The five keys to Georgia's landslide victory over TCU in the CFP final

The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the TCU Horned Frogs 65-7 in the final of the College Football Playoffs.

With this, the team led by head coach Kirby Smart got the two-time college football championship.

Georgia’s season was historic as they are the fifth college team to finish 15-0 or better. The other four were Yale in 1894 at 16-0, Penn in 1897, Clemson in 2018 and LSU in 2019 at 15-0.

Here are the five keys to success for the Bulldogs.

Stetson Bennett

The Georgia QB was chosen as the Offensive MVP after generating six touchdowns, four passing and two carrying. Only quarterbacks Vince Young and Craig Krenzel had rushed for multiple TDs in a championship game. Likewise, he passed for 304 yards after completing 18 of 25 throws.

Javon Bullard

Bullard shone in the CFP final for his ability to generate turnovers. The defensive back recorded two interceptions and a fumble recovery. Also, he made a tackle.

Pressure on Duggan

Max Duggan was a Heisman Trophy finalist, but Georgia’s defense was too much for him. The TCU QB was sacked five times and threw two interceptions against the Bulldogs.

Davis Fumble

Derius Davis was the Horned Frogs’ leading WR with 101 yards on five receptions, but fumbled on the second drive of the game and Bullard recovered.

Kirby Smart

Smart became the first head coach to win college championships under the CFP format. Since he took over the Bulldogs, the team is 80-15 and has won two of the three Finals he has coached.
