Georgia head coach Kirby Smart celebrates with Stetson Bennett after the College Football Playoff National Championship against Alabama Monday in Indianapolis. Defensively, Georgia turned Alabama away for field goals on three of its four red-zone possessions, and came up with a late pick-six of Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young to seal the victory. Young, the sophomore Heisman Trophy winner, completed 35 of 57 passes for 369 yards and a touchdown, but found himself under far more pressure from the Bulldogs pass rush than he did in Alabama 's 41-24 win over Georgia in the

Stetson Bennett IV was, appropriately, Georgia 's fourth choice at QB this year. But after injuries, opt-outs and ineffectiveness, he's the clear starter. Here's his journey from a tiny stadium in southeast Georgia to the biggest stage against Alabama . He drew praise from Georgia 's defense after mimicking Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield in preparation for playing Oklahoma in a CFP semifinal at the Rose Bowl. " Stetson Bennett is a beast, man," then-defensive coordinator Mel Tucker said at the time. "He puts a lot of pressure on our defense because he is extremely quick, he's fast

It was a night to remember for Stetson Bennett in Indianapolis on Monday.

Georgia's quarterback threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns in the Bulldogs's 32-18 victory, a win that was sealed on a pick-six from cornerback Kelee Ringo. Bennett didn't quite see the clinching play, though, as he began crying and hugging anyone in sight on the Georgia sideline following the interception.

Bennett's outpouring of emotion certainly makes sense given his path to Monday's national championship. He came to Georgia as a walk-on in 2017, and he did not log a start until midway through the 2020 season. Bennett even entered the 2021 season as the backup to USC transfer JT Daniels, though Bennett ultimately took the starting job in September after Daniels suffered an injury.

Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett is tackled for a loss by Alabama defensive lineman Phidarian Mathis during the second half of the SEC championship game. The Alabama game came after a dominant regular season for the Bulldogs where it blew out one opponent after another after the opener. Players said that woke them up and they realized they hadn’t arrived yet. “Definitely this game is a lot more mental than physical,” Davis said. “And these teams are pretty much evenly matched when it comes to personnel and physicality and everything.

Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett has struggled quite a bit against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. He’s been missing throws that he hasn’t missed all season, plus has struggled under pressure all game. Coming into this contest, Bennett had thrown for 21 touchdowns One of his best performances came against Georgia Tech last Saturday when he finished with 255 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-0 win . Bennett hasn’t been close to that level against the Crimson Tide and may have just given the game away for good. Trailing 31-17, Bennett threw a pass over the middle which

It's unlikely Bennett is the lone Georgia player, coach or fan to shed a tear or two on Monday. The win over Alabama marks Georgia's first national title since the 1980 season, and Monday's victory served as a bit of redemption after Alabama's comeback to claim the national title in January 2018.

Bennett has one more year of eligibility left if he wishes to return to Georgia. Based on Monday's result, he'll be welcomed back between the hedges with open arms if he opts for one more season in Athens.

Kansas teen's death has spotlight on 'stand your ground' law .
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas lawmakers were thinking of homeowners facing down burglars and people attacked on the street when they wrote a “stand your ground” law more than a decade ago allowing use of deadly force in self defense. They didn't envision it applying to police officers, jail guards or government employees. Now even some Republicans in the GOP-controlled Legislature who support the idea behind the law want to revisit it. The reason: A prosecutor said this week that it prevented him from criminally charging employees of a juvenile intake center in Wichita in the death of a Black teenager who'd been restrained on the ground on his stomach, shackled and handcuf
