As he made his way through the confetti and cameras to the stage at SoFi Stadium to celebrate his second consecutive national championship at Georgia, Stetson Bennett waved his cigar like a conductor’s baton.
Brock Bowers was the best player in Bennett’s band on Monday night. The tight end from California worked well with his Georgia quarterback to win another championship for these great Bulldogs.
During the Dawgs’ 65-7 demolition of TCU, Bennett’s remarkable connection with Bowers was on display, and that chemistry was a big part of why the Bulldogs won again.
Bennett said, “It’s special.” We seem to have been trying to beat someone for the past three or four months, but we just ran out of games. Nothing could.”
Bowers had seven receptions for 152 yards and a touchdown from Bennett, including a 22-yard touchdown catch that effectively ended the game for the Horned Frogs in the epic blowout’s third quarter. Bennett ran for two more scores while passing for 304 yards and four touchdowns.
Probably played his best game, in my opinion,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart stated. Some of the checks he wrote and the choices he made were truly elite.
Bowers exemplifies Georgia’s present and future as a powerhouse team stacked with superb talents who have known nothing but championships for two incredible years, whereas Bennett’s unlikely journey traces the Bulldogs’ recent history.
Bowers and Bennett are more than five years apart in age, but the quarterback has managed to bridge that small generation gap to form a partnership that was able to compete in one final national showcase in Inglewood.
With a lot of help from Bowers, Bennett became the first player in Georgia’s long history to record 4,000 total offense yards in the first half. He also broke the Bulldogs’ single-season record for passing yards in the first half, punctuating a season in which the Bulldogs broke open opposing offenses early with passing before winning.
Ad: “For Stetson, that it is his second year and people are still doubting him? to have doubts about the Mailman? Zion Logue, a defensive lineman for Georgia, stated, “I don’t see why.” He is an incredible quarterback. He will be remembered as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play for Georgia.
Bennett, who went 29-3 as a starter at Georgia, is older than five of the current NFL playoff quarterbacks. When Georgia became just the fourth team to repeat since 1980, Bennett, Matt Leinart, and A.J. McCarron became the only quarterbacks in the 21st century to lead their teams to consecutive national championships.
Moments after the final whistle, Bennett’s teammates and coaches were already considering his place in Georgia’s history.
Ladd McConkey, a receiver who totaled five receptions for 88 yards and two touchdowns, said, “I think he goes down as the top.” Two consecutive national championships participated in every possible way. Yes, he has contributed greatly to this program. He should win, in my opinion.
A prime example of what Georgia has become in the past few seasons is a national powerhouse that can snag players from every corner of the map and turn them all into stars. Bowers’ decision to move from Northern California to Athens and his subsequent growth into a football juggernaut, which has led to comparisons to Travis Kelce, are prime examples.
Since his arrival at Georgia in 2021, Bowers, a 6-foot-4 multisport athlete who is freakishly fast for his size, has had a spectacular career. With his strength, speed, and versatility, he has led the Bulldogs in receiving for two years in a row, playing multiple roles, and causing numerous difficulties for opposing defenses.
Bowers had more receiving yards than TCU’s offense had total yards until late in the third quarter of the title game.
Bennett joined Georgia nearly six years ago, at the beginning of the program’s rise to prominence as the best in college football. During a timeout, he left early in the fourth quarter to a standing ovation from thousands of empathetic Bulldogs fans.
