数和两次达阵传球. Mitchell had two catches for 50 yards and Bowers had four catches for 36 码.
