Three takeaways from Georgia's Rose Bowl overtime win

Lincoln Riley Made a Indefensible Mistake By Not Trusting Baker Mayfield

But the Heisman Trophy victor could not get the Sooners into the end zone in the first overtime when a touchdown would have ended the game.

Mayfield was limited in practice and skipped Rose Bowl-related social and media activities.

Georgia's defense is taking no comfort in Mayfield's condition. The Bulldogs had a total of 527 to the Sooners' 531. He was swarmed by his teammates after the touchdown run. Riley stuck to his guns a bit too much with the game on the line as Mayfield threw just three passes for 13 yards in overtime. As the late Cubs baseball Hall of Famer Ernie Banks used to say, "Let's play two". "In our case that was probably the greatest challenge was not accepting what had been done before as the norm and convincing the players that are now on the team that we can do better".

The Sooner defense couldn't stop Georgia from a game-tying 59-yard touchdown march, as the Dawgs pushed across a critical score with just 55 seconds remaining, which was enough to send the game to overtime.

Even so, Riley gave Stoops a vote of confidence on Wednesday morning.

Just a few plays into the second quarter, Mayfield gave the ball to Rodney Anderson, who ran for 41 yards to the end zone.

First half dominance, however, belonged to Oklahoma.

The Bulldogs made some effective defensive tweaks at halftime, which led to Mayfield's dusting himself off frequently after getting sacked. We tackled a little better, and we played a little more aggressive. It wasn't like there was a magic sprinkle dust.

Oklahoma (12-2) took momentum early, building a 31-14 lead while scoring on five of its first six possessions.

VOTE: Did Oklahoma beat itself with its overtime play calling?
We ran to the ball better.

Oklahoma finally found the end zone again with 8:47 left in the fourth quarter, as Mayfield ran and threw his team back into a tie on an 11-yard toss to Dimitri Flowers.

"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.

Georgia's Rodrigo Blankenship kicked a 38-yard field goal on the opening possession of the first overtime.

Also added to the roster are Bruno Mars and Cardi B , who will presumably perform their recent " Finesse " remix collab. The Grammys will be hosted by James Corden and take place at New York's Madison Square Garden on Sunday, January 28th .

While both are considered top-10 running back prospects for the 2018 NFL Draft by some, Chubb garnered most of the attention out of the two during their collegiate careers.

For the Sooners, it was a wrenching end to a remarkable season.

Mayfield battled flu-like symptoms all week but said he felt fine. "I just want to enjoy the win".

PASADENA, Calif. - For three seasons, Baker Mayfield dazzled, dodged, darted and danced his way into Oklahoma lore.

"There were a lot of mistakes, which happens in the good games and the bad games", Mayfield said. "It's been a wild ride".

Coach Lincoln Riley instructed kicker Austin Seibert to squib the ensuing kickoff so as to avoid a potential return.

"It was close", he said.

"This is why we came back, us four".

He opted for the safer choice, and moments later he and his team had been defeated.

Georgia linebacker Davin Bellamy had some words for Baker Mayfield after the Bulldogs iced a double-overtime win over the Sooners.

Then came an update: The recipient had been switched to Michel.

Mayfield's voice was cracking, a result of his week-long sickness, but he made sure reporters knew it didn't bother him and fatigue didn't play a factor.
