Rushing duo carries Bulldogs over Oklahoma in epic Rose Bowl finish

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia experienced a three-hour time difference in its recent trip to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

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.

Chubb had 145 yards rushing.

Lorenzo Carter blocked Seibert's 27-yard field goal attempt in the second overtime.

"That's what he do: Notre Dame game (Sept. 9), sack fumble; Auburn game (SEC Championship on December 2), he stripped it; and then in the final four", said linebacker Davin Bellamy. "It's a torch that's been passed down".

"There was a lot of excitement, but our ultimate goal was to get to the national championship, and I think that's everybody's focus", Michel said. There were 11 guys just executing the play, and everybody did their job. Probably the same people, who after the Big 12 championship game, when we hold down a good TCU offense and beat them twice in a row and win that, then everybody is singing your praises. Eight yards were gained and the ball punted back to Georgia for a game-tying touchdown drive. The Bulldogs were able to execute a 55-yard field goal to close out the half.

Q. It looked like things changed in the third quarter when you kind of went to a four-three instead of a three-four?

Illness, Iowa pose challenges for Illini
The Wolverines' mark was above their season average of 0.155, while the Fighting Illini's was below their season average of 0.265. Jordan Bohannon also has 12.1 PPG with 5.0 APG, and Luka Garza is in double-digits as well for Iowa on 10.2 PPG and 6.2 RPG.

Michel and his running mate Nick Chubb were awesome for Georgia.

Georgia allowed one offensive touchdown in the second half and limited the offense directed by Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Baker Mayfield to 171 yards in the final two quarters and overtime. "Words can't describe what he's meant to me".

Mayfield was 23 of 35 for 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while Sooners running back Rodney Anderson rushed for 201 yards and two touchdowns. The Sooners had rolled to 31 first-half points, when it felt like they could score nearly at will. A double-reserve on which Lamb found a wide-open Mayfield in the corner of the end zone gave the Sooners a three-possession lead, with no signs of slowing down.

"Sony came up to us and he was like, 'y'all keep doing what y'all do".

Credit to Kirby Smart for getting his team to play on fire in the second half. Mayfield was exceptional, especially in the first half when the Bulldogs struggled to get pressure on him. With the Bulldogs already leading by three points, Riley made a decision to kick on fourth and 1 from the Georgia 16 instead of putting the game in Mayfield's hands. "No one in this locker room stopped believing. You know, man, we're Running Back U. We always have the best backs". "Offense, we feel like we hang with anybody". Michel's long run concluded a scoring frenzy at the start of the game that featured five touchdowns in the first 16 minutes. "Let's just finish this season off right". "It's a hell of a college football game". First, Georgia's Rodrigo Blankenship hit from 38 to make it 48-45.

Then fresh wrinkles appeared in the third quarter.

Sure, these two guys are extremely talented and might end up being chosen above Mayfield in the draft, but the Heisman trophy victor has something more than Darnold and Rosen: passion. But it's a very familiar opponent, Alabama, also of the SEC. But it's appropriate that the game's three biggest plays came from Georgia seniors that embraced Smart's process, trumpeted the culture change and turned down chances at the National Football League to build toward this moment.
