In a Southeastern Conference rematch for all the marbles, familiar foes No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia took center stage on Monday in the College Football Playoff National Championship.
More than 40 years in the making, Georgia brought home its first national title since the 1980 season as the Bulldogs conquered the Crimson Tide, 33-18, in the latter's quest to repeat.
