VIDEO: Shannon Sharpe thinks Georgia is ‘for real’ after Rose Bowl win

Former Denver Bronco and Savannah State football player Shannon Sharpe thinks the Georgia Bulldogs are for real.

After Georgia’s 54-48 win over Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl Monday, Sharpe began a segment on Fox Sports’ “Undisputed” by singing Georgia’s praises.

“The Georgia Bulldogs happened. That’s what happened.. The Georgia Bulldogs offense was for real,” Shape said when asked about Monday’s Rose Bowl game against Oklahoma. 

Sharpe, from Glennville, Ga., discussed how the better team won Monday night’s Rose Bowl game, quarterback Jake Fromm and how Georgia got back in the game after trailing 31-17 at the half.

“Give Georgia credit, they fell behind and ran themselves back into the ball game,” Sharpe said. “When you can carry the ball 25 times for 326 yards... If Oklahoma’s playing anyone else, I’m not so sure they’re able to overcome what happened to Georiga early, especially in that first half, but Georgia stayed the course.”

The Bulldogs went on to win the College Football Playoff Semifinal game, 54-48.

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

The game kicks off at 8 p.m. and can be watched on ESPN.
