Here are three takeaways from #3 Georgia’s dominant victory of Michigan in the Orange Bowl.

The National Championship is set. In a rematch of the SEC Championship Game and the 2018 National Title, the Georgia Bulldogs will play the Alabama Crimson Tide for the national title. The Bulldogs punched their ticket with a dominant 34-11 victory over the #2 Michigan Wolverines.

Georgia never trailed and the Wolverines did not score a touchdown until the fourth quarter in what was a wire-to-wire victory for the Bulldogs. Quarterback Stetson Bennett IV was hardly pressured as he had his best game of the season, throwing for 313 yards and three touchdowns.

The running game was complimentary and effective, with back Zamir White running for 54 yards and the Bulldogs running for 190 total against the Wolverines.

Defensively, it was the Georgia Bulldogs’ boa constrictor. The defensive line dominated the line of scrimmage, and the Wolverines could not get anything going all game, scoring just three points in the first half.

Michigan could not sustain drives, and Georgia forced a slew of turnovers. Wolverines’ quarterback Cade McNamara threw for just 109 yards and tossed two interceptions. Michigan’s run game, usually stout, ran for just 84 yards.

Georgia was all business this evening, assuring an opportunity to atone for its loss in the SEC title game and the 2018 National Championship Game. Here are three takeaways from tonight’s game.
