After the Dawgs captured the national championship, UGA legend and 1980 national champion Herschel Walker offered a few words on the big playoff finale.
Now running for a U.S. Senate seat, Walker first made a name for himself on the field. A Georgia Bulldogs standout, Walker would go on to earn the Heisman Trophy and All-American honors -- ultimately championing the Dawgs to a 1980 national title as one of the nation's top running backs.
Following the Bulldogs' stunning 33-18 victory over Alabama for their first national championship in 41 years, Walker took to Twitter to offer his congratulations to the team. The Dawgs also broke a 15-year drought against one of the nation's top teams Monday night, as Georgia had not defeated Alabama since 2007.
