Capital One Bowl 2013 picks and predictions: Georgia popular pick among experts

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

As the SEC's Bulldogs face the Big Ten's Nebraska Cornhuskers, those who know things seem to think Georgia will win.

After being blown out in the Big Ten Championship Game, the experts have jumped off the Nebraska bandwagon. Or maybe the relative strength of the SEC has the pickers giving Georgia the nod to win the Capital One Bowl. The New Year's Day game will be held at Orlando's Citrus Bowl, with the Bulldogs getting all the hype.

NBC's College Football Talk favors Georgia, even predicting a 38-28 victory. Writer John Tamahana cites Nebraska's inability to stop the run as a deciding factor in the game. The Cornhuskers allowed over 500 rushing yards to Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game.

Over at Fox Sports, all four experts throw their hat in Georgia's corner, choosing the No. 6 team over No. 23.

Keeping the trend, five of the six experts at CBS picked Georgia, despite the fact that they were picking against a 10.5-point spread. Without the spread, it could have been a clean sweep for the Bulldogs.
