The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs and the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes will square off in the second College Football Playoff semifinal before the new year. The Bulldogs’ de facto home game will be in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta for the CFP Semifinal.
One of three FBS teams who had not given up 21 or more points in any half of the season going into the day was the defending national champion Georgia, but that quickly changed as Ohio State stormed out to a 21-7 lead before the halfway point of the second quarter.
The Bulldogs managed three scoring drives despite their early deficit and briefly led 24-21. The Buckeyes soon recovered the lead due to a 37-yard touchdown pass from C.J. Stroud with 49 seconds left before halftime. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, Georgia is 1-9 under Kirby Smart when behind by at least 14 points. Follow For More Updates at satiknews.com
Georgia has let up over 35 points to a non-SEC opponent with fewer than nine minutes left in the game, just the third time in the previous ten seasons, and Bulldogs supporters are not happy.
The team’s touchdown, though, put the defending champions within a field goal of tying the game at 8:41.
Thanks, King James
This season, Marvin Harrison Jr. has consistently found the end zone, and the first half was no exception. With the game’s opening score, Harrison equaled Chris Olave (2021) and David Boston (1998) for the third-most touchdown receptions in a season in Ohio State history. LeBron James, a well-known Buckeyes supporter and star player for the Los Angeles Lakers, was also immediately drawn to him. For the latest news, follow us on Google News
Harrison sprinted for it just before halftime. He scored two touchdowns and gained 106 yards on five receptions. In Buckeyes history, his eighth 100-yard receiving game this year is tied for second most in a season.
