Georgia Bulldogs National Championship Odds
While Alabama may be the cream of the crop in the SEC, the Georgia Bulldogs aren’t far behind. They went 10-3 last season, making it to the conference championship game and the Sugar Bowl. The Bulldogs fell short in both contests but have high expectations heading into 2019. The offense is expected to be prolific as coach Kirby Smart aims to have his team in the hunt for the College Football Playoff. Even though the SEC is tough, Georgia has enough talent to give the Crimson Tide a run for its money.

Georgia is feeling good about its ability to be among the nation’s elite in large part because of the return of quarterback Jake Fromm. He threw for 2,761 yards with 30 touchdowns and six interceptions last season. Fromm completed 67.4 percent of his passes and will aim to have another prolific year. Fromm is projected to go in the top-10 of the NFL draft next season and is among the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy.
The Bulldogs will aim to have a strong running game behind D’Andre Swift, who had 163 carries for 1,049 yards with 10 touchdowns as a sophomore in a timeshare and could play a bigger role in 2019. Georgia has to replace some key receivers, including Riley Ridley and Mecole Coleman, but should have skill players ready to fill in.
Georgia has traditionally had a strong defense but will need to replace star cornerback Deandre Baker, who has moved on to the NFL after being a high draft pick. Even without him, the Bulldogs boast some talented pieces and if the defense can play well, this team has a high ceiling.

One of the jewels of the south, organized football has been played at Georgia since the 1890s. An original member of the SEC, the Bulldogs plodded along until joining the conference. UGA put its stamp on the college football world in 1942 by claiming its first national championship with an 11-1 record and victory over UCLA in the Rose Bowl. In 1946, for the first time as a major college program, the Bulldogs posted a perfect season with 11 victories.
It wasn’t until Vince Dooley took over the program in 1964 that the program enjoyed a sustained run of success. The Bulldogs had just one losing season in Dooley’s 25 years at the helm, playing in 20 bowl games. Led by Herschel Walker, the 1980 team went 12-0 and knocked off Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl to claim its second national championship. Dooley retired following the 1988 season as the programs all-time wins leader with 201.
The second year was good to the last two head coaches. In 2002 the Bulldogs went 13-1 with a Sugar Bowl victory, ending the season ranked No. 3 in the AP poll. Mark Richt couldn’t match that in the succeeding 13 seasons, though the Dogs hit double figures in wins nine times. UGA is poised for another strong run after solid recruiting from Smart. Georgia has been in the upper echelon of college teams the past few seasons and has legitimate national championship aspirations in 2019.
