Rose Bowl Preview

 

Georgia and Oklahoma offers college football fans a game full of possibilities and contrasting styles. Oklahoma runs a wide open passing attack behind their Heisman trophy winning senior quarterback Baker Mayfield. Georgia starts true freshman Jacob Fromme and has a run based attack and playmaking defense. This game will have as many as 18 players get drafted in April and the winner will get to play once more for a national championship.

 

Top 10 Prospects

1: Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia

2: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia

3: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

4: Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma

5: Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma

6: Lorenzo Carter, LB, Georgia

7: Sony Michel, RB, Georgia

8: Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, DE, Oklahoma

9: Trenton Thompson, DT, Georgia

10: Jordan Thomas, CB, Oklahoma

 

When Oklahoma Has The Ball: The Sooners win by throwing and will do that no matter what. Georgia’s elite linebackers and strong defensive line will make it almost impossible for the Sooners to run on them but with Baker Mayfield throwing the ball, Mark Andrews as an outlet tight end, and Orlando Brown protecting his blind side, Oklahoma should be able to get some yards through the air. The Bulldogs will need Trenton Thompson to collapse the pocket and hope that their edge in athleticism will keep Mayfield from making plays on the run.

 

When Georgia Has The Ball: Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will see a lot of action with Chubb being the better inside runner and Michel having better quickness and speed to the outside. Georgia will look to keep their true freshman quarterback from having to throw in the direction of Jordan Thomas often and by running the ball they will take Okoronkwo’s game changing pass rush ability out of the game. The Bulldogs best defense will be to maintain possession as long as possible.

 

Prediction: The biggest statistical edge here is Georgia’s offense versus the Sooner defense. Georgia has better athletes on defense than the Sooners do on offense, and will get some timely stops and turnovers. Oklahoma will need to force Georgia to truncate some drives early, and they won’t be able to do that enough. Georgia 34 - Oklahoma 27
