Watch Sen. Johnny Isakson pay tribute to UGA, Bulldogs on Senate floor

Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson took a moment on the Senate floor Thursday morning to pay tribute to the University of Georgia and the Rose Bowl Champion football team after their win over Oklahoma on New Year’s Day.

Isakson spoke highly of coach Kirby Smart, running back Sony Michel and linebacker Roquam Smith and their leadership that contributed to the 54-48 win over Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl.

“I wish Alabama a lot of luck on Monday night, but not enough to beat my Georgia Bulldogs,” Isakson said.

Georgia faces Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship game Monday at 8 p.m. at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
