For the Georgia Bulldogs, a Music City Bowl matchup against their old-school rival Clemson Tigers is still on the table. It’s become less likely now that both schools have .500 records, but if the Music City knows what it’s doing and likes making money it’ll look beyond records here. Assuming it can. There’s probably some dumb ACC rule that prevents it, as with most things in life.
The Dawgs bowl picture is pretty straightforward. Well, relatively speaking. Otherwise unlikely to be picked before No. 8 from among SEC teams, the Dawgs could either wind up in the Liberty against the Conference USA champion, currently looking to be the Central Florida Knights or SMU Mustangs, or in the BBVA Compass in Birmingham on Jan. 8 against a middling Big East team, probably the South Florida Bulls.
Georgia’s star power (A.J. Green) and good traveling reputation could sway the Liberty, but Memphis’ closer proximity to both the Tennessee Volunteers and Kentucky Wildcats could make a difference.
