Lincoln Riley Made a Indefensible Mistake By Not Trusting Baker Mayfield

UGA Football Rose Bowl Practice

The Bulldogs will play Alabama on January 8 for the national championship in Atlanta, about 90 miles from their campus - with a chance to win their first national title since 1980. They'd witnessed 102 total points, 1,058 total yards and the first overtimes in both the history of the Rose Bowl and the College Football Playoff.

Smart said there was no "magic sprinkle dust". I don't think losing this game will have an impact on Mayfield. The team that played good offense and good defense won.

Together, what Georgia's running backs did was combine on one of the best rushing performances this new-fangled College Football Playoff have ever seen.

Here are three takeaways from Georgia's Rose Bowl win to advance to the national championship. On the next play, running back Nick Chubb took off on a 50-yard touchdown run that brought Georgia within seven, 31-24.

The pass and point-after kick tied the score 38-38 and the Sooners took the lead about two minutes later when linebacker Caleb Kelly upended Michel, dislodging the ball that bounced into the hands of strong safety Steven Parker, who took it 46 yards for a touchdown.

Four plays later, Sony Michel fumbled, and the Sooners retook the lead, 45-38. He certainly redeemed himself in the second overtime period when he scored from 27-yards out for the go-ahead touchdown.

"Our return team practiced squib kicks in Athens because we knew [Oklahoma] had done that this year", Georgia special teams coach Shane Beamer said.

But Mayfield also threw an interception early in the fourth quarter deep in Oklahoma territory, which set up Georgia's first lead of the game. The Heisman Trophy victor posted a sweet snap with Mayberry on Instagram back in September. But the Sooners, who confounded Georgia for 360 yards in the first half, were held to 29 yards in the third quarter as the Bulldogs forged a 31-31 tie. Next, Georgia's defense impressively, steadily and largely solved that brain-spinning puzzle. But, no, I will never say one play in particular.

Georgia linebacker Davin Bellamy repeatedly yelled "humble yourself" at Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield following the Bulldogs' 54-48 double overtime win in the Rose Bowl Monday night.

"We played with passion, we played with energy, we played with enthusiasm", Smart said. Absolutely, yes. Was it everything we wanted it to be? No. "We knew each and every blow we took in the first half was going to pay off for us in the second half".

Chubb and Michel combined for 326 yards rushing and five touchdowns. Smart, referring to Chubb's and Michel's jersey numbers, said "27, 1 put this team on their shoulders".

"Straight beasts, man", said the Los Angeles Rams running back and former first-round pick out of Georgia who wore a red cap with a Georgia "G" on it.

"I love him", said Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley. "Sony is awesome and made a heck of a play after that".

That meant all Georgia needed was a field goal of their own in double overtime. He just didn't hit it well and ended up going right to their guy, which that's the one thing you can't do and we did. Of course, a lot of our guys were getting exhausted early in the night, so they wanted to go to bed earlier, and their bodies were naturally getting up earlier. "We had a long game and after the fumble, we went down and he made up for it with that run to win the game". Probably just overall as a team how we played there coming out of halftime.
