Less than four minutes into regulation, Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett ran 21 yards for the game’s first score after the Bulldogs quickly forced TCU to a quick three-and-out on their opening possession.
After a TCU turnover, Georgia added a field goal shortly after.
In their subsequent drive, the Horned Frogs showed flashes of life as quarterback Max Duggan guided his team down the field for a touchdown, capped by a long throw of 60 yards to wide receiver Derius Davis.
Minutes later, though, Georgia would strike back when Bennett hit Ladd McConkey for a touchdown pass of 37 yards.
Bennett, a 25-year-old senior, scored on a rushing play to give the Bulldogs a 23-7 lead in the second quarter.
Late in the first half, Kendall Milton scored again on the ground before Georgia scored again after an interception.
