There are few things better than hearing the word "overtime" in one of the biggest games of the season. However, "double overtime" tops it.

The 2018 Rose Bowl between the Georgia Bulldogs and Oklahoma Sooners was an absolute classic, which finished with this highlight run from running back Sony Michel.

After a defensive stop, the Bulldogs were in a position where they would win with a score. A two-yard loss occurred on first down, before Michel decided he would put an end to this game.

Lined up in the wildcat, Michel took the direct snap off toward the left end. Oklahoma was overloaded to Georgia's right side, so the extra blocker on the left helped to seal the edge.

However, Oklahoma closed quickly, but Michel was able to evade tacklers. He got to the edge, then turned on the jets, bursting for a 27-yard touchdown.

Michel finished the game with 181 rushing yards and three touchdowns on only 11 attempts. He also caught four passes for another 41 yards and a touchdown. The score gave Georgia the win and had the move on to the National Championship game, where they came up short against the Alabama Crimson Tide in yet another thrilling OT finish.
