According to CFP officials, the trophy is handmade from 24k gold, bronze and stainless steel, and is 36.5 inches tall. The gold piece is 24.5 inches by itself.

Every year, a new trophy is made. The Bulldogs will keep this National Championship trophy for permanent display on campus. 

Georgia beat Alabama 33-18 in the title game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. It was redemption for the Dawgs who lost to the Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship last month, and lost to them in the 2018 National Championship Game. It is the school's first football championship since 1980.
