Stetson Bennett had one hell of a game for the Georgia Bulldogs in the College Football Playoff national championship game on Monday. Naturally, he was extra emotional after they took down the Alabama Crimson Tide and secured the national title.

It was by no means easy for the Bulldogs. They fell behind 9-6 at halftime and saw the Crimson Tide retake the lead in the fourth quarter after they went up by four heading to the final frame. Bennett himself had some trouble, with a controversial fumble call early in the fourth putting them in a perilous situation.

However, the Bulldogs held on and Bennett stepped up when it mattered most, catapulting Georgia to the College Football Playoff national title with a 33-18 victory. After they ensured their win off a Kelee Ringo touchdown from an interception return, the 23-year-old QB wasn't able to hold back his tears on the sidelines.

Everyone following the Georgia Bulldogs on their way to the College Football Playoff national championship knows where Stetson Bennett is coming from. He was a walk-on for the team, and he wasn't really the first-choice QB for the team at times. This 2021, he was the backup QB to JT Daniels, only to take over after the USC transfer suffered an injury.

Now, Bennett is a national champion. He scored two touchdowns against Alabama, both coming late in the fourth quarter to give Georgia the jolt it needed to pull away. He finished with 224 yards on 17-of-26 pass completion.

It was a game highlighted by defense, but there's no doubt Bennett stood out on College Football's biggest stage.
