The best of the 2022 Georgia college football season

Take a look at some of the best plays that contributed to the Georgia Bulldogs’ perfect 2022 football season.

Athens, Georgia – Georgia’s national football team declined an invitation to visit the White House.

According to a statement from the Georgia Athletic Association on Tuesday, the Bulldogs will not be able to attend the June 12 event along with other college teams at the White House. President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden called the event “College Athlete’s Day.”

The statement from Georgia says the team’s schedule conflicts with the proposed date provided in an invitation received earlier this month.

“On May 3, the University of Georgia first received an invitation to the Bulldogs football team to visit the White House on June 12,” the statement read. “Unfortunately, the proposed date is not possible due to the student-athlete calendar and time of year. However, we appreciate the invitation and look forward to other opportunities for Georgia teams moving forward.”

Georgia did not provide more details about the conflict schedule.

Some professional league teams, including the 2021 Atlanta Braves, have made visits to the White House during the Biden administration. This year’s NCAA men’s and women’s basketball teams from UConn and LSU, respectively, are scheduled to visit the White House on May 26.

Coach Kirby Smart and quarterback Stetson Bennett led Georgia to its second straight national championship with a quick 65-7 victory over TCU.
