After all that chaos and arguing, after a season of two College Football Playoff first-timers, and just when it looked like it might be a moment in which some new blood could break through, it’s Georgia and Alabama. Again, and emphatically so.
The third-ranked Bulldogs clobbered No. 2 Michigan, 34-11, at the Orange Bowl in Miami Gardens, Fla. on Friday night to set up a rematch of the SEC title game in next Monday’s national championship game.
Georgia will play for its first national title since the halcyon days of Herschel Walker and 1980, and its coach, former Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart, will get a fifth shot at Nick Saban.
