Georgia Bulldogs Taking a Shot at History

Georgia Bulldogs Taking a Shot at History
Fact Checked by Nate Hamilton

Just as it had been in 2021 and 2022, the goal remains the same for the University of Georgia Bulldogs football team: win a National Championship. However, this year they are shooting for the historic goal of winning three straight national titles. It's just too bad that Georgia sports betting isn't legal yet for everyone to take part in history.

Since the Associated Press (AP) began crowning a national champion in 1936, six teams have had the opportunity to do so: Minnesota (1940, 1941), Army (1944, 1945), Notre Dame (1946, 1947), Oklahoma (1955, 1956), Nebraska (1994, 1995) and Alabama (2011, 2012), but all six failed to achieve the historic milestone. The Minnesota Golden Gophers are the only team to accomplish the feat (1934, 1935, 1936). 
Georgia, which won its first national title in 1980 behind Heisman Trophy running back Herschel Walker, is looking to join LSU, Minnesota, and Texas with four national championships.
