Before the 2008 season, Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt declared that a new game was needed to face the spread-'em-out, run-the-ball, power-football games of the future. To find new ideas, Richt turned to his players, who came up with the idea of the "Upset Game".



Que is the latest star in a line of English bulldogs, owned by the Seiler family of Savannah, Ga., that have served as Georgia’s living, breathing athletic symbol since 1956. In his role since 2015, Que normally passes games at Sanford Stadium in Athens in an air-conditioned doghouse. The stadium, of course, has Uga lore beyond the hedges that line the field: Georgia buries its deceased canine mascots in marble vaults in Sanford.

The long wait is over for Bulldogs fans after 41 years without a national title. With an offense that dominated in the last third of the game, Georgia wore down Alabama in the fourth quarter and scored three touchdown on four possessions to put them ahead 26-19 late and then Kelee Ringo sealed the 33-18 victory with 79-yard interception return off an errant pass by Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young.

The Georgia Bulldogs football program represents the University of Georgia in the sport of American football. The Bulldogs compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). They play their home games at historic Sanford Stadium on the university's Athens, Georgia, campus. Georgia's inaugural season was in 1892. UGA claims three consensus national championships (1942, 1980 and 2021); the AP and Coaches Polls have each voted the Bulldogs the national champion twice (1980 and 2021); Georgia has also been named the National Champion by at least one polling authority in four other seasons (1920, 1927, 1946 and 1968). The Bulldogs have won 15 conference championships, including 13 SEC championships, tied for second-most in conference history, and have appeared in 59 bowl games, tied for second-most all-time. The program has also produced two Heisman Trophy winners, four number-one National Football League (NFL) draft picks, and many winners of other national awards. The team is known for its storied history, unique traditions, and rabid fan base, known as the "Bulldog Nation". Georgia has won over 800 games in their history, placing them 11th all-time in wins and has finished in the Top 10 of the AP Poll 26 times, 13 of which were Top 5 finishes.
