2021-22 College Football Playoff Scores, Results

2021 Season:

  • Cotton Bowl (Dec. 31 2021): No. 1 Alabama 27, No. 4 Cincinnati 6 (in Arlington, Texas)
  • Orange Bowl (Dec. 31, 2021): No. 3 Georgia 34, No. 2 Michigan 11 (in Miami Gardens, Florida)
  • CFP National Championship Game (Jan. 10, 2022): No. 3 Georgia 33, No. 1 Alabama 18 (in Indianapolis, Indiana).

With such dominance, Georgia has opened up all discussions about a new dynasty in college football and brought comparisons between Smart and his mentor, Alabama coach Nick Saban, to the surface.

Saban has seven more national championships than Smart, but Georgia has won 29 of its last 30 games and is 72-10 since the start of the 2017 season, with three SEC titles and five SEC East division titles.

Smart’s Dawgs finish 2022 atop the college football world, as they did in 2021; Monday’s dominant performance is only a reminder of how much work remains for the rest of the sport to catch up to Georgia.
