Sooners fall to Georgia in overtime classic in the Rose Bowl

13 January 2018

And fittingly, it was two of those seniors who put the Dawgs in the national championship game.

Regardless of the styles of team's they've faced, Georgia has proven it can win any type of game be it a shootout or a low scoring, grind-it-out contest.

As it turns out, no one did a great job of containing anyone's offense.

Mayfield and company responded when running back Rodney Anderson ran for three straight plays, eventually ending up in the end zone to retake the lead, 14-7.

When Bellamy was yelling at the Sooner quarterback after the game, Mayfield didn't acknowledge the linebacker. Yet coach Lincoln Riley's play-calling didn't give Mayfield every chance to shine, and the coach acknowledged it afterward. "They showed true character today".

Until the overtime periods, this game was all about offense.

United Nations human rights office calls Donald Trump's immigration slur 'racist'
Gimenez's dropping Miami-Dade's "sanctuary" protections for immigration offenders prompted Trump to call him "Strong!" in a tweet. The two people spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly discuss the Oval Office meeting.

At first, it looked like it was going to be the Oklahoma Sooners. But a questionable kickoff decision gave Georgia a chance to score.

Georgia did arrive back early Tuesday morning and the first order was to rest before getting back to practice Wednesday afternoon.

"He's doing a great job of understanding coverages, calling out fronts and making checks", Smart said of Fromm two weeks ago.

The former walk-on went 34-6 while spending three seasons as the Sooners' starter, but he couldn't push them to the championship game in Atlanta next week. Michel's run was the Bulldogs' seventh for more than 20 yards all game. While Mayfield possesses incredible leadership traits, his antics sometimes overshadow the positive things he brings to the table, raising a red flag for National Football League teams in the process. He can also catch it and get some points on the board as a receiver.

Georgia trailed 31-17 at halftime.

Oklahoma was not going to go away quietly, of course.

Trump signals he could endorse immigration deal
Some other lawmakers who have been engaged in the negotiations were also optimistic; others said no deal had yet been reached. The DACA program is about to run out for so-called " dreamers " or young immigrants who came to the US illegally as minors.

Georgia averaged 9.3 yards per carry and totaled 527 yards offense, the most OU has surrendered since November 4 at Oklahoma State. That produced the first overtime game in College Football Playoff history. The Sooners then recaptured the lead shortly after on a 46-yard scoop-and-score off a Michel fumble. Tae Crowder pounced on a poor squib kick to give Georgia the ball at midfield. Win. No Clemson rusher had more than 22 yards, and only half of quarterback Kelly Bryant's passes found their target.

Chubb ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns. They played their hearts out and left it all on the field.

And when Oklahoma needed to get back to its aggressive attack, Mayfield tried to do too much. But rather than push the ball downfield, the Sooners played it safe and had to punt. "You gotta come play football with the big boys".

Both teams settled for field goals in the first overtime, first Georgia's Rodrigo Blankenship from 38 to make it 48-45. But when they tried to kick another in the second it was blocked. "To see them racing down the field, I mean, it really embodies what this team is about".

"We've won games around here, so we know how to handle situations like this", said Michel, who scored the game-winning touchdown on a direct snap.
