What a difference one year makes: UGA 2016 vs. 2017


You're not dreaming.

The Georgia Bulldogs are just one win away from playing for the National Championship.

The Dawgs, coming off an impressive 28-7 victory over Auburn in the SEC Championship, face Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1

The winner moves onto Atlanta and the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Now, be honest, who would have thought that was possible just a year ago?

How about on Oct. 30, 2016, when UGA was just 4-4 and coming off a 14-point loss to Florida?

Kirby Smart's team has come quite a long way in just one season.
