UGA celebrates national champion Bulldogs with parade, ceremony

ATHENS, Ga. — Bulldawg Nation came together Saturday to celebrate the new national champions with a parade through Athens and a ceremony.

Georgia defeated Alabama, 33-18, in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night to win its first title since the 1980 season.

Around 12:30 p.m., a caravan of players rolled through the streets of Athens amid a sea of red and black. There were as many people in Athens for the parade as there is for a normal game day.

The players and coaches then did a Dawg Walk before a ceremony was held inside Sanford Stadium.
