The Georgia Bulldogs are the first back-to-back National Champions in the College Football Playoff era (since 2014) after hammering the TCU Horned Frogs 65-7 on Monday.

There were ominous signs early as Georgia quickly forced a TCU punt on the opening possession, before marching down the field in five plays to open the scoring with a 21-yard touchdown run from quarterback Stetson Bennett.

TCU tried to make a game of it, scoring their only touchdown of the contest in the first quarter with a short-range quarterback run of their own from Max Duggan, but the Georgia defense went up a level and shut things down the rest of the way.

Bennett rushed for his second touchdown and threw two more to open up a commanding 38-7 lead at half-time, and they continued to pile on after the break, with two more touchdown passes.

In his second consecutive National Championship win, former walk-on Bennett completed 18 of his 25 passes for 304 yards, four touchdowns and no turnovers.

His top weapon was sophomore tight end and future first-round draft pick Brock Bowers, who reeled in seven catches for 152 yards and a score as he showed exactly why he is considered the best tight end in college football.

The Bulldogs have now won 26 games in a row with two championships across the past two seasons.
