The Sooners quarterback has been ailing the past three days but Oklahoma coaches and teammates are mum on his

Both teams kicked a field goal in the first overtime but Georgia blocked Oklahoma's field goal attempt in the second overtime, the pivotal moment in overtime.

Oklahoma and Georgia will meet at 4:10 p.m. Monday in the College Football Playoff semifinal game in Pasadena, Calif.

The Rose Bowl will be played without a team from either of its traditional Pac-12 or Big Ten conferences for the first time since January 3, 2002.

Anderson had been run out of bounds following a 2-yard carry, and two large Georgia players landed on his midsection at roughly the same time.

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

But stellar linebacker Roquan Smith and the rest of the Bulldogs' defense will come up with enough stops to allow Georgia to earn a spot in the national championship game.

The hardware from the one Smart and the Bulldogs won previous year - the Liberty Bowl - was on display this season on the second floor of the Butts-Mehre building outside the elevators on the way to the football offices.

Georgia got a 55-yard field goal at the end of the half but the Sooners get the ball to start the second.

Temps will drop into the low/mid single digits! Prolonged exposure could lead to hypothermia and may harm pets and livestock. A wind chill warning means the combination of very cold air and the wind will create dangerously low wind chill values.

Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield caught - yes caught - a touchdown pass in the Rose Bowl Monday. Oklahoma defeated Oklahoma State 38-20 to become Big XII champions.

That first Auburn game was on the road, but Georgia got revenge on the Tigers in the SEC title game in Atlanta.

"There were some games that we didn't play like ourselves or we didn't play like we're capable of playing", said Sooners safety Steven Parker.

Georgia also has made one previous appearance in the Rose Bowl, beating UCLA 9-0 on January 1, 1943. The Bulldogs would eventually tie the game up at 45 with a 2-yard rushing touchdown from Nick Chubb.

Oklahoma played in the Rose Bowl once before - on January 1, 2003, beating Washington State 34-14.
