Watch: Michigan fans leave Orange Bowl early after getting blown out by Georgia

Once the Georgia Bulldogs extended their lead in the second half of the Orange Bowl, a lot of Michigan Wolverines fans left Hard Rock Stadium.

The honeymoon has ended for the Michigan Wolverines. They defeated their hated rivals in the Ohio State Buckeyes and won the Big Ten Championship by blowing out the Iowa Hawkeyes to clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff. Then, the Orange Bowl began, where they were outmatched by the Georgia Bulldogs.

Once Georgia picked up a 34-3 lead in the fourth quarter, a lot of Michigan fans in attendance at Hard Rock Stadium decided to beat the traffic.

Things were already out of hand for the Wolverines, as they trailed 27-3 entering halftime. That is due to two touchdown passes from Bulldogs quarterback Stetson Bennett and a throw from running back Kenny McIntosh to Adonai Mitchell in the end zone. That very score remained intact…until the fourth quarter.

After forcing Michigan to turn the ball over on downs, Bennett hit running back James Cook for a 39-yard touchdown pass.

To be fair, Michigan did carry a ton of momentum heading into the Orange Bowl. But, Georgia was ranked No.1 in the nation for the majority of the 2021 season for a reason. The Wolverines learned that firsthand.
