The No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs are projected to play the No. 11 Oklahoma Sooners in the Sugar Bowl in SB Nation's latest round of bowl projections.

Georgia (8-1) is predicted to get the Sugar Bowl slot as the No. 1 team in the SEC outside of Alabama, who's would play in the BCS Championship Game against the Oregon Ducks. The Bulldogs moved up to No. 5 in the latest BCS standings after beating Ole Miss 37-10, while LSU lost a heartbreaker to the top-ranked Crimson Tide.

Oklahoma is projected to get the second at-large BCS bid behind the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Sooners bounced back from their rough loss to the Irish by defeating Iowa State 35-20 on the road. The Sooners will face the high-powered Baylor Bears this Saturday.

In the other BCS games, Notre Dame is projected to face the Kansas State Wildcats in the Fiesta Bowl, the Florida State Seminoles are slated to face the Louisville Cardinals in the Orange Bowl, and the Rose Bowl is looking at the USC Trojans and Nebraska Cornhuskers.
