Lorenzo Carter of Georgia wore an impressive set of epaulettes after Georgia defeated Oklahoma at the Rose Bowl.
In the second overtime period of an epic college football playoff game, Carter blocked an Austin Seiber 27-yard field goal attempt to keep the scoreline at a 48-48 deadlock. Two games later, Bulldogs backer Sony Michel scored a touchdown to send Georgia to this year’s national championship game. You can see the stuck shot below.

After the game, Carter sported a set of gold epaulettes with black spikes on them. On the front is Georgia’s logo and the words âAttack the dayâ and âAttack the ballâ. The back contains the word “SAVAGE”.

The epaulettes are awarded as an incentive for turnovers, much like the “turnover chain” made popular by the University of Miami this season. Based on social media, this looks some like the shoulder pads on the revenue channel.
