Who is TCU playing in College Football Playoff National Championship Game?

TCU defeated Michigan in the 2022 Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Eve. Here’s who they will play next for the national championship.

The 2022-23 College Football Playoff started out with a bang on New Year’s Eve with the No. 3 TCU Horned Frogs upsetting the No. 2 Michigan Wolverines to advance to the CFP National Championship Game on Monday, January 9.

With the victory, Max Duggan and TCU will advance to play the No. 1-seeded Georgia Bulldogs to determine the national champion.

Georgia opens as a heavy 13.5-point favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook and it comes as no surprise for this matchup to have a double-digit line likely. This would be just the fifth time the two programs clashed since 1942. The Horned Frogs are winless in four matchups, with their most recent tilt ending in a 31-23 loss to the Dawgs in the 2016 Liberty Bowl. That game marked Georgia head coach Kirby Smart’s first bowl victory with his program, so this will be a full-circle moment.

If TCU can somehow upset their next opponent and win a national championship, it’d be their first title since 1938.
