The 2018 Rose Bowl marks the Georgia Bulldogs’ first College Football Playoff entry in a matchup with the Oklahoma Sooners, who make their second trip to the semifinal round.
During the regular season, the Bulldogs stumbled once in a 40-17 blowout loss to Auburn then avenged their only defeat in the SEC Championship Game to solidify a spot in the top four. Throughout the year, Georgia has dominated its competition, for the most part, winning 11 out of 12 contests by double-digit margins.
Oklahoma garnered early spotlight with quarterback Baker Mayfield under center. The senior signal-caller went on to win the Heisman Trophy with 4,430 passing yards and 41 touchdown passes to only five interceptions. The offense earned praise with every high-scoring output and finished No. 4 nationally in points.
