Stetson Bennett discusses 2 costly interceptions against Alabama
That Alabama beat Georgia in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday might not have been a huge surprise, but the way in which the Crimson Tide did it most definitely was.
Bryce Young and the Alabama offense shredded the Bulldogs’ vaunted defense en route to a 41-24 victory.
And Georgia’s attempts to keep up in what turned into a high-scoring affair were derailed by 2 costly Stetson Bennett interceptions in the 2nd half, one of which was deep in Alabama territory while the other was returned 42 yards for a touchdown by Jordan Battle.
Bennett did pass for 340 yards and 3 touchdowns as well in the game, but it was the interceptions and a couple of other questionable throws that were the focus afterward.
Asked one reporter: “Stetson, you referenced a couple picks you threw, and there was another one in the first half that was pretty close. I’m just wondering if you at all felt off at all tonight, or was it just a couple of mistakes basically?”
Here’s what Bennett had to say in response:
“No, I felt fine. The first one was a bad decision. The second one, I didn’t see the safety driving. Like I said, you can’t have those two plays against players like this. They made us pay for it.”
