Georgia is trying to become the first team since Alabama in 2011-12 to win consecutive national titles. A year ago, the Bulldogs claimed their first championship since the 1980 season. Ohio State can reach the national title game for the third time, even though the Buckeyes didn’t play for the Big Ten championship. The Buckeyes won the inaugural CFP title during the 2014-15 campaign and lost to Alabama in the championship game two seasons ago.
The winner will advance to the play TCU in the national championship game on Jan. 9 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
Here are the highlights from the Peach Bowl.
Ohio State on the board first
After Georgia missed a field goal on its opening drive of the game, the Buckeyes went to work
After getting off to a slow start, Georgia’s offense came to life on its second possession. Running back Kenny McIntosh lined up as a receiver and caught a screen pass, which he took 25 yards to the house. The touchdown tied the game at 7-7.
Hold on, Harrison!
The Buckeyes got away with one when Harrison made some moves to get the YAC, but got the ball punched out of his arm while he was still running. Luckily for Harrison, the ball rolled out of bounds and the Buckeyes kept the ball in the red zone.
Make ’em miss, Miyan
Miyan Williams returned in a big way for the Buckeyes already. Battling an ankle injury, Williams pounded the ball in for a 1-yard score to give the Buckeyes the lead back.
Stetson put in Steele Chambers
The Georgia QB reportedly suffered an injury to his right foot in the first quarter but remained in the game. However, in his first play back, Bennett underthrew a wide receiver and was picked off by Steele Chambers.
Following the interception, Ohio State capitalized not too long after when Stroud escaped the pressure on the blitz before throwing off balance to Harrison in the end zone.
Air it out to Arian!
Bennett made up for the interception on the following drive by launching a deep completion to Arian Smith for a 47-yard gain to get the Bulldogs deep into Buckeyes territory.
Shopping for TDs at Milton’s
Right after Bennett’s deep strike to Smith, Kendall Milton fought and reached his way into the end zone for an 11-yard score to make it a 21-14 game in the second quarter.
He’s gonna score a touchdo-wait, what?
McIntosh had one man to beat, and junked him out. So, he was on his way for six, right? Wrong. The Georgia star tripped up at the 10-yard line, confusing even Chris Fowler who already said he scored a touchdown.
It’s OK McIntosh, Bennett’s got you. The Georgia QB ran for a 3-yard score to even the game up at 21-21 in the middle of the second quarter.
X-man, spin man
Ohio State made easy work of its two-minute drill. On the fourth play of the drive, Xavier Johnson caught a pass down the middle of the field and spun his way out of a couple tackles to score a 37-yard touchdown. The Buckeyes went 75 yards on the drive to take a 28-24 lead going into halftime.
