Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett said "it's pretty apparent" the No. 1 Bulldogs can play better than they did Saturday in their 42-41 win against Ohio State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, a motivating factor as they prepare to face No. 3 TCU at SoFi Stadium on Monday in Los Angeles (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN and ESPN App).

Bennett said Tuesday one of the reasons he flourished in the fourth quarter was because he had to, as Georgia trailed 38-24. He completed 10 of 12 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the most passing yards in the final quarter in CFP history. The pressure was on after Georgia opened the second half with two three-and-outs.

"Who knows what the reason was, but it does have to be fixed," said Bennett, who also threw an interception against the Buckeyes. "We're trying to be perfect. And we're trying to do everything that we can to make every play perfect. And when it's not -- win or lose -- we're not happy with it."

It's a message that was sent immediately after the clock expired on Saturday night, after Georgia was shut out in the third quarter, converted just 2 of 10 third downs, and the defense didn't have an answer for Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud. Georgia will face another Heisman Trophy finalist in TCU quarterback Max Duggan as the Bulldogs look to become the first program to win back-to-back national championships since Alabama in 2011-12.
