What should I know about the two teams in the Rose Bowl semifinal?

Ever since the inception of the College Football Playoff in 2014, there have been controversies surrounding how teams are selected to participate for the National Championship Game.

Oklahoma: The Sooners are appearing in their 19th consecutive bowl game and have gone 29-20-1 overall in bowl appearances.

The consensus was that Georgia was still one year away from contending for National Championships. Georgia is scheduled to play a game there in 2025 against UCLA.

The Sooners (12-1) were the second seed in the four-team field announced by the selection committee on Sunday, while the Bulldogs (12-1) were third.

Oklahoma and Georgia, teams that rank seventh and 11 in all-time wins, have never played in football before. Most sources favored Georgia to finish the regular season 10-2 before losing in the SEC Championship Game. Miami won the national title in that memorable edition with a 37-14 victory over Nebraska, which was in the Big 12 at the time.

Clemson couldn't come into the Sugar Bowl with more momentum, as it knocked off Miami (FL) 38-3 in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Saturday night.

"I can always remember watching it, hearing Keith Jackson call it, and it seems like it was always a great game", said Riley, who is from Texas.

Oklahoma played in the Rose Bowl once before - on January 1, 2003, beating Washington State 34-14. Hill picked up 18 yards On its second possession of the second half, TCU tried to pick up a fourth-and-inches in Oklahoma territory by sending Hill on a bootleg, but Ogbonnia Okoronkwo and Parnell Motley beat him to the boundary and knocked him out just short of the line to gain.
