Sony Michel scored on a 27-yard touchdown run in the second overtime, giving Georgia a 54-48 victory over Oklahoma Monday night in the Rose Bowl. The Bulldogs advance to the national championship game at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium next Monday.

 It was Michel who had fumbled the ball away to give Oklahoma a defensive touchdown and 45-38 lead in the fourth quarter. But then it was Michel, taking a direct snap, going down the left sideline to punch it in.

Georgia now awaits either Clemson or Alabama, who played in the the Sugar Bowl Monday night.
