It was Michel's fumble that Oklahoma safety Stevan Parker returned 46-yards for a touchdown to give the Sooners a 45-38 lead late in the fourth quarter. The Heisman victor was happy. Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. Austin Seiberts 33-yard field goal tied it to force the second overtime.
It was a bit unexpected, however. Not so much because of what the players are doing, but because of the play calling of offensive coordinator Jim Chaney. "We just played them better". "We ran a quick out and got a few yards that allowed Rod to kick the field goal".
But Oklahoma still took a commanding 31-17 lead to halftime.
The Sooners put up 48 points on Georgia's defense and Mayfield passed for 287 yards with two touchdowns on the day.
UCF (13-0) won in its final game with coach Scott Frost, who stayed with the team through the bowl game after accepting an offer to become the new coach at Nebraska, his alma mater.
A pretty terrific ride for arguably the best player in Oklahoma's storied football history.
Mayfield then threw an incompletion and an interception that was wiped out by a penalty on the second drive. And it's only fitting that in this greatest of Georgia football seasons-sorry, 1980 team, win or lose next Monday, this is the greatest UGA team of all time-the final boss would be the Alabama Crimson Tide and Smart's mentor, Nick Saban.
A laughing Beamer said that he reacted to the swiftness of the comeback "the same as everyone else did: 'Oh my god!"

It weighs almost 3 pounds, and Queen Elizabeth II jokes that you can't look down while wearing it or your neck might break. Thompson even had a couple of corgis accompanying her in her royal week out, the signature companions of the real queen.
Bellamy had two tackles in the win. But we knew that they hadn't gotten ours.
Nobody could predict the Bulldogs' season could result in a trip to the national championship game after losing heralded sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason for three games after a minor a knee injury in the season opener, opening the door for true freshman Jake Fromm to permanently earn the starting job. "No one in this locker room stopped believing".
"This is why we came back, us four". Sandwiched between them was a 75-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, the eighth-longest touchdown run in Rose Bowl history. Our wide receivers came back and told us that they were running their routes before we went out there and he was on their line.
Of course it couldn't be that easy. Watch the postgame celebration and interviews again, and hear from Sony Michel who was overcome with emotion after leading his team to victory.
Asked whether Michel expressed regret after his costly fumble, Fromm said, "Sony doesn't have to say a lot".
"I think we celebrated enough, and we're kind of getting ready to move on to our next opponent".
"When I scored a touchdown, I knew it was over", he said.
Oklahoma roared back, tying the game at 38 on a six-play, 80-yard drive with Mayfield hitting Dimitri Flowers in the back of end zone for an 11-yard scoring play.
