However, it was a collection of momentum-swinging plays by the Bulldogs that helped erase a 17-point first-half hole against the Sooners and Heisman-winning quarterback Baker Mayfield in the playoff semifinal game. "I've thought about it for so long - the loss in 2015 to Clemson [in the College Football Playoff semifinal] for so long".

The teams would trade scores in the 4th quarter, but everyone knew this game was heading to overtime.

Second time: This was Georgia's second trip ever to the Rose Bowl. We've got a lot of, we've been going hard all year since we came together as a team. We've just got to move forward. "Let's just finish this season off right".

Linebacker Lorenzo Carter deflected the kick, setting up a Sony Michel rushing touchdown for the 54-48 win over Oklahoma.

Oddly, the two extra periods were dominated by defense, with both teams settling for field goals in the first extra period and the Sooners having their attempt blocked in the second, before Michel's final score. Keep chopping and, eventually, with enough individual victories on enough individual plays, we'll win the game.

It was a fitting ending, though sour as could be for Oklahoma. They said they'll have to take an afternoon nap in order to stay up for the game, which kicks off at 8 p.m.

He also points out that states that have legalized cannabis have benefited through increased tax revenue from sales. Vermont is poised to become the first state in the country to legalize marijuana through the legislative process.

I believe he's accurate, a good decision maker and ultra-competitive - those are three great traits in a league that's light on starting-caliber quarterbacks. "It's been a wild ride", said Mayfield with a hoarse voice before he started to cry. The Bulldogs would eventually tie the game up at 45 with a 2-yard rushing touchdown from Nick Chubb. "But to know it didn't end up the way we wanted it to is the toughest part". First, Georgia's Rodrigo Blankenship hit from 38 to make it 48-45. Then Beamer called a "side return" for punt returner Mecole Hardman that Hardman brought back to midfield.

The Georgia Bulldogs trailed by 17 points with almost half the game gone. The Bulldogs and Crimson Tide haven't played since October 3, 2015. He also caught his first career touchdown off a reverse pass with six seconds to go in the first half, which gave the Sooners a 31-14 lead.

"I think we got settled down some", Kirby Smart said.

In overtime, Oklahoma continued to play it safe rather than put the ball in Mayfield's hands.

The Bulldogs broke the deadlock just one minute into the final quarter, scoring their 21st unanswered point on four-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Jake Fromm to wide receiver Javon Wims. But he never made a mistake, completed most of his passes. Parker picked it up on the bounce, tight-roped the sideline and sprinted 46 yards for the score. 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. Mayfield finished 23-of-35 throwing for 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Yet Coach Lincoln Riley's play-calling didn't give Mayfield every chance to shine, which the coach acknowledged afterward.
