PSU vs Georgia (Penn State Athletic Communications )

Sour Ending

  • Penn State

  • Georgia


Jan. 1, 1983: This was the last game for the greatest Bulldog, and the guy some would argue was the greatest college player ever: Herschel Walker. Georgia had gone 33-2 with Herschel in silver britches, including winning the 1980 national title. The No. 1 Dawgs were 11-0 and headed into what most believed would be a coronation in the Sugar Bowl. But instead of capping off a dynastic run, Georgia's defense surrendered more points than it had since 1979. And beloved coach Vince Dooley never again came close to winning a title.
