College football is a sport that many people and families gather around the TV to watch every Saturday. Some people would say that they like college football more than NFL football. The excitement of watching young college stars and potential NFL draft picks is every Saturday is thrilling for all football fans.

The 2021-2022 college football season came to a close on Monday, January 10. A rematch between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide capped off an amazing bowl and playoff season.

Someone who watched the entirety of the game was Senior Max Williams. “I personally did not want to see Georgia and Alabama play in the national championship, but they are obviously the two best teams and deserved to play in the national championship.” said Williams.

Georgia and Alabama both play in the same conference (Southeastern Conference or SEC). These two teams played just over a month ago in the conference championship, where Alabama topped Georgia 41-24 in the contest.

“I thought that the first half went exactly how I thought it was going to be. No touchdowns and only a few field goals were scored in the first half. These two teams played each other just a few weeks ago so there shouldn’t be a ton of points score.” said Williams.

The score was 9-6 with an Alabama lead at half time. Georgia scored the only points in the third quarter on a rushing touchdown by Zamir White. The game was a nail bitter until late in the fourth quarter when Kelee Ringo punctuated the win for Georgia with a pick six late on Alabama’s last chance to score and win the game. The final score was a 33-18 win for the Georgia Bulldogs.

“When the pick six happened, I was so happy. I did not want to see another national championship for Alabama. I think that Georgia deserved to win this game, Alabama scored most of their points on field goals, which won’t win you many games and especially not the National Championship.” said Williams.
