Rushing duo carries Bulldogs over Oklahoma in epic Rose Bowl finish

The Georgia and Oklahoma helmets sit on a table during press conferences by the teams for the Rose Bowl Game on Thursday

The Heisman Trophy victor couldn't convert those opportunities, and plenty of Sooners fans wished Mayfield had been given a whole lot more chances to conjure his usual magic during Georgia's epic 54-48, double-overtime win Monday night.

The Rose Bowl twitter account shared the awesome moment as the Bulldog players realize they will be heading home to play for a title in Atlanta in the coming days. Along with a fairly steady performance by freshman quarterback Jake Fromm, who overcame first-half jitters to complete 20 of 29 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns, it was enough to overcome the high-scoring Sooners.

Georgia scored the first three touchdowns of the second half and Fromm's 4-yard scoring pass to Javon Wims gave the Bulldogs their first lead, 38-31, with 13:47 remaining. Sooners coach Lincoln Riley decided not to go for it, and Austin Seibert made his 33-yard kick. Mayfield will make plays, and Oklahoma will score points. After Georgia made its first trip to the Rose Bowl since 1943 a rousing, heart-stopping success, the Bulldogs will play for their first national title since 1980.

Georgia: The Bulldogs came in with the sixth-best defense in the country, but Mayfield and the Sooners sliced it up in the first half, including a nifty reverse pass to the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback that made it 31-14 with 6 seconds left in the second quarter.

Ms Garner became a prominent member of the Black Lives Matter movement following her father's death. Doctors said the pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which was later found to be enlarged.

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. "Know it'll be a great challenge for us".

"He's just such a good athlete", Smart said. Two short completions on conservative plays only got the Sooners in position for a field goal that was blocked by Georgia's Lorenzo Carter. College football added overtime in 1996.

Either a Pac-12 or Big Ten team had appeared in every edition of the Rose Bowl for the past half-century since the formation of the then-Pacific-8 Conference - except after the 2001 season, when the Rose Bowl became the BCS national championship game for a year. "That was just kind of always one of those places that you kind of put on the bucket list as far as, want to go to that game one day, be involved in that game one day". OR scored 41 points in the secondhalf of the 2014 season's Rose Bowl semifinal against Florida State.
