The 2022 College Football National Championship game took place Monday, January 10th. It was a showdown between two SEC (Southeastern Conference) schools, the #1 ranked University of Alabama Crimson Tide and the #3 ranked University of Georgia Bulldogs. It was a game for the record books. Alabama entered the game with a record of 13-1, with its only loss of the season on October 9th to Texas A&M. Georgia also came into the championship with only one loss that was ironically handed to them by none other than Alabama in the SEC Championship Game back in December. The first time these teams met, the Tide won in a dominant fashion, outscoring the bulldogs 41-24. But Georgia was ready for another opportunity to take down the most notorious teams in College Football history, who have won 4 championships in the past 10 years alone. When the teams took the field in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN, they knew it would be a dog fight for the title. Even experts of the sport's opinions were split on who would be the winner. It was destined to be a good game.
The game started off slow in the first half. It was a back and forth game, with each team only able to manage field goals before halftime. Alabama entered the break with a slight lead of 9-6. In the third quarter, Georgia was the first team to put points on the board, with a touchdown and successful extra points. It was still anyone's game, until the fourth quarter. Alabama started the quarter off hot with a field goal and touchdown but failed to score on a 2 point conversion. For the last ten minutes of the game, Georgia absolutely dominated. With three unanswered touchdowns and two successful extra points, the Bulldogs proved themselves as the best team in College Football. It was the first national title for Georgia in 41 years, the last being in 1980, and only their third ever. The game wraps up the 2021-2022 College Football season and leaves football fans wondering what team will thrive in the 2022-2023 season.
