Well, that was fun while it lasted. With the Meineke Car Care Bowl grabbing the Clemson Tigers, the possibility of renewed hostilities between Clemson and the Georgia Bulldogs in the Music City Bowl have been snuffed out. The MCC’s other tie-in is with the Big East, a conference of which the Dawgs are not a member. #helpful
No teams have been finalized in any of UGA’s potential destinations. All signs still point to a meeting with Conference USA’s winner in the Liberty Bowl, though the Music City and BBVA Compass are still on the table. With the muffler thing, which gets fifth choice of ACC teams, taking the Tigers, the Maryland Terrapins or North Carolina Tar Heels would likely be next in line.
A UGA vs. UNC matchup could be plenty interesting, even though it would get momentarily derailed by their fanbases debating which school is older. Wooooo! And I have no thoughts on Georgia vs. Maryland even after like four weeks of bowl speculating.
