UGA wins Rose Bowl, heading to national championship game

The Georgia and Oklahoma helmets sit on a table during press conferences by the teams for the Rose Bowl Game on Thursday CFP: Georgia outlasts Oklahoma in double overtime classic
Andrew Cummings | 02 January, 2018, 11:47

Chubb and Michel, both seniors, combined for 326 yards and five touchdowns rushing.

Oklahoma attempted only that single shovel pass during its first overtime possession, which went nowhere and resulted in a field goal. After D'Andre Swift was tackled for a two-yard loss on Georgia's first play of the second overtime, Michel found the edge on the outside for a 27-yard touchdown run.

Georgia will face the victor of the Sugar Bowl in the national championship. Monday's game is played on a neutral field at Rose Bowl Stadium - but after a hiatus of 74 years since the Bulldogs last appeared in the Rose Bowl, Georgia fans eager to make the trek to California could make it a de facto home game. That game kicked off after a 15-minute delay to see if the Rose Bowl would wrap up in time. Get the app and get the game. And one more thing: Don't discount the OU defense - Georgia's run game is exactly the kind of offense Mike Stoops loves to scheme for.

The Sugar and Rose winners meet in Atlanta on January 8.

The Bulldogs (12-1) rode that stifling defense to the program's first Southeastern Conference championship since 2005 - a familiar formula for second-year head coach Kirby Smart, who is actually making his third appearance in the playoff. After claiming their 13th SEC crown, they're chasing their first national championship since 1980.

Erica Garner, Daughter of Eric Garner Dies at 27
She had been hospitalized in Brooklyn, New York, after she reportedly went into cardiac arrest nearly a week ago. Snipes said Garner had a heart attack after an asthma episode and was placed in a medically induced coma.

Seibert kicked a 33-yarder and the Bulldogs and Sooners played on, but not for much longer. "Have a ton of respect for him, the coach he is, the team that they have". Two short completions on conservative plays only got the Sooners in position for a field goal that was blocked by Georgia's Lorenzo Carter.

Georgia: The Bulldogs came in with the sixth-best defense in the country, but Mayfield and the Sooners sliced it up in the first half, including a nifty reverse pass to the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback that made it 31-14 with 6 seconds left in the second quarter. Smith and company just played better. Mayfield will make plays, and Oklahoma will score points. "It's really nearly like when you watch Brett Favre back in the day". "It's a hell of a college football game".

These two teams were very almost ideal.

Georgia trailed 31-17 at halftime. Miami won the national title in that memorable edition with a 37-14 victory over Nebraska, which was in the Big 12 at the time. "My team just had faith in me", said Michel, who did all that damage on just 11 carries and got a hug from former Bulldogs great tailback Garrison Hearst after scoring the winning TD. The Sooners got into the game because Big Ten champion Ohio State earned a spot in the national title game.

When Smart was an assistant at Alabama, the Crimson Tide beat Texas in the BCS championship game in January 2010. OR scored 41 points in the secondhalf of the 2014 season's Rose Bowl semifinal against Florida State.
