The Georgia Bulldogs are projected to play in the Capital One Bowl, according to CBS Sports' bowl predictions.

CBS has Georgia playing the Michigan Wolverines on Jan. 1, 2013.

The Bulldogs are fresh off a 17-9 win over No. 2 Florida on Saturday. Todd Gurley led the charge for Georgia, rushing for 118 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries. Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell also had a big day. He caught five passes for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Georgia entered the game ranked No. 10, but with the win bumped to No. 7. The Gators fell to No. 8.

The Bulldogs played Michigan State in last year's Outback Bowl. Georgia was the favorite going in -- and even opened up a 16-0 lead -- but lost to the Spartans in triple overtime, 33-30. Georgia kicker Blair Walsh attempted a 47-yard field goal to force the game into a fourth overtime, but it was blocked by the Spartans.
