The Teams: Oklahoma & Georgia
The UGA Bulldogs
The University of Georgia has long been known for its competitive performance in college football. With a 12-1 record coming into the 104th Rose Bowl Game, including an impressive rematch win against Auburn in the SEC Championship game, UGA was looking to extend their winning streak with a victory over the Oklahoma Sooners.
The Oklahoma Sooners
The Sooners have also had an impressive record, having gone 12-1 this season with wins over the Texas Longhorns and TCU that helped cement their place in the Big 12 championship game and earned them a spot in the Rose Bowl. Their dynamic offense has scored an average of 45 points per game throughout their season, so they were sure to give UGA’s defense a run for its money when they faced off on New Year's Day.
