Georgia becomes 12th consecutive champion in AP Top 25 history

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Georgia took first place in the final Associated Press Top 25 college football poll, becoming the nation’s 12th straight league champion in league history after Monday night’s TCU debacle.

The Horned Frogs finished in 2nd place, their best overall ranking since the 2010 season. Michigan was No. 3, followed by the states of Ohio and Alabama.

Georgia received all 63 first-place votes in the poll presented by the Bank of Regions.

The Bulldogs won the College Football Playoff National Championship 65–7 to claim their third AP title overall. Their first school appeared in 1980. Georgia also became the 14th school with three national AP titles.

“Man, we hold ourselves to high standards,” Georgia quarterback Keli Ringo said after TCU’s historic failure at Sofi Stadium.

The most recent team to finish consecutive No. 1 seasons in the AP Top 25 was Alabama in 2011 and 2012.

Tennessee finished in 6th place, giving the Southeastern Conference half of the top six teams.
