	In the run for the roses Oklahoma won’t be Secretariat

The 2018 Rose Bowl will go down in history as one of the greatest games ever played that needed extra time to settle who was going to play for the National Title. Georgia lost two yards on a running play before Michel broke through the left side for his fourth score. "He stretches and extends plays, extremely explosive, not afraid to make any throws. They showed true character today". Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield threw 41 touchdown passes en route to 4,340 yards through the air to help the Sooners average 44.9 points per contest, but Georgia - led by linebacker and Butkus Award victor Roquan Smith - has held opponents to 158.3 yards passing per game while giving up just 13.2 points per contest.

Either way, both will, evidently, be on display when the Rose Bowl kicks off at 5:00 p.m. ET on ESPN. College football added overtime in 1996. "You know, an epic Rose Bowl game".

Georgia will play either Alabama or Clemson, who play later Monday in the Sugar Bowl.

Georgia will play the victor of the Sugar Bowl played between #4 Alabama and #1 Clemson.

"We got to get back to work".

Raiders going after Jon Gruden, offer him stake in team
Among the perks the Raiders are said to be throwing at Gruden is a partial ownership stake in the team, which is unprecedented. A healthy Derek Carr was primed to bring his team back to the promised land after so much wandering in the desert.

"Dawg Nation travels well", Michel said. "Now we got to finish".

The 104th Rose Bowl was also the highest-scoring, surpassing last year's 52-49 USC victory against Penn State.

Smith came up with his biggest plays in overtime. The Bulldogs sprinted off the sideline and toward the corner of the end zone to mob Michel.

"Can't believe it's over", Mayfield said afterward in a strikingly hoarse voice, his eyes tearing up.

Michel and his roommate and running mate Nick Chubb were awesome for Georgia. "If I see something on the football field that he does that's out of character, even in practice, I would tell (Chubb)". "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". First, Georgia's Rodrigo Blankenship hit from 38 to make it 48-45.

Corey Knapp: Oklahoma scoring first and then getting out to a two-touchdown lead will be a key for the Sooners, as Georgia has rarely had to play from multiple scores down at all this season, and when it did - first Auburn game - it wasn't pretty.

Seibert kicked a 33-yarder and the Bulldogs and Sooners played on, but not for much longer.

Coach Kirby Smart said the defense "stunk it up" in the first half, but there were no dramatic changes in the second.

"He's just such a good athlete", Smart said. Oklahoma managed only 171 yards and one touchdown in the second half and OT. Two short completions on conservative plays only got the Sooners in position for a field goal that was blocked by Georgia's Lorenzo Carter.

Earlier this week, OU quarterback Baker Mayfield had to sit out from several team events in California due to an illness. Fromm finished 20-for-29 for 210 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
On paper, this fixture has an Arsenal victory written all over it, given the attacking talents at Wenger's disposal as well as Palace's struggles to keep clean sheets at Selhurst Park.
