CFP: Georgia outlasts Oklahoma in double overtime classic

The Latest Georgia gets ball first

The Georgia Bulldogs take on the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2018 Rose Bowl on Monday, Jan. 1.

But Lorenzo Carter would save the Bulldogs, when he blocked a field goal setting up Michel to play hero, which he did by taking a direct snap and shooting 27 yards around the left side for the game-winning score. Additional overtime periods are played if the score is tied at the end of overtime.

After a long wait, the Georgia Bulldogs will return to the field shortly to fight for the right to play for the national championship. For Georgia, the win would mean playing for a national title for the first time since the 1983 Sugar Bowl.

Coach Kirby Smart said the defense "stunk it up" in the first half, but there were no dramatic changes in the second. The Sooners defense allowed 144.2 yards on the ground and gave up 20 or fewer points three times in their last four games. 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. "He stretches and extends plays, extremely explosive, not afraid to make any throws". 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. Because of that intangibles advantage and historic offensive firepower, the Sooners have a great shot to emerge victorious in the Rose Bowl. "We knew each and every blow we took in the first half was going to pay off for us in the second half".

"I've been able to keep up with them a little bit throughout the year, and Coach Smart's done obviously a tremendous job with that group in such a short amount of time", Sooners coach Lincoln Riley said.

Pope Tawadros II says that since 2013 there have been 37 sectarian attacks on Christians in Egypt, almost one incident per month. Police later cordoned off the crime scene as onlookers crowded around the church, while a forensics team combed the area.

Following a 9-yard pass to Terry Godwin, out trotted Rodrigo Blankenship to squeak in a 55-yard field goal - a Rose Bowl record - to make the halftime score 31-17.

"We had to believe", Fromm said of the Bulldogs effort in the second OT.

Oklahoma won its third consecutive Big 12 title on Saturday with a 41-17 victory over TCU, punctuating an incredible debut season for Riley, the youngest coach in the FBS at 34 years old.

But with a chance to close out the game with 3:22 left in the fourth, Georgia freshman quarterback Jake Fromm led a game-tying drive. OR scored 41 points in the secondhalf of the 2014 season's Rose Bowl semifinal against Florida State.
