2013 Capital One Bowl: Georgia looks to end bowl losing streak

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

After losing two consecutive bowl games, the Bulldogs are hoping to get back on the right track when they take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Orlando.

The Georgia Bulldogs can snap a two-game bowl losing streak with a win against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day.

Seth Emerson of The Telegraph (Macon) posited that the specter of a third consecutive bowl loss may provide enough of a scare for the Bulldogs to get motivated to defeat the Cornhuskers in January. Sophomore linebacker Amarlo Herrera went so far as to guarantee a victory, saying, "We ain't losing, bottom line." Junior quarterback Aaron Murray noted that a loss to Nebraska could "[d]rop out of the top 10, then it just becomes just another season. So this is definitely a huge game for us."

The Bulldogs lost a 33-30 triple-overtime heartbreaker to the Michigan St. Spartans in the 2012 Outback Bowl, and fell 10-6 to the Central Florida Knights in the 2011 Liberty Bowl. In his article, Emerson pointed out that a win could ensure a top-five finish for Georgia for only the third time since 1983 (2002 and 2007); the Bulldogs currently are ranked sixth in the AP poll. Head coach Mark Richt emphasized the need for Georgia to put "an exclamation point" on the terrific season they've had to this point.
