After leading the Georgia Bulldogs to their first national championship since 1980 on Monday, quarterback Stetson Bennett had one more thing to offer Bulldogs fans: chicken fingers.
The MVP of the College Football Playoff National Championship victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide handed out hundreds of chicken finger meals to surprised University of Georgia students during a Raising Cane drive-thru on Thursday in Athens, Georgia. The restaurant chain‘s location near the school’s campus was the first to open in Georgia.
Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is a fast food restaurant headquartered in another SEC city (Baton Rouge, Louisiana), known for its chicken fingers and famous “cane sauce”.
Bennett threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns against the Crimson Tide, helping the Bulldogs win the championship game 33-18. It was a form of revenge for Georgia, who had previously lost to Bama 41-24 in the SEC Championship game.
Bennett, 24, said he plans to return for his sixth season of college football. For which school exactly, he has not yet decided.
“I’m going to play football next year. We’ll see where,” Bennet said in an interview with “hello america” Tuesday.
