Is Kirby Smart the Bill Belichick of college football? Learns under the goat and then eventually assumes the mantle and could potentially elevate it!!

Georgia football set the tone in the contest right away. The Bulldogs didn’t give TCU any opportunity to make a play that will inspire it to believe that it could score an upset — or even keep the game close. Bennett put the first points of the game on the board with a scintillating 21-yard rushing touchdown with 11 minutes remaining in the opening period. The Bulldogs would score 10 more points before the end of the first quarter which was also the only period in the entire game that TCU scored.
The game was virtually over before it was even halftime. Georgia football poured it on in the second quarter, scoring 21 points. That trend continued for the rest of the contest, with TCU bleeding for yards in the rare instances that they have the ball. The Bulldogs racked up a total of 589 yards and gave up only 188 to the Horned Frogs. Georgia football amazingly went 9 of 13 on third downs and 32 first downs. TCU was only 2 of 11 on third downs and collected just nine first downs.
TCU was simply outclassed by a much better program. Georgia made it look like it’s playing a different sport than the Horned Frogs, who should still be commended for having reached this far despite being unranked at one point in the regular season.
Bennett led Georgia with 304 passing yards and four touchdowns with zero interceptions on 18 of 25 completions in a memorable performance and ending to his storied college career.
