Rankings from AP Poll
The 1941 Georgia Bulldogs football team represented the Georgia Bulldogs of the University of Georgia during the 1941 college football season. Early in the season, halfback Frank Sinkwich suffered a broken jaw, and had to play with his jaw wired shut and a large jaw protector attached to his helmet. Despite this Sinkwich was selected All-American, leading the Bulldogs to an Orange Bowl victory. The 19–3 victory over Florida included from Sinkwich a 22-yard touchdown run, a field goal (the first for Georgia since 1924), and another 1-yard score.
