Georgia safety Dominick Sanders has played a lot of football games. So, he has developed a knack for being in the right place at the right time. 

At the beginning of the fourth quarter of Monday’s Rose Bowl, Sanders was in perfect position to intercept an overthrow by Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield. Sanders then returned his 16th career interception 39 yards down to the Oklahoma 4-yard line.

Two plays after the interception, quarterback Jake Fromm hit wide receiver Javon Wims in the middle of the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown throw. That gave the Bulldogs their first lead of the Rose Bowl one minute and three seconds into the fourth quarter.
