The Rose Bowl, a study in GATA

Georgia hammered Oklahoma’s defense all day and turned the game in the second half when its defense attacked Mayfield.

As the clips in Boyd’s post indicate, there was ferocious blocking by Georgia’s offense — not just the line’s, but also from the tight ends and the wideouts.  Check out Tyler Simmons’ work on this run:

There were Oklahoma defenders being pancaked on almost every play from scrimmage.  Don’t try to tell me that didn’t wear them down at the end, when even Jake Fromm was an effective blocker.

Meanwhile, defensively, it seemed like Georgia’s defense flicked on a massive switch in the third quarter that Oklahoma had no answer for.  As Connolly put it,

Georgia was more physical than Oklahoma and in the end, that was the difference on the day.
