Kelee Ringo intercepted a pass and returned it 79 yards for a touchdown with 54 seconds remaining to put the finishing touches on a stellar defensive effort that helped lift No. 3 Georgia to a 33-18 win over No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on Monday night at Lucas Oil Stadium.

For the Bulldogs, the national championship is the program’s first since the undefeated 1980 season. This Georgia squad went through the regular season without a loss, only to fall to Alabama 41-24 in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 4. Georgia bounced back in the Orange Bowl playoff semifinal with a dominating 34-11 win over No. 2 Michigan, and on Monday the Bulldogs outscored Alabama 27-9 in the second half to win the championship.

“What a special moment for the University of Georgia and what a special moment for this team,” coach Kirby Smart said after the win. Go to GeorgiaDogs.com for the full game story, stats, game notes and more.

UGA photographers Andrew Davis Tucker, Dorothy Kozlowski, Peter Frey and Chamberlain Smith were in Indianapolis and Athens to capture all the activities in the gallery at the  link.
