Angry Dawgs: No. 3 Georgia beats No. 2 Michigan 34-11 in CFP

Stetson Bennett threw three touchdown passes, Nakobe Dean led an angry Georgia defense and the third-ranked Bulldogs returned to their dominant ways, beating No. 2 Michigan 34-11 in the Orange Bowl to advance to the College Football Playoff championship.

Georgia earned a rematch with Southeastern Conference nemesis Alabama in the title game on Jan. 10 in Indianapolis.

It was a little less than a month ago the Crimson Tide handed the Bulldogs their only setback of the season. If there was any question about whether the damage from that humbling 41-24 loss would linger, the Bulldogs answered them quickly.

Georgia became the first team in the eight-year history of the CFP to score on each of its first five possessions and led 27-3 at halftime.
