3 bad calls went against Georgia in the National Championship within 2 quarters

A pair of missed calls in the second half impacted Georgia early in the second half against Alabama.

The first play was an Alabama punt on fourth-and-eight from its own 24. Georgia got a great jump on the play, and blocked the punt:

However, the Bulldogs were called for an offsides, and Alabama would re-kick with its gifted 5 yards.

After a Nick Chubb loss of 3 yards on first down, and a D’Andre Swift reception for a loss of 8, Georgia was faced with a third-and-21. Swift ran for just 4 yards on the play, but appeared to get his facemask pulled by an Alabama defender on the play:

Officials would miss the call, and Georgia was forced to punt on a fourth-and-14 from its own 29.

On the next drive, Alabama would go on a seven-play, 56-yard drive in two minutes thanks to the wheels of Tua Tagovailoa, completed with a touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs III.

The score made it a 13-7 game, and turned out to be an even worse break for Georgia than it initially seemed.

In the second half, Alabama caught another break.

On a second-and-five in the third quarter, Alabama’s Mack Wilson shoved Fromm in the back of the head after a sack.

The play should have been a penalty, and the officiating crew once again failed to make the call. The Bulldogs were up 20-10 at that point in the game.
