The tone was set from the start.

It was supposed to be the biggest non-conference game of the 2021 season, and in terms of intensity it lived up to the billing. The offense didn’t do much in the 10-3 win over Clemson, but the defense came up with a pick six, didn’t allow a touchdown, and the program’s first national championship run since 1980 was off and rolling.

The D didn’t allow more than 13 points in any of the first nine games, gave up 17 to Tennessee, and finished the regular season giving up fewer than 14 in 11 of 12 games.

And then Alabama went off. The Dawgs lost the SEC Championship, but came back and rolled against Michigan in the College Football Playoff semifinal before getting revenge on the Crimson Tide with one final great defensive performance in the 33-18 win for the national championship.

Bowls don’t matter? Auburn, Florida, and Missouri all lost their bowl games to finish with losing seasons. Had they all won, the Georgia wins would’ve been more impressive – they all would’ve been Quality Wins – and 2021 would’ve been much, much higher in the Season Ranking list.

Wins (14): Clemson (10-3), UAB (56-7), South Carolina (40-13), at Vanderbilt (62-0), Arkansas (37-0), at Auburn (34-10), Kentucky (30-13), Florida (34-7), Missouri (43-6), at Tennessee (41-17), Charleston Southern (56-7), at Georgia Tech (45-0), Michigan (34-11, Orange Bowl/College Football Playoff), Alabama (33-18, College Football Playoff National Championship)

Losses (1): Alabama (41-24, SEC Championship)

Quality Wins (8): Clemson, UAB, South Carolina, Arkansas, Kentucky, at Tennessee, Michigan (Orange Bowl), Alabama (CFP National Championship)

Elite Wins (3): Clemson, Michigan (Orange Bowl), Alabama (CFP National Championship)

Bad Wins (3): at Vanderbilt, Charleston Southern, at Georgia Tech

Points For: 579
Points Against: 153
