Georgia Knocks Off Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl to Advance

UGA Football Rose Bowl Preview

The first person to embrace Michel when he came off the field after the double-overtime victory was Garrison Hearst, the Doak Walker Award victor and Heisman Trophy finalist in 1992.

Mayfield was limited in practice and skipped Rose Bowl-related social and media activities.

Not too much earlier, the sun had set behind the San Gabriel Mountains overlooking the most magical view in college football.

Lincoln Riley went to a horribly conservative play-calling style in the second half, relying on running back Rodney Anderson and not attacking the Bulldogs down the field, something which was so successful in the first half.

It can hit a high mark with a win by Georgia (13-1) in its first national-title game appearance since the 1983 Sugar Bowl.

At first, it looked like it was going to be the Oklahoma Sooners.

The redshirt senior was 23-of-35 passing for 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in his final collegiate outing. On their first snap of the second half, Chubb ran 50 yards to make the score 31-24.

Defensive back Tony Brown played for Smart for two seasons.

Seconds after Mayfield's TD catch, Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley called for a squib kick in an effort to burn as numerous remaining 10 seconds off the clock as possible.

The first Rose Bowl since 2002 to feature neither the Pac-12 or Big Ten (cc Bleacher Report) will pit Mayfield's dual-threat talents against Georgia's high-powered running game, led by future National Football League back Nick Chubb.


In advance of Georgia's third-and-7 play from the Sooner 38, there was this from Herbstreit: "Don't forget about Michel out of the backfield".

Smart noted some alignment changes but attributed most of the transformation to his tacklers' simply being more aggressive.

Smart said there was no "magic sprinkle dust".

Georgia will be playing for the national championship thanks to an incredible series of plays in overtime of one of the best bowl games ever as it defeated Oklahoma 54-48 in the Rose Bowl. "He figured we were just going to [field the kickoff and] take a knee, so [head coach Kirby Smart] called the next play". On Clemson's first play after the ensuing kickoff, Alabama linebacker Mack Wilson caught a tipped pass from Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant and ran it back 18 yards for a score. The Sooners had taken a 45-38 lead when Steven Parker returned Michel's fumble for a TD with 6:52 left in the fourth.

The teams swapped field goals on their first possessions of the extra period, then Lorenzo Carter of Georgia blocked Austin Seibert's attempt on Oklahoma's second drive. They were run over for touchdowns on Oklahoma's first three possessions, rallied from a 31-14 deficit with 27 consecutive points while taking the lead, coughed it back, then ultimately won in double overtime because of - tada! - defense, a special-teams play, a great run.

For the Sooners, it was a wrenching end to a remarkable season. Riley could have decades of success in front of him.

"I felt fine", he said, a raspy voice partly belying his statement. "I just want to enjoy the win".

"I can't believe it's over". "It's been a wild ride".

"This decision was hard", said Riley, who became emotional during his weekly press conference, unable to speak for several seconds.

"It was close", he said. "My gut said to kick it". As confetti rained down on the field, an announcement in the press box identified the game's most valuable offensive player as Chubb.
