It didn’t take long for Baker Mayfield to make an impression during the Rose Bowl. Following a missed field goal attempt by the Georgia Bulldogs in the first quarter, one of the nation’s most polarizing gunslingers decided to go a little vintage Undertaker on a college football loving country.
There was still a ton of game left to be played and it turns out that the Dawgs just needed a little wake up call. After going down 31-17 at halftime, Georgia stormed back and won the game 56-48 in double overtime.
Mayfield had himself an electric first half. By the time the first two quarters were all said and done, the senior tossed it around for 200 yards, with one of those going for a touchdown. It also happened that none of his passes were intercepted and that he completed 13 of his 18 attempts.
He did not fare much better in the second half as the Bulldogs pressured him nonstop and ended up sacking him a total of five times and intercepted him once throughout the game.
