We’ll see if Georgia can continue its momentum in Pasadena. The Bulldogs looked strong in routing Auburn on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta in the SEC Championship Game.
Oklahoma enters as one of the nation’s premier teams with quarterback Baker Mayfield as one of the country’s showcase players. He is this year’s likely Heisman Trophy winner.
