  • NORMAN OK – NOVEMBER 25 Running back Rodney Anderson

Georgia will advance to the national championship game with a 54-48 double overtime victory over Oklahoma in Rose Bowl.

Georgia defensive line vs. Oklahoma offensive line - Houston defensive lineman Ed Oliver shared his thoughts on the OU pass protection in early December, saying, "You can get at (Mayfield)".

The Rose Bowl twitter account shared the awesome moment as the Bulldog players realize they will be heading home to play for a title in Atlanta in the coming days. Chubb is second on the SEC's all-time rushing list and sits at 1,175 yards on the ground this season while Michel is 52 yards away from 1,000, and both have rushed for 13 touchdowns. Along with a fairly steady performance by freshman quarterback Jake Fromm, who overcame first-half jitters to complete 20 of 29 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns, it was enough to overcome the high-scoring Sooners. 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.

Seibert kicked a 33-yarder and the Bulldogs and Sooners played on, but not for much longer. "He stretches and extends plays, extremely explosive, not afraid to make any throws". After Georgia made its first trip to the Rose Bowl since 1943 a rousing, heart-stopping success, the Bulldogs will play for their first national title since 1980.

After a long wait, the Georgia Bulldogs will return to the field shortly to fight for the right to play for the national championship.

"Man, we stunk it up and played really bad", Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said.

"It's just the competitive nature that's in us that keeps us pushing each other to be better", he said. Two short completions on conservative plays only got the Sooners in position for a field goal that was blocked by Georgia's Lorenzo Carter.

"He's just such a good athlete", Smart said.

Auburn was responsible for Georgia's only loss, a 40-17 defeat on November 11, but the Bulldogs avenged it in the SEC title game.

Spenser Davis: There are several different individual matchups that could play a big role in this game, and Georgia has the edge in a lot of them.

"I can always remember watching it, hearing Keith Jackson call it, and it seems like it was always a great game", said Riley, who is from Texas. That game was at the Rose Bowl, although it wasn't the official Rose Bowl game, which was between Ohio State and OR that season.
