Georgia football took the best shot from Cincinnati and earned a dramatic last second to give the Bulldogs lots of momentum for 2021
Georgia football trailed most of the game vs Cincinnati, but a strong defensive effort in the second half and a great kick from Jack Podlesny gave the Bulldogs a second straight win in the New Years Six.
The Bearcats came out and proved that they belonged on the same field as Georgia and that they were on of the best teams in the country and they deserve the respect that many have been reluctant to give them all season.
The Georgia offense came into this game playing as well as any offense in the country and that was due to JT Daniels taking over at quarterback and unlocking a vertical passing attack that has been missing in Athens. That passing game had to take on a Cincinnati secondary that was considered one of the best in the country and they gave the Bulldogs all that they could handle.
The Bearcats jumped out to an early lead after Georgia stalled out on their first couple of drives and got an early 7-0 lead. Georgia football got on the board courtesy of a touchdown pass to talented receiver George Pickens and tied the game up 7-7.
The Bearcats did a great job of locking up the Bulldogs ground game for the majority of the time, but the Bearcats struggled to move the ball after going up 21-10 courtesy of a long touchdown run.
Georgia took advantage of a Desmond Ridder fumble and cut the game to 21-16 and then a huge 3rd down stop with under two minutes to play gave the Bulldogs a shot to win. Daniels had a couple of huge throws on the last drive and Georgia nailed the game winning field goal to avoid the upset. This was an entertaining game between two great teams and both should be proud of where there programs are heading into next season.
Here are the three takeaways from Georgia’s victory over Cincinnati.
