The No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs are currently projected to play in the Fiesta Bowl against the No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners, according to SB Nation's latest bowl projections.

Alabama's stunning home loss to Texas A&M threw a wrench into the projections, as the Crimson Tide are now bumped down to the Sugar Bowl. That SEC slot was previously held by Georgia, who now is projected to grab one of the three at-large berths.

However, things could certainly change depending on what happens in the next few weeks. The winner of Alabama/Georgia in the SEC Championship Game could have an outside shot at the BCS Championship Game if two teams among Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame pick up a loss. If that does not happen, the winner between the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs will play in the Sugar Bowl.

Elsewhere, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are now projected for the Music City Bowl as the ACC No. 6 seed against the Vanderbilt Commodores. The Yellow Jackets have won two games in a row and are currently tied atop the ACC's Coastal Division.
