TCU's only touchdown came on a 2-yard run by quarterback Max Duggan to cut Georgia's lead to 10-7 in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs responded by scoring 55 unanswered points, which included Bennett connecting with Ladd McConkey on a pair of touchdown passes int he first and third quarters, once with Adonai Mitchell in the second quarter and once with Brock Bowers in the third quarter, as well as scoring on a 22-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
