Hardly anyone drew up the closeness in the game between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Ohio State Buckeyes, and there were several factors it came down to outside of just the missed field goal that allowed Georgia to get by with the 42-41 victory.

“They connect, they really believe in each other,” head coach hKirby Smart said in a recent interview with SportsCenter. “(Stetson Bennett) makes a mistake, he makes a poor play and he shakes it off and he comes right back.”

That’s been the story of the walk-on and the remainder of his supporting cast as they continue to play the next play and move forward just one step away from winning their second consecutive national championship. Bennett was solid in the semifinal game, completing 67.6% of his passing attempts for 398 yards with 3 touchdowns and 1 interceptions.
