Stop me if you've heard this before, but a team from the state of Georgia blew a double-digit lead in a championship game!
The Georgia Bulldogs took a 13-0 lead into the locker room at halftime and ended up losing, 26-23, in Monday’s overtime thriller of a CFP title game against Alabama thanks to Tua Tagovailoa’s beauty of a touchdown pass.
With this game being played in Atlanta, college football fans couldn’t help but draw comparisons to the Falcons’ Super Bowl collapse.
It will be the latest meltdown in a state that is growing increasingly accustomed to epic sporting failures.Twitter was in peak Atlanta/Georgia-roasting mode after the game.
