Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Tavarres King will set a school record just for playing in the 2013 Capital One Bowl against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on New Year's Day. The record will be for most games played in his college career at Georgia, according to Tim Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"The time flew by," King said recently. "It feels like just yesterday I was getting dropped off by my parents over there at ECV (East Campus Village)."

Overall, King will play in 56 games in four-plus seasons with the Bulldogs. He played in four games in 2008 before a season-ending ankle injury forced him to take a medical redshirt. He then played in 12 games in 2009, 12 in 2010, 14 in 2011 and 14 this season after the game against Nebraska.

King has also been productive in his time with the Bulldogs, ranking fourth in school history for receiving yards with 2,498 and tied for third in school history in touchdowns with 20. Even though King has accomplished all of this, he hopes for one last win to close out his career:

"We've lost our last two bowl games," King said. "This senior class wants to win its last bowl game. We don't want to go out with a bad taste in our mouth."
