VIDEO: Georgia fans welcome Bulldogs back to Athens

Georgia fans woke up early Tuesday and braved the freezing temperature to welcome the Rose Bowl-winning Bulldogs back to Athens.

After being down 31-17 at the half in Pasadena, Calif., the No. 3 Bulldogs rallied behind their run game and relentless defense to defeat No. 2 Oklahoma and Heisman winner Baker Mayfield in double-overtime, 54-48.

Georgia will face Alabama on Monday night in the College Football Playoff Championship game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
