Baker Mayfield passed for 287 yards and two touchdowns with an interception and had a rare catch for a score for Oklahoma.

Tying the game on Michel's touchdown, a 38-yard run, before safety Dominick Sanders made the play of his career, picking off Mayfield with a return to the 5-yard line. At the same time, OU's offense couldn't seem to find its rhythm and struggled to move the ball.

The first Rose Bowl since 2002 to feature neither the Pac-12 or Big Ten (cc Bleacher Report) will pit Mayfield's dual-threat talents against Georgia's high-powered running game, led by future National Football League back Nick Chubb.

The next 17 minutes or so of game-time, however, were all about Georgia as the Bulldogs ran off three straight touchdowns to grab a 38-31 lead. Chubb and Michel combined for seven runs of at least 20 yards, many of them by breaking tackles.

Regardless of the styles of team's they've faced, Georgia has proven it can win any type of game be it a shootout or a low scoring, grind-it-out contest.

Fans had just enough time to find their seats before Baker Mayfield, who was ill through the week, started the New Year's Eve celebration.

Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter made an incredible play in the second overtime, blocking Oklahoma's go-ahead field-goal attempt.

Mayfield did give a pretty humble response when asked by reporters about Georgia players yelling at him.

It was a fitting end considering the game's complex make-up.

As the Georgia Bulldogs prepare to play Alabama for the national championship, Dawg Nation is still talking about the incredible come-from-behind win at the Rose Bowl. However, it was certainly was a year to remember for the former walk-on who began his college career at Texas Tech before transferring to Oklahoma following his freshman year.

Georgia cornerback DeAndre Baker, running off the field with a rose clenched in his teeth, said of the Bulldogs' mood at halftime: "We were happy". They needed two overtime periods to do it, but in the end, the Bulldogs went on to win, 54-48. The Sooners had 37 yards in their first five possession of the second half before that drive.

So far, the Kirby Smart Era of Georgia football isn't defined as much by games as it is individual plays and moments, which is rather fitting.

For a first half, it was as ideal as it could be for the Oklahoma offense. He can also catch it and get some points on the board as a receiver. Smith and company just played better. We played a little better in the second half.

But Riley waffled over a decision to go for it on fourth-and-1 from Georgia's 16-yard line.

ATLANTA (AP) - McKenzie Milton threw two touchdown passes and ran for 116 yards with another touchdown, leading No. 10 Central Florida to a 34-27 Peach Bowl win over No. 7 Auburn on Monday that capped the Knights' flawless season.
