UGA wins Rose Bowl, heading to national championship game

Adjust Comment Print

Just like he had done a few weeks ago following their SEC championship win, Quavo once again gave the Georgia Bulldogs some added motivation to pull out a hard fought victory Monday against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Rose Bowl.

There are only three or four big-name quarterbacks coming out of college this season, including Mayfield, but the demand for a franchise quarterback in the National Football League is immensely high. Sony, could I ask you what it was like on that last run?

Q. What was going through your mind?

But on this day in Southern California, it was Sony Michel.

"Oh, I'm sure he'll be in that game", said Roquan Smith, Georgia's star linebacker. "That was the stretch of the game that I was probably most disappointed in".

But if it was a measure of heart attack, I'd be on the Rector scale pretty high. You really got after Baker. When he touched the ball for the third time, Georgia trailed 21-7. What was different after halftime? We tackled a little better, and we played a little more aggressive.

That was figuring how to cope with spending a bowl week on the West Coast and turn around in one week's worth of time to play a national championship game. An opening appeared in the right side of Oklahoma's defense.

It was a Big 12 kind of game. He wanted to ensure he understood what the play was. Oklahoma has a great defense. We just had to keep pounding.

Mayfield battled flu-like symptoms all week but said he felt fine.

Even though all the momentum rested with Oklahoma at the half, opportunistic plays by Georgia made it a punch/counterpunch battle between two gladiators down the stretch. But I don't know that was it.

"They can say what they want, they won the game", Mayfield said. Two years later, Chubb ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns and became the only of the three to earn a national title berth. They were there by themselves to recruit the same player. "We knew we needed to spark our offense, to let them know, 'We can do this'". His only deep shot into the end zone came on a free play and was intercepted.

He had been excellent all game, the senior running back. Your emotions during that time? They come to all the meetings. "They were able to steal three points on us". "They showed true character today". I don't think losing this game will have an impact on Mayfield.

Mayfield came through on nearly every promise he made at Oklahoma.

However, the Bulldogs made one mistake. "People better remember that too". But Jake continues to grow as a player.

If not for Carter's right claw, we would still be there all night.

I don't know that there's one thing. I mean, it's tough. It will be good to see him. And not just Michel, Chubb, D'Andre Swift and the others on the team. There were some questionable play calls and protection issues, as well. "He reminds me of Brett Favre, because he makes all the throws, he's mobile and he can improvise on the run". Letting the ball go farther would have pushed the Bulldogs out of field-goal range with only 6 seconds left before intermission. He told him to hurry up. There's something about playing for OU, and the atmosphere is something you can only dream of. Did you feel that? "My team just had faith in me", said Michel, who did all that damage on just 11 carries. We expected that from a great Oklahoma team. We played a little better in the second half.
