The Georgia Bulldogs nearly earned a trip to the BCS National Championship Game with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, but a heartbreaking 32-28 SEC title game loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide put them in the 2013 Capital One Bowl against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Georgia was one of the land's premier teams this fall. Led by quarterback Aaron Murray, the Bulldogs (11-2 overall) won the loaded SEC East with a 7-1 record. Make no mistake—Murray, despite miscues against the Tide, is a quarterback capable of lighting up defenses and stretching the field with his strong and accurate arm.
Taylor Martinez quarterbacks a Nebraska (10-3, 7-1) offense that was harrassed by the Wisconsin Badgers defense in the Big Ten title bout. The Badgers ran off the Huskers, hanging a decisive 70-31 win on Bo Pelini's boys.
The Huskers lost 63-38 to Ohio State, so they might want to take caution against Georgia, which has an explosive offense that features running back Todd Gurley, among others.
