Mighty Mayfield can't propel Oklahoma to win in Rose Bowl

  • NORMAN OK – NOVEMBER 25 Running back Rodney Anderson

Georgia will play in the national championship game January 8 in Atlanta against the victor of Monday night's Sugar Bowl matchup between top-ranked Clemson and No. 4 Alabama.

The matchup was determined by the final College Football Playoff rankings, which are made by a 13-member committee of five former coaches, four athletic directors, two former administrators, a college president and a former sports reporter. "He stretches and extends plays, extremely explosive, not afraid to make any throws".

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.

"It's just the competitive nature that's in us that keeps us pushing each other to be better", he said.

The Sooners were up 31-14, having scored on a trick play that resulted in quarterback Baker Mayfield catching a two-yard touchdown pass from receiver CeeDee Lamb with six seconds on the clock.

Line/Spread: The over/under for the 2018 College Football Playoff game is 60.

For a second it appeared that Georgia had set itself up a chance to go for the win right there when Deandre Baker picked off Baker Mayfield, only to have the play waved off when Jonathan Ledbetter jumped offside.

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

These two teams were very almost flawless.

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

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. 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. "You know, an epic Rose Bowl game". "It kind of seems like a dream".

Oklahoma played in the Rose Bowl once before - on January 1, 2003, beating Washington State 34-14.

Combined with an equally multifaceted run game - featuring a trio of running backs in Rodney Anderson, Trey Sermon and Abdul Adams - Oklahoma's variety will test a Georgia defense led by All-American linebacker Roquan Smith. OR scored 41 points in the secondhalf of the 2014 season's Rose Bowl semifinal against Florida State. Joe's claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he's predicted the correct national championship game twice... and picked the wrong victor both times. You can imagine how that went.
