Georgia has controlled nearly all of the CFP title game, but the Bulldogs didn’t have a dominant play on defense until Bulldog defensive tackle Trenton Thompson made his presence known in the second half.
Thompson completely flattened Alabama receiver Cam Sims as he tried to weave through Georgia defenders.
Here’s a look:

That one had to hurt.
Sims popped back up and didn’t appear to be too hurt, but he might be feeling that one on Tuesday morning.
It didn’t hurt Alabama’s drive much, as the Tide got into the red zone again but had to settle for a field goal.
Georgia is looking to clinch its first National Championship since 1980. If the Bulldogs are able to get it done, expect Thompson’s hit to be on highlight reels of this game for years to come.
