Georgia opened up competition on the offensive line while preparing for the Capital One Bowl.
Georgia held an open competition for its offensive line leading up to its Capital One Bowl game against Nebraska and the results are likely to be similar to the regular season, according to Chip Towers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
As it stands now, Gates will start at left tackle.
Georgia line coach Will Friend told Towers that he thinks the line will look very similar to how it was at the end of the regular season.
Friend added that he thought it was a good idea to open it up in order to make the players compete every day, but he liked where the unit finished at the end of the season.
The Georgia offense averaged 184.2 yards rushing and 274.2 yards passing this season, which ranked in the top 45 nationally in both categories.
